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.
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.
Overall deep steam cleaning is better in many regards. The equipment is lighter equipment making it easy to use and the drying time is quite fast. In the past it took a very long time for carpets to dry as a thick layer of shampoo drenches the carpet and it needs to be washed out. It’s literally like turning on the washing machine for your carpet. Whereas hot water extraction just 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.
This sticky residue will only attract more dust and dirt to the carpet requiring it to be cleaned more often. You’ll also notice a yellowish stain on the carpet later as an effect of the chemicals used in the process.
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.
Technically, a situation like this could use a shampoo carpet cleaning. But even carpets in the worst conditions can effortlessly be rehabilitated with the modern deep steam cleaning.
