Until about the 1970s, carpet shampoo cleaning was a very popular type of service. But, not so much anymore. Still, almost in every other inquiry we get brings up shampoo.
In the modern times like in 2019 and beyond, shampooing a carpet is now considered an obsolete cleaning method. A newer method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) has been the new favorite due to faster drying periods. That is why it very difficult to find companies that still offer carpet shampooing.
There are a lot of advantages to deep steam cleaning over shampooing. For one, it uses a piece of much lighter equipment. Another is the much quicker drying time. Before, you will have to wait a long time for carpets to dry up as repeated rinsing was required to wash out thick layers of shampoo. While hot water extraction only uses steam.
Then, after waiting for the carpet to completely dry up, you will still feel as though the carpet has a sticky residue left over on the surface.
Dirt will accumulate faster on the carpet now that it’s sticky giving you the hassle of needing to clean it more regularly. Yellowish stains will also be apparent over-time because of the behavior of the chemicals used in the process.
Companies will only resort to shampoo carpet cleaning in almost hopeless carpet situations. Like deeply stained, heavily soiled and essentially almost black carpet due to dirt buildup.
While these situations can rationalize shampoo cleaning. It is still indisputable that deep steam cleaning can efficiently bring even carpets in such conditions back to life.
