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.
Carpet shampoo cleaning is now generally regarded as an outdated cleaning method.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 has a number of pros over carpet shampoo cleaning. First is that the equipment used is lighter, therefore, it is effortless to use. Second, because the service only uses steam, it takes less time to dry out compared to shampooing. Where the carpet will have to be rigorously rinsed to remove rich shampoo layers.
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.
These residues can actually cause dirt to build up faster, therefore, requiring more regular cleaning of your carpets. Soon you’ll also notice a yellowish stain appearing due to the chemicals used during shampooing.
Because of better alternatives, shampoo carpet cleaning is only called for on carpets with a really bad condition. Think thick grime, deep stains all over and almost untouched for years so all the germs have been pretty much left to bind very deeply into the carpet fibers.
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.
