Most of our calls for bookings end up in conversations about whether our carpet cleaning services include shampooing. This type of cleaning service used to be a popular method until around the 70’s decade.
A more modern cleaning method has taken over shampooing a carpet in current times. This is called deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction which has become more popular because it saves more time on drying. Because of this, not a lot of companies provide carpet shampooing nowadays.
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 all the whole cleaning process, you will still notice a sticky feeling left on the carpet due to the residue that the soap left over.
These residues can actually cause dirt to build up faster, therefore, requiring more regular cleaning of your carpets. Soon you’ll also notice a yellowish stain appearing due to the chemicals used during shampooing.
Because of better alternatives, shampoo carpet cleaning is only called for on carpets with a really bad condition. Think thick grime, deep stains all over and almost untouched for years so all the germs have been pretty much left to bind very deeply into the carpet fibers.
Overall, these conditions are enough to rationalize shampooing your carpets. However, it’s really not needed as there is nothing deep steam cleaning can’t do.
