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.
Generally, we can say that deep steam cleaning is a better alternative to shampooing. One reason is that the apparatus is lighter making it easier to use. Another is that it is much faster to dry because the procedure only uses steam, verses shampooing which dries up much longer. Imagine it is like soaking your carpet in a washing machine to completely rinse off excess soap.
After the painstakingly long time of waiting for the cleaning process to finish. The carpet will still be left with a sticky feeling to it.
Due to the sticky surface, it’ll now be faster for grime to build upon the carpet which is counterproductive. The chemicals on the shampoo will also over time stain the carpet with a yellow like effect.
It’s almost impossible to find a company that still does shampoo cleaning unless your carpet is in a very hopeless situation like it hasn’t been cleaned for years. There are a thick grime layer and deep stains underneath.
While it can be justified for carpets in these state to be shampooed, deep steam cleaning can still easily restore carpets while the above conditions are present.
