How long it takes for the carpet to dry after steam cleaning?

It was taking quite a time for the carpet to dry completely after steam carpet cleaning two or three decades ago. Usually, people had to wait between 8 up to 24 hours depending on several factors like:

  • Air humidity
  • Experience of the carpet cleaners
  • The level of dirtiness
  • Whether there are stains on the carpet or not

Fortunately, today the modern techniques used in the cleaning process significantly reduced that time. They no longer soak the carpet heavily in order to clean it. If the traditional steam carpet cleaning method is not used, the time for drying may be reduced to 4 – 8 hours. The reason for the longer drying period is the larger amount of water used when more shampoos or soaps are used.

Mvir Cleaning company is one of the reputable steam carpet cleaners serving London and the surroundings that apply the latest technology and products. They use only eco-friendly cleaning solutions that do not require too much time for evaporation. The carpet will be ready for use in approximately 4 to 6 hours after the cleaning experts leave.

They use industrial strength extraction machines that remove the excess moisture and reduce the drying time. The carpet cleaners would usually advise you to open the windows in the room to let the air circulate freely. If the air humidity is too high, you may need to turn on the AC or a fan near the carpet to accelerate its drying.

In order to reduce the drying time, you need to maintain your carpet regularly and to clean it often. Obviously, if it is heavily soiled, it will take longer to dry just because more water will be used for its cleaning.
