Shampooing of carpets used to be a hit cleaning service until not later than the 1970s. The funny thing is almost every other booking inquiry we get end up with a customer asking whether carpets will be washed with shampoo.
Nowadays it is difficult to find information on carpet shampoo cleaning. And very hard to find a company that still does this service. This is mainly due to newer cleaning technology called deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction. It has become well favored for its faster drying time.
Deep steam cleaning has a lot more edge over carpet shampooing if you think about it. It’s a lot easier to use and carry around as the apparatus is usually lightweight. Also, because the process only uses steam, it dries up almost instantly. While in the past, you would have longer waiting times to dry as thick shampoo layers usually drenching the carpet.
Once the carpet’s all dried up and looking clean, and after waiting for ages, the carpet will still feel like it’s got an icky layer of residue left.
Grime will build up over time on the sticky residue. More carpet cleaning will be required over time. The shampoo chemicals will over time also give a permanent yellowish stain to your carpets.
Most modern companies will only resort to shampoo carpet cleaning for the worst of situations. The carpet has to be very filthy, soiled with thick grime and almost blackened by stains for over a number of years.
In general, companies can potentially consider shampooing the carpet. However, even the worst conditions can still easily be addressed by the more efficient deep steam cleaning method.
