The most common complaint when it comes to professional carpet cleaning is the wet carpet after the appointment.

Depending on the carpet cleaning Ellettsville service you choose, it can require several hours and sometimes an entire day for carpet to dry after the company leaves.

How long it takes for a carpet to dry after cleaning depends on several factors.

One factor is the weather and whether it is humid outdoors. Humid weather will extend the amount of time necessary for carpet to dry.

Another factor is the air circulation in a home. Carpet in a home without proper ventilation and air circulation will dry slower than a home with excellent ventilation and air circulation.

However, the number one factor is which type of carpet cleaning service you choose. There are several local companies that, including national steam cleaning services, that use excessive amounts of water during their process. Steam cleaning is one of the main culprits for using too many gallons of water to clean carpet.

The reason steam cleaners and other companies use so much water is because their carpet cleaning process uses soap to remove dirt, soil and contaminants. Then they need to attempt to rinse out all of the soap and that requires a lot of water.

The best way to reduce dry times for wet carpet and the amount of water your carpet is subjected to is to hire Chem-Dry of Bloomington. Our service uses 80% less water than steam cleaning and that’s because our process doesn’t use soap. Instead of soap, we use green-certified solutions and carbonation to lift dirt from carpet fibers.

The end result is drier, cleaner and healthier carpet in your home and the good news is that after an appointment with Chem-Dry of Bloomington, your carpet should be dry in only 1-2 hours. That’s fast!

Of course, there are ways to speed up the drying process even more. You can open the windows in your home and run floor and ceiling fans or turn on the air conditioner for better circulation.

You can also be diligent in preventing family and pets from entering the rooms we clean before the floor is dry. This will help the floor dry faster too!
