Tips to Speed Carpet Drying

This article was originally published in ICS.

The carpet cleaning season has finally arrived. And as most carpet cleaning technicians know, one of the most frequently asked questions about carpet cleaning right after it’s done is "How long will it take for the carpets to dry?"

Suggestions to help reduce carpet drying times include:
  • Technicians should carry an assortment of air movers with them, including blowers, down draft systems, "whole room" dryers, stackable dryers, "kickstand" dryers, and angle adjustable fans.
  • Proper wand technique is imperative - perform extra dry passes while "wanding," and be sure to overlap just-cleaned areas.
  • Pull the wand back an extra few inches after closing off the solution flow; this will pick up any excess water left at the end of the wand stroke.
  • Install air movers in each room as it is completed; move and add fans to each room as they are cleaned.
  • Activate ceiling fans if present in the facility.
