Is carpet shampooing effective?

Carpet shampooing involves using a suds based detergent to clean your carpet.
The suds are usually mixed with hot water, then scrubbed into the carpet.
The shampoo is then extracted with a wet vacuum
The biggest downside to carpet shampooing is that a good portion of the shampoo does not get extracted, and remains in the carpet. This makes the carpet sticky, in time. The stickiness will then attractive dust and dirt over time, much like leaving shampoo in your hair would.
The other downside is that shampooing carpet cleaning units are typically weaker than their counterparts, the truck mounted steam carpet cleaners.
Carpet shampooing is also prone to over-wetting carpets, which can cause mildew and mold.
Shampooing can be effective for spot cleaning carpets, if you use a shampoo that does not generate much foam.
Carpet shampooing is also effective when cleaning car mats, as you can spray them down with a hose, getting all the soap and shampoo out.
