Carpet shampooing is an old carpet cleaning method that is basically obsolete. It has, however, become an interchangeable name with dry carpet cleaning. Many operators who offer dry carpet cleaning services will use the term ‘carpet shampooing’ interchangeably since this method looks like the carpet is being shampooed.
The traditional form of shampoo carpet cleaning basically involves the room looking like it was filled up like a bubble bath. The problem with this method was it was hard to remove all of the moisture and foam so it didn't really become a popular method.
Modern day carpet shampooing uses a lot less moisture and foam and the way we do it delivers amazing results.
How Does Carpet Shampooing Work?
The cleaning agent is normally applied with a sprayer by an expert technician to the areas of the carpet. The shampooing machine has a rotating brush which helps scrub the carpet and remove soil and dirt from it.
The cleaning agent foams as it’s agitated which helps in removing dirt and marks from deep within the pile of the carpet. A vacuum can be used to extract excess water and detergent solution remaining in the carpet after shampooing. The use of a vacuum is however not mandatory and can be used only if there is excess water that needs to be vacuumed off. This ensures that there are no residues left behind on the carpet, even though the residue isn't harmful anyway.
An advantage of this cleaning process is that it can make it easier to remove heavy soiling that has been ground in and it's extremely effective at doing so.
