Most people ask about the drying time of carpets when they hire a professional cleaner. The question of price is not the only one that people ask. Many people have heard horror stories of carpets that are left damp after cheap cleaning. It is most likely due to the wrong method, as a carpet that has been cleaned properly should be dry in a single day. Helpful hints!
Be aware that the time required will vary depending on the type of carpet and its condition. The time will be longer for some carpets due to their different textures or fibers. A wool carpet will absorb more moisture than a synthetic carpet. Polypropylene (a synthetic material) absorbs little to no water, so it appears wet for a longer period of time.
The quantity of soil will also affect the drying time. The soil will need more work and liquid if the surface is very dirty.
Also, the humidity in the space and its temperature should be considered. Drying could be significantly slower in cold or humid weather. Evaporation slows down because air flow is reduced. It is because the air has more moisture than usual, which makes it slower and less able to absorb water. Air that is warm, however, evaporates faster. Hair dryers that use hot air dry out your hair more quickly than those with a cool setting. Since we are talking about hair, it is also true that hair with longer lengths will dry longer. A shaggy rug will also take more time to dry out than a short one.
It is also important to consider the techniques used in order for carpets to dry quicker. It depends on how you clean. Some companies use carpet cleaning methods that require low water content, such as encapsulation. The drying time will be shorter because less water was used. The encapsulation process is not effective for heavily stained carpets. Sanitation issues such as vomit, pet accidents and urine are important to take into consideration. Incorrect equipment can affect the drying time of carpets. The cost of deep cleaning carpet machines is much higher than that of regular machines, so do not expect high quality from cheap services. AJS Carpet Cleaning South Jordan for instance, has truck mounted engines ten-times more powerful than the machines that can be rented.
