Shampooing a carpet was a popular cleaning method from way back until the ’70s. Although, surprisingly we still get asked by clients if their carpets will be shampooed.
For the most park shampooing a carpet to get it clean is a dead cleaning method. This is because deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) has taken over due to the faster drying times. It’s almost impossible to find information on carpet shampooing or actually try to find a company that will do it for you.
In fact, there are a number of reasons why deep steam cleaning is a much better cleaning method than shampooing. It is easier to use as the equipment is much lighter. It is also less time consuming as it dries up much faster. Shampooing would mean thorough rinsing with water which soaks the carpet taking longer to completely dry out. Whereas the alternative only uses steam.
After a long wait, the carpet will be clean but you’ll still notice a sticky feeling of residue left over.
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.
In this day and age, your carpet has to be completely soiled, deeply stained and almost blackened by accumulated dirt for years to resort to shampooing your carpet. For the most part, no residential situation will fall into that scenario.
Essentially, the above conditions are enough can justify shampooing your carpet. But, even for the worst cases like this deep steam cleaning can still easily restore your carpet too as good as new.
