Shampooing a carpet was a popular cleaning method from way back until the ’70s. Although, surprisingly we still get asked by clients if their carpets will be shampooed.
For years, carpet shampoo cleaning has been an outdated type of cleaning.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.
In general, deep steam cleaning is the preferred cleaning method. One of the pluses is that its lightweight equipment is in much easier to operate. Another plus is that it dries up remarkably quicker as it only uses steam during the cleaning process. While the shampoo process would mean you’d have to wait longer for carpets to dry as it would require intensive rinsing to remove thick layers of soap that seep into the carpet.
After all the trouble of carpet shampooing, there will be a soap residue left over. And it will fell a little sticky.
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.
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 the above example could be a reason to call for carpet shampooing. It is still undeniable that deep steam cleaning can still effectively restore carpets even of this state.
