Shampooing a carpet was a method of cleaning that was in demand until around the 70’s decade. Today we have better technology for cleaning. However, we still get asked by prospective clients if their carpets will be shampooed.
Generally, we can consider shampooing a carpet an outdated type of cleaning service. Taking over is a more modern method called deep steam cleaning, also popularly known as hot water extraction. This service dries up significantly quicker than shampooing. Making it a more efficient substitute. Because of this, it is now almost impossible to find information on carpet shampooing. And even harder to find companies that still offer this service.
Comparing the two cleaning methods, deep steam cleaning would be regarded as a better option for so many reasons. One would be the equipment used is much lighter making it easier to use and carry around. The other is that it saves a lot of time as it dries up quickly. The method only uses steam. If shampooed, thick layers of the soap will seep into the carpet requiring repeated and thorough washing. Therefore it will take a long time to dry up.
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.
Dust and dirt will stick to this reside which would someday require a more intense cleaning which is counter-productive. Not to mention the chemicals of the shampoo will, later on, create a yellowish stain to the carpet.
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.
While it can be justified for carpets in these state to be shampooed, deep steam cleaning can still easily restore carpets while the above conditions are present.
