Two to eight hours with the steam cleaning method of carpet cleaning (recommended). One hour with the encapsulation method.
With either method you will be able to walk on the carpet immediately after being cleaned although it will still be a little damp. Using a heater, dehumidifier or opening nearby windows and doors will speed up the drying process.
Usually, in a good weather it takes 12 hours for carpets to come to a complete dry. In bad weather it might take a little longer.
Fully opened windows will help carpets to dry. Please don’t forget to leave as much windows open as it is possible in both good and not that good weather.
If you are moving out and want end of tenancy clean as well as Carpet Steam Clean please make sure that you home is empty and nothing lest on the floors.
