How Quickly Will Your Carpeting Will Dry ?

This is probably the most frequently asked question apart from price.  There are a number of variables that come into play here and they all have to do with your the techniques and care that your carpet cleaner provide both during and after the carpet cleaning

The first factor affecting the dry time of your carpeting is the equipment.  Is your carpet cleaner using enough suction or vacuum power to extract the water back out of the carpet after it has been cleaned.  A typical Rug Doctor carpet cleaning machine has 80cfm. (cubic feet per minute) of suction, a high end portable may have up to 200 cfm.  At Enviro-Green Carpet Cleaning, our truck-mount has 520 cfm., ensuring that we are recovering the maximum allowable amount of water to ensure your carpets are drier quicker.

The second factor affecting the dry time of your carpeting is air flow.  Increasing the surface airflow over the carpeting will increase the absorption rate of the moisture off of the carpeting and into the air.   At Enviro-Green Carpet Cleaning we do this by placing powerful fans in a room as it is cleaned.  This increases airflow and dry times for our customers.

Another factor that affects the dry time of the carpeting is humidity.  During the summer months unfortunately the humidity is higher and dry times tend to take slightly longer.  We ask homeowners during this time of the year to leave their air-conditioners on as they remove excess humidity from the air that is in the home.  Between the fans that are used By Enviro-Green Carpet Cleaning in conjunction with the dehumidifying effect of the air conditioning, we leave your carpeting with a quicker dry time than that of our competitors.

The last factor affecting dry times of carpeting is temperature.  We ask homeowners to set their thermostats between 66-70 degrees to promote evaporation of the small amount of moisture in the carpeting to the air.

At Enviro-Green Carpet Cleaning we employ every method possible to ensure that your home and clean carpeting are usable as quickly as possible.  We believe in giving you the best carpet cleaning experience you have ever had.  We are a family owned and operated business and are a IICRC (Institute of Inpection Cleaning and Restoration Certification)  certified firm.  We are fully licensed and insured and are a Carpet & Rug Institute Preferred Service Provider.   Call us today and see how different we really are!
