Shampooing a carpet was a popular cleaning method from way back until the ’70s. Although, surprisingly we still get asked by clients if their carpets will be shampooed.
Now, a more updated method of cleaning that’s based on newer technology is deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction. This service provides a much quicker drying time than carpet shampooing, which is why it is almost impossible to find companies that will still wash your carpets with shampoo.
In fact, there are a number of reasons why deep steam cleaning is a much better cleaning method than shampooing. It is easier to use as the equipment is much lighter. It is also less time consuming as it dries up much faster. Shampooing would mean thorough rinsing with water which soaks the carpet taking longer to completely dry out. Whereas the alternative only uses steam.
After the painstakingly long time of waiting for the cleaning process to finish. The carpet will still be left with a sticky feeling to it.
In effect, the carpet will collect more dirt because of the sticky residue which will then mean you’ll have to have it cleaned more often. Yellow blotches will also appear over time as a reaction to the chemicals in the shampoo.
Because of better alternatives, shampoo carpet cleaning is only called for on carpets with a really bad condition. Think thick grime, deep stains all over and almost untouched for years so all the germs have been pretty much left to bind very deeply into the carpet fibers.
Even though these are justifiable reasons to resort to a shampoo cleaning service. It is still beyond question. As there is nothing deep steam cleaning can’t fix!
