If you own a carpet then the following question often comes in your mind. “How long does it take to dry after cleaning ?”. We’ve all hear stories from people about the cleaning companies who provide service at a cheap rate and they have cleaned an expensive carpet which has then taken several days to dry. At Five Star Tile & Carpet Clean, we aim that all carpet dries within 4-8 hours. Do you know why this takes so long and why is there such a variance in the time taken?
Each carpet has its own style and quality. The fact behind this broad drying time estimation is that every home is different, so is every situation. Drying time varies from carpets fabric to fabric. For instance, wool absorbs up to 30% of its weight in water, whereas polypropylene carpet doesn’t absorb any. As a result, the water stays on top of the surface so that the carpet feels damper for long.
Another reason that some carpets take longer to dry than others because it depends on the amount of soil in the carpet. If your carpet is heavily soiled or it’s been a long time since it washed by you, then it will need more cleaning solutions to be applied to break down the embedded soils. This will loose and extract them than compared to a carpet that has been regularly cleaned.
Temperature and humidity
Temperature and humidity also play an important role in determining how long your carpet will take to dry. If the environment is cold, it can take a longer for your carpet to dry. This is because the movement of heat and air cause moisture to evaporate faster than cold environments. Air that is humid doesn’t occur. Warm dry air means that your carpet will dry quicker, think of your clothes dryer or hair dryer. If it is set on high, it will dry your hair faster than on a low, cool setting. Moreover, a carpet with long fibers such as a shag will take longer to dry than a carpet with shorter fibers.
