The carpets are not only slightly damp at touch right after cleaning. However, on average they take about 6 hours to dry. The drying process depends on several factors though:
- Carpet Cleaning Method: Professional carpet cleaners offer two types of carpet cleaning: wet and dry, where each of them takes a different time to dry. Dry carpet cleaning takes minimum drying time, i.e. 30 minutes to 2 hours, whereas wet carpet cleaning can take up to 12 hours.
- Humidity: If the humidity is more, the carpet will take more time to dry.
- Temperature: Higher the temperature of the place, the faster the carpets will dry.
- Extra Resources: You can use a fan, dehumidifier, air conditioning, or just open windows, to decrease the drying time of the carpets.
