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.
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.
There are a lot of advantages to deep steam cleaning over shampooing. For one, it uses a piece of much lighter equipment. Another is the much quicker drying time. Before, you will have to wait a long time for carpets to dry up as repeated rinsing was required to wash out thick layers of shampoo. While hot water extraction only uses steam.
Then, after what seems to an age waiting for the carpet to dry up you will still notice a sticky residue left on the carpet.
It will now become easier for dirt to accumulate on the carpet once it’s sticky therefore you’ll have to clean it more often. The chemicals used in the process will also give the carpet a yellowish stain in the future.
Most modern companies will only resort to shampoo carpet cleaning for the worst of situations. The carpet has to be very filthy, soiled with thick grime and almost blackened by stains for over a number of years.
Generally speaking, the above conditions can justify the use of shampoo cleaning method. But nonetheless, even carpets in such state can easily be cleaned to a new like state with deep steam cleaning.
