How Long Do Newly-Cleaned Carpets Take To Completely Dry? | BCS Cleaning Specialists
Yes, I know – when you work from home or are simply AT home, it seems to take an age for carpets to dry. It’s like watching paint dry. Only longer, because doesn’t paint dry within a couple of hours? Anyway, I digress…. Usually, carpets will be completely bone-dry within 24 hours, but often they are usably dry within 4-6 hours, depending on the type of fibers in your carpet and how absorbent they are (and how much ingrained dirt the technician had to work loose).
If you simply must traverse your carpeted expanse before they are dry, use plastic grocery bags tied to your feet to protect your newly-preened flooring. Just take care not to rush about and make sure to hold on to something – plastic on feet can be quite slippy! Bear in mind that if you walk on the carpets too soon after they’ve been cleaned, you can depress the carpet fibers so they dry kinky, much like laying on wet hair. Try to stick to the edges of the room where possible, as this can especially be an issue in heavy traffic areas that are already prone to bent carpet fibers.
Your carpet cleaning specialist will also be able to give you a more accurate assessment of your grocery-bag-gliding timescale after the service.
