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.
In fact, washing a carpet with shampoo is already an obsolete cleaning method. This is mainly due to a more efficient method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) which dries up significantly faster than shampooing. That is why it can be a pain finding a company that will still shampoo carpets in modern times.
Weighing in all advantages, we can generally say that deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction is a better cleaning method. It uses lightweight equipment making it painless to use. It also has a significantly less drying period because the procedure only requires to use steam. In the past, shampooing takes painstakingly longer to dry out because one will have to rinse off the excess layers of shampoo with of water.
After a long wait, the carpet will be clean but you’ll still notice a sticky feeling of residue left over.
Because of this sticky residue, it will be easier for dirt to accumulate on the carpet so it’ll need to be cleaned more often. The chemicals in the shampoo will also later stain the carpet with a yellow like effect.
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.
Technically, a situation like this could use a shampoo carpet cleaning. But even carpets in the worst conditions can effortlessly be rehabilitated with the modern deep steam cleaning.
