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.
Nowadays it is difficult to find information on carpet shampoo cleaning. And very hard to find a company that still does this service. This is mainly due to newer cleaning technology called deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction. It has become well favored for its faster drying time.
Deep steam cleaning is considered a much better method in a lot of aspects. Lightweight machinery is used making it more accessible for general use. The drying time is also significantly faster as it only uses steam compared to shampooing which would soak the carpet with shampoo layers that would then require thorough rinsing.
After all the trouble of carpet shampooing, there will be a soap residue left over. And it will fell a little sticky.
Grime will build up over time on the sticky residue. More carpet cleaning will be required over time. The shampoo chemicals will over time also give a permanent yellowish stain to your carpets.
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.
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.
