Commercial Carpeting - Shampoo

In the shampoo process, a high-foaming detergent is applied to the carpet nap through a shower or channel-feed nylon bristled brush rotating at a speed recommended by the equipment manufacturer that is safe for the carpet being cleaned. A pre-conditioner may or may not be used prior to shampooing.

The agitation of the brush creates the foam that suspends the soil. Depending on the detergent used, either a wet vacuum extracts the suspended soils and detergents, or, upon drying, the suspended soils and detergents are vacuumed. Brushes not properly lubricated with shampoo can cause textural damage to the carpet. 

Rotary shampoo, due to the aggressiveness of the brush, is considered to be a restorative cleaning method. When a carpet needs a true restorative cleaning, rotary shampooing followed by hot water extraction is the method of choice.


1. Pre-vacuum the carpet.

2. Dilute Matrix Champion Rotary Shampoo at 8 oz per gallon of water into the shower feed tank on a rotary shampoo brush machine.

3. Establish an area to be cleaned of approximately 4 feet x 4 feet. Go over the area twice in a circular motion, overlapping half of the circle. The foaming should diminish as you clean. Continue this process through the room.

4. For extremely soiled carpet, follow the shampoo process with hot water extraction. If this was a maintenance cleaning, the shampoo residue can be vacuumed after drying.

5. If the carpet is cut pile, groom the carpet after cleaning.

6. Set up air movers throughout the area to speed drying.

Warning: Always test materials for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix products unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
