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.
Carpet shampoo cleaning is now generally regarded as an outdated cleaning method. Thanks to the introduction of deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction which offers a much quicker drying period than the former. This makes it almost an impossible to find a company that still does carpet shampooing.
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.
Even after the carpet has dried up. It will still be left with a sticky feeling due to the remnants of shampoo that is left over.
This will cause more dirt to adhere to the carpet which is only counterproductive. Over time the carpet will also get yellowish blotches all over due to the chemicals used when shampooing.
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.
Even though these are justifiable reasons to resort to a shampoo cleaning service. It is still beyond question. As there is nothing deep steam cleaning can’t fix!
