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For years, carpet shampoo cleaning has been an outdated type of cleaning.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 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.
Once the carpet’s all dried up and looking clean, and after waiting for ages, the carpet will still feel like it’s got an icky layer of residue left.
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.
In this day and age, only the worst carpet scenarios will call for shampoo cleaning. Such as a thick dark muddy stain, thick grime and a carpet that pretty much looks black and has been for years.
In general, companies can potentially consider shampooing the carpet. However, even the worst conditions can still easily be addressed by the more efficient deep steam cleaning method.
