We still get inquiries from clients whether their carpets will be shampooed during the cleaning service. This type of cleaning method used to be a hit from way back until around the late 1970s.
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.
Deep steam cleaning is considered a much better method in a lot of aspects. Lightweight machinery is used making it more accessible for general use. The drying time is also significantly faster as it only uses steam compared to shampooing which would soak the carpet with shampoo layers that would then require thorough rinsing.
After all the whole cleaning process, you will still notice a sticky feeling left on the carpet due to the residue that the soap left over.
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.
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.
Generally in a commercial setting, this could be a justifiable reason to shampoo the carpet. But even then a carpet like that can easily be cleaned to look like new with deep steam cleaning.
