Carpet Dry Times after a Professional Carpet Cleaning

A common question that most customers always ask around East Texas is ” How long will it take for my carpets to dry?”

Professionally cleaned carpet should dry within four to six hours or more often less, and should never stay wet more than 14 hours. In some cases drying time may vary due to heavily soiled carpet since more water is used to remove the soil.

Slow-drying carpet may have had too much cleaning solution applied and not enough removed or extracted; or it may simply be a matter of humid-air conditions in the area cleaned. It is always advised to make sure the air is running in the house (AC during summer and heat in winter) and that any ceiling fans are left on.

Carpet cleaning machines vary in their ability to control wetting, to properly extract solution and soil, and to implement drying procedures both during and after cleaning. A good carpet cleaning machine will leave as little moisture as possible due to its higher powered vacuum system.

Professional carpet cleaning companies use truck – mounted carpet cleaning machines. These machines produce high heat and high vacuum, the high vacuum lifts the water out of the carpet and into the waste tank of the carpet cleaning truck. In most cases your carpet is only slightly damp to the touch when the technician leaves.
