Until the 1970s, carpet shampooing was a favorite type of service. To our amusement, almost every other booking inquiry we get still asks if their carpets will be shampooed.
For years, carpet shampoo cleaning has been an outdated type of cleaning. Thanks to deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) waiting for carpets to dry out has now been significantly faster. It is because of this that most companies prefer the latter and it is now difficult to find companies that still do shampooing.
Deep steam cleaning is actually more efficient in a lot of different aspects. It is less complicated to use as the equipment is usually lightweight. Also, no more waiting for a long time to for the carpet to dry as it only uses steam whereas carpet shampooing would require thorough cleansing with water to remove excess shampoo layers that soaked into the carpet.
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.
It’s almost impossible to find a company that still does shampoo cleaning unless your carpet is in a very hopeless situation like it hasn’t been cleaned for years. There are a thick grime layer and deep stains underneath.
While these situations can rationalize shampoo cleaning. It is still indisputable that deep steam cleaning can efficiently bring even carpets in such conditions back to life.
