Shampooing of carpets used to be a hit cleaning service until not later than the 1970s. The funny thing is almost every other booking inquiry we get end up with a customer asking whether carpets will be washed with shampoo.
Generally, we can consider shampooing a carpet an outdated type of cleaning service.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.
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 all the waiting, you’ll end up a bit disappointed to feel the carpet has got quite a sticky. This is a residue left over from the shampoo.
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 recent times, only the worst case scenarios call for companies to do carpet shampoo cleaning. For example, if the carpets are almost black with stains and grime has accumulated for years.
While these situations can rationalize shampoo cleaning. It is still indisputable that deep steam cleaning can efficiently bring even carpets in such conditions back to life.
