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.
Currently, a more advanced cleaning method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) has taken over carpet shampooing. Mainly because it dries up much quicker. This is why most companies consider washing a carpet with shampoo an obsolete method. Making it difficult to find information about it.
Weighing in all advantages, we can generally say that deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction is a better cleaning method. It uses lightweight equipment making it painless to use. It also has a significantly less drying period because the procedure only requires to use steam. In the past, shampooing takes painstakingly longer to dry out because one will have to rinse off the excess layers of shampoo with of water.
Then, after what seems to an age waiting for the carpet to dry up you will still notice a sticky residue left on the carpet.
Due to the sticky surface, it’ll now be faster for grime to build upon the carpet which is counterproductive. The chemicals on the shampoo will also over time stain the carpet with a yellow like effect.
Companies will only resort to shampoo carpet cleaning in almost hopeless carpet situations. Like deeply stained, heavily soiled and essentially almost black carpet due to dirt buildup.
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.
