Carpet shampoo is a special cleaning product designed to wash carpets and rugs. This detergent can be found in a dry powder or liquid form, which creates enough foam to attract and suspend dirt particles.
When it comes to the liquid option, a long-lasting foam is essential for a good carpet cleaning, as the product needs to break the electrostatic bond between dirt and the carpet’s fibres. The dry powder alternative, on the other hand, doesn’t create such foam, but it’s not less effective.
How Often Should a Commercial Carpet Be Shampooed?
The requirement of shampooing will highly depend on where the carpet is located and how frequntly it will be getting dirty. For example, high foot traffic areas will require more frequent cleaning to keep carpet looking its best, while lower foot traffic areas can get away with being shampooed less frequently.
Here are a few general best practices for shampooing carpet:
Generally, people or non-professionals use terms like “carpet shampoo” and “steam cleaning” as the same. However, they are very different cleaning methods.
Steam cleaning usually describes the process of hot water extraction wherein boiling water and high pressure are used to clean the carpet. Steam or hot water mist appears to come from the cleaning tool — which is not always an actual steam cleaner. However, the presence of steam is why some may call it “steam cleaning.”
Usually, professionals apply a pre-spray or pre-conditioner to the carpet before being thoroughly rinsed and extracted using a portable or truck-mounted extraction system.
Shampooing, on the other hand, relies on a rotary brush carpet cleaning machine to apply the shampoo and work the foam into the carpet fibres. Once dry, the cleaning residue is removed with a vacuum, which is very common in interim maintenance programs for commercial carpets.
Hot water extraction is done to the heavily soiled carpets after finishing the shampooing for a more profound and thorough cleaning.
Commercial carpeting often has high foot traffic that brings in a lot of dirt, dust, and allergens. Not only does this become eye-catching, but it could potentially turn customers off of a business. It can also impact indoor air quality and may contribute to the poor health of building occupants.
A thorough shampooing cleans a carpet of dirt and grime, which maintains its cleanliness and presentability, also extending the carpet’s life. For best results, commercial facilities must have a maintenance program for carpeted areas that includes daily, periodic, and restorative carpet cleaning procedures.

After leaving the solution for a few minutes, our professionals start shampooing the carpet. For shampooing, we apply our special liquid shampoo on the carpet to clean.
While cleaning, our professionals make sure that they apply recommended quality & quantity of shampoo as well as the foam of shampoo should not go beyond the particular layer of the carpet. If access is applied, then it can ruin the carpet fabric.
After cleaning, they use a hot water extractor to extract all the water from the carpet and leave it outside for some time to dry properly. If putting it outside is not possible, it is advisable to let it dry for some time and not to put heavy objects on it, as well as to avoid walking on it until it is scorched.
