This type of service was widely popular until about the 1970s. But the funny thing is practically every second call we get to book our services end up in a conversation about if the carpet will be shampooed.
Generally, we can consider shampooing a carpet an outdated type of cleaning service. Taking over is a more modern method called deep steam cleaning, also popularly known as hot water extraction. This service dries up significantly quicker than shampooing. Making it a more efficient substitute. Because of this, it is now almost impossible to find information on carpet shampooing. And even harder to find companies that still offer this service.
There are a lot of advantages to deep steam cleaning over shampooing. For one, it uses a piece of much lighter equipment. Another is the much quicker drying time. Before, you will have to wait a long time for carpets to dry up as repeated rinsing was required to wash out thick layers of shampoo. While hot water extraction only uses steam.
Then, after waiting for the carpet to completely dry up, you will still feel as though the carpet has a sticky residue left over on the surface.
Dirt will accumulate faster on the carpet now that it’s sticky giving you the hassle of needing to clean it more regularly. Yellowish stains will also be apparent over-time because of the behavior of the chemicals used in the process.
With the presence of better methods, shampoo cleaning is almost never used. Unless it’s the worst carpet situation like those really heavy stains, mud, and practically black looking carpets. And the carpet has been like this for years.
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.
