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.
Carpet shampoo cleaning is now generally regarded as an outdated cleaning method. Thanks to the introduction of deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction which offers a much quicker drying period than the former. This makes it almost an impossible to find a company that still does carpet shampooing.
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.
Then, after waiting for the carpet to completely dry up, you will still feel as though the carpet has a sticky residue left over on the surface.
Dust and dirt will stick to this reside which would someday require a more intense cleaning which is counter-productive. Not to mention the chemicals of the shampoo will, later on, create a yellowish stain to the carpet.
In recent times, only the worst case scenarios call for companies to do carpet shampoo cleaning. For example, if the carpets are almost black with stains and grime has accumulated for years.
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.
