How long will it take for my carpet to dry?
This is one of the most common questions we get asked. The answer depends on numerous factors, but can be summarized by saying 2-12 hours on average.
At Boss Systems, we use the most advanced carpet cleaning systems available. Our truck-mounted systems can get carpet drier than just about any other system on the market, which is because of the extremely powerful vacuum blower and our carpet cleaning technique – which uses a double “dry pass” to remove the more moisture than a single dry pass.
Beyond our equipment, drying times are affected by different carpet fibers drying at different speeds, each fiber varies in how much moisture they absorb. Another thing that affects dry time is the density of the carpet; for example, if your carpet is made of tightly spun yarn in a thickly woven cut pile, it will take longer to dry than the loosely spun yarn of your neighbors loop pile carpet.
Other factors are the weather conditions outside, interior air flow and temperature, and the amount of cleaning needed to remove different levels of soiling.
As you can see there is not a ‘one size fits-all’ answer for this question, but we do our best to ensure your carpet dries as quickly as possible.
