At Green Kleaning Services, LLC we don't use carpet shampoo for commercial and residential cleaning of carpets, area rugs, and upholstery. We employ various products for different situations and carpet types. We also use carpet cleaning machines with strong suction that will extract all residue from the solutions as well as dirt and debris.
Carpet shampooing is mostly an outdated technique for cleaning carpets. "Shampooing a carpet" tends to be a catch-all phrase for carpet cleaning. Far better ways have been developed to clean carpets efficiently, and more thoroughly without the use of shampoo products that can leave residue if not properly flushed out.
It is still employed by professionals but with the advent of new techniques such as low moisture cleaning, encapsulation, and hot water extraction using a professional steam cleaner this method is on the decline.
Remember that carpet acts like a sponge and traps a lot of dirt and debris. This is also true for any product that is applied and then not extracted completely.
I only expand on this method as it can be a viable option–though more time consuming–as long as care is taken to perform the cleaning correctly.
