Many people think about what they should do to prepare for a carpet clean, but not many really think about what they should do after a carpet cleaning service has been done.
Make Sure the Carpet is Totally Dry
Both methods use wet pre-sprays to clean the carpet, so it stands to reason that both methods will have to be left for some time to dry.
What most customers do after a clean has been done is walk over the carpet straightaway. This is when the carpet is at its most vulnerable because dirty feet or shoes will quickly stain the carpet whilst it’s still damp.
Stay Off the Carpet
So the best thing to do after a carpet cleaning service has been done at your place is to stay of the carpet for the time that the technician has stated.
If a professional company is hired the carpets shouldn’t take too long to dry out. Here at Best 1, we do every method of carpet cleaning, including Dry Cleaning, Steam Cleaning and Low Moisture Cleaning. All of these methods we can have the carpet dry in under two hours.
The drying time does vary on the sort of pile the carpet has and the type of fibre it’s made from.
Woollen and thick pile carpets obviously take the longest to dry out but they should still be dry within a few hours.
You must also never put any furniture back onto the carpet after it has been cleaned until it is dry as this can cause mould to grow and even rot the carpet where heavy furniture sits.
Remember, if you stay of your carpets for just a few hours after they have been cleaned they will stay looking cleaner for longer between cleans and also last for many more years without having to replace them.
