Most of our calls for bookings end up in conversations about whether our carpet cleaning services include shampooing. This type of cleaning service used to be a popular method until around the 70’s decade.
Carpet shampoo cleaning is now generally regarded as an outdated cleaning method. Thanks to the introduction of deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction which offers a much quicker drying period than the former. This makes it almost an impossible to find a company that still does carpet shampooing.
Overall deep steam cleaning is better in many regards. The equipment is lighter equipment making it easy to use and the drying time is quite fast. In the past it took a very long time for carpets to dry as a thick layer of shampoo drenches the carpet and it needs to be washed out. It’s literally like turning on the washing machine for your carpet. Whereas hot water extraction just uses steam.
After a long wait, the carpet will be clean but you’ll still notice a sticky feeling of residue left over.
Because of this sticky residue, it will be easier for dirt to accumulate on the carpet so it’ll need to be cleaned more often. The chemicals in the shampoo will also later stain the carpet with a yellow like effect.
In today’s world you will only find a company using shampoo carpet cleaning in the worst of the worst situations. Imagine some carpet that is so heavily stained, soiled and dirty that it’s practically black and has been for years.
While the above example could be a reason to call for carpet shampooing. It is still undeniable that deep steam cleaning can still effectively restore carpets even of this state.
