A lot of the service inquiries we get asked the question of if our cleaning methods include shampooing. Carpet shampoo washing used to be a very popular service from way back in the 1970s.
In fact, washing a carpet with shampoo is already an obsolete cleaning method. This is mainly due to a more efficient method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) which dries up significantly faster than shampooing. That is why it can be a pain finding a company that will still shampoo carpets in modern times.
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.
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 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 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.
