Almost every other person who calls us asks if the carpet cleaning service includes washing with shampoo. This type of service used to be popular until around the 1970s.
Now, a more updated method of cleaning that’s based on newer technology is deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction. This service provides a much quicker drying time than carpet shampooing, which is why it is almost impossible to find companies that will still wash your carpets with shampoo.
In general, deep steam cleaning is the preferred cleaning method. One of the pluses is that its lightweight equipment is in much easier to operate. Another plus is that it dries up remarkably quicker as it only uses steam during the cleaning process. While the shampoo process would mean you’d have to wait longer for carpets to dry as it would require intensive rinsing to remove thick layers of soap that seep into the carpet.
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 stickiness can actually attract dirt quite easily so it’s quite counter-intuitive. Over time you can also get a yellowing stain like effect showing up on the carpet due to the nature of the chemicals that were used.
In today’s world you will only find a company using shampoo carpet cleaning in the worst of the worst situations. Imagine some carpet that is so heavily stained, soiled and dirty that it’s practically 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.
