Any time you have your carpet professionally deep cleaned, your home will feel cleaner than it has in a long time. It leaves your carpet feeling like the day it was installed in your home. This can leave many homeowners leery of walking on it. Walking on your carpet prematurely after a professional cleaning, can leave you feeling like you wasted your money. It can have a big impact on how well your carpet stays clean in the future. Carpet Dry-Tech is here to talk about how long you should wait to walk on your carpet after you have it professionally cleaned.
How Long Should You Not Walk on Carpet After Cleaning?
The biggest factor that comes in to play when you have your carpet professionally cleaned is the drying process. If you don’t allow your carpet to fully dry after a cleaning, you will likely be disappointed with the results. Your carpet fibers have been restored and will be standing up like they did when your carpet was first installed. If you walk on it while these fibers are still wet, they will more than likely lay back down. If you allow your carpet ample time to dry, the fibers will stay upright, and your carpet will look newer for longer. You also have to consider the dirt and dust that can accumulate easily in the fibers when they are still wet as well. They are far more susceptible to dirt collection during this time when they are drying after a professionally cleaning.
What Helps Carpets Dry Faster?
It is hard to say how long it will take for your carpet to dry but we estimate just 1-2 hours using our superior dry carpet cleaning method. There are several different factors that play a role in the amount of time it takes for your carpet to dry.
– Humidity: The amount of humidity in your home will play a role in how long it takes for carpet to dry. If you have lower levels of humidity in your home, you will see much faster drying times.
– Temperature. The warmer your home is, the faster it will dry as well. The warm air will help the moisture to evaporate from your carpet. Keeping your home cooler will only prolong the drying time.
– Material: The material that your carpet is made of can have an impact on how long it takes your carpet to dry. If you have carpet made from a material like wool, which is extremely absorbent, you will have to wait much longer for your carpet to completely dry.
