6 Effective Ways To Dry Carpets16 Dec
How do you wash your carpet? There are many ways to clean your carpet, and hot water extraction (steam cleaning) is one of the most efficient methods. It uses high-pressure water heated to extremely high temperatures to wash carpets. Typically, the carpet should take 6 to 12 hours to dry after cleaning. However, it is also affected by humidity, air temperature, and air circulation.
And one thing we should keep in mind is that we can walk across the carpet only the carpet is completely dry. Because damp carpets are easy to leave the stain if you walk through the carpet before it is completely dry, some dirt and compressed pile may stay on the carpet. So, if you need to walk on a wet carpet, make sure you take off your shoes and walk along the edge of the carpet.
