Q. How long will the carpet take to dry?
A. Carpet drying times may vary from four hours under ideal conditions to as much as 48 hours in extremely cold or humid conditions. If good drying conditions exist in your home or business premises, a carpet that is cleaned in the morning will usually be dry by the evening. Low humidity, air circulation and warm temperatures will all reduce dry times. If dry times are critical for your situation, we can force dry your carpet through the use of professional drying equipment. Alternatively, where appropriate we can use a low moisture method of carpet cleaning.
Q. Do we need to move the furniture?
A. Where possible, move furniture to an area that will not be cleaned. It may be impractical to move some larger items out of the room. One option is to clean the carpet around these items. Alternatively, where appropriate, we may be able to slide the furniture to one side, clean underneath and slide it back. In this case we will need to place plastic tabs underneath the furniture feet to protect the carpet. If you need assistance moving furniture, we are happy to help. Please advise us in advance as additional time or manpower may be required.
