Almost every other person who calls us asks if the carpet cleaning service includes washing with shampoo. This type of service used to be popular until around the 1970s.
Currently, a more advanced cleaning method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) has taken over carpet shampooing. Mainly because it dries up much quicker. This is why most companies consider washing a carpet with shampoo an obsolete method. Making it difficult to find information about it.
Overall deep steam cleaning is better in many regards. The equipment is lighter equipment making it easy to use and the drying time is quite fast. In the past it took a very long time for carpets to dry as a thick layer of shampoo drenches the carpet and it needs to be washed out. It’s literally like turning on the washing machine for your carpet. Whereas hot water extraction just uses steam.
After all the trouble of carpet shampooing, there will be a soap residue left over. And it will fell a little sticky.
This sticky residue will only attract more dust and dirt to the carpet requiring it to be cleaned more often. You’ll also notice a yellowish stain on the carpet later as an effect of the chemicals used in the process.
In current times, you’ll only find a company willing to do shampoo carpet cleaning if the situation really calls for it. An example of this could be deeply stained and dirty, grimy black carpet.
Essentially, the above conditions are enough can justify shampooing your carpet. But, even for the worst cases like this deep steam cleaning can still easily restore your carpet too as good as new.
