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.
For years, carpet shampoo cleaning has been an outdated type of cleaning. Thanks to deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) waiting for carpets to dry out has now been significantly faster. It is because of this that most companies prefer the latter and it is now difficult to find companies that still do shampooing.
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.
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.
In effect, the carpet will collect more dirt because of the sticky residue which will then mean you’ll have to have it cleaned more often. Yellow blotches will also appear over time as a reaction to the chemicals in the shampoo.
In this day and age, your carpet has to be completely soiled, deeply stained and almost blackened by accumulated dirt for years to resort to shampooing your carpet. For the most part, no residential situation will fall into that scenario.
While these situations can rationalize shampoo cleaning. It is still indisputable that deep steam cleaning can efficiently bring even carpets in such conditions back to life.
