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.
For the most park shampooing a carpet to get it clean is a dead cleaning method. This is because deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) has taken over due to the faster drying times. It’s almost impossible to find information on carpet shampooing or actually try to find a company that will do it for you.
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.
After the carpets are clean and what seems like a lifetime has gone by for the drying to take place the carpet will feel like they have a sticky residue left over.
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 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.
Essentially, the above conditions are enough can justify shampooing your carpet. But, even for the worst cases like this deep steam cleaning can still easily restore your carpet too as good as new.
