How long do you have to stay off the carpet after cleaning?
To keep carpets lovely and clean you will need to maintain a regular cleaning pattern. Getting a professional carpet cleaning is a great way to get rid of any dirt, dust and debris that settle into your dirty carpet over time, causing brown spots, permanent stains, pet stains and more.
Most carpets typically need anywhere from 6-24 hours for dry time after a deep cleaning. This is dependent on multiple factors such as:
- Time of year
- Air circulation
- Professional cleaning method
These four factors could either mean your carpets will have a faster or shorter drying time.
Can I Speed Up The Process?
If you’re truly desperate to get those carpets dry without ruining them, there are a few ways you may be able to decrease a carpets drying process:
- Open Windows
- Air conditioning
We understand that carpets are typically found in rooms that take up a significant portion of your living space, which is why businesses such as Impressions, in Arvada, CO, provide customers with plastic shoe covers so you can walk on your carpets as soon as we’re finished. When moving from damp carpet onto slippery services such as hardwood, be cautious of sliding dangers. Keep an eye on kids to prevent slipping or falls. Although walking is fine in either shoe covers or clean socks it is advised to wait until sufficient time has passed and the carpet is completely dry before moving any furniture back into the room. This is because moving furniture too soon can dent the carpet fibers and possibly cause rust stains.
