Until about the 1970s, carpet shampoo cleaning was a very popular type of service. But, not so much anymore. Still, almost in every other inquiry we get brings up 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 has a number of pros over carpet shampoo cleaning. First is that the equipment used is lighter, therefore, it is effortless to use. Second, because the service only uses steam, it takes less time to dry out compared to shampooing. Where the carpet will have to be rigorously rinsed to remove rich shampoo layers.
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.
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 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.
