We still get inquiries from clients whether their carpets will be shampooed during the cleaning service. This type of cleaning method used to be a hit from way back until around the late 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.
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.
After the carpets are clean and what seems like a lifetime has gone by for the drying to take place the carpet will feel like they have a sticky residue left over.
This will cause more dirt to adhere to the carpet which is only counterproductive. Over time the carpet will also get yellowish blotches all over due to the chemicals used when shampooing.
In this day and age, your carpet has to be completely soiled, deeply stained and almost blackened by accumulated dirt for years to resort to shampooing your carpet. For the most part, no residential situation will fall into that scenario.
Generally in a commercial setting, this could be a justifiable reason to shampoo the carpet. But even then a carpet like that can easily be cleaned to look like new with deep steam cleaning.
