Well, let me guess. Now is the time you walk across those fresh and clean carpets after technician left. You probably would kick him out early so you can entertain your neighbors! But first you wonder what’s next?
- We suggest that you wait until the carpeting is completely dry prior to replacing any other furniture and items back onto the carpeting. This will prevent stains and possible damage to either carpet & or furniture.
- Turn up the heating system for a faster drying in cold weather. Ideally 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Use ceiling fans and floor fans to move air.
- Never place towels, sheets, mats or paper directly onto damp carpeting as this can cause staining, discoloration, and malodors by slowing down the drying process by inhibiting the free flow of air across the surface of the carpet that is vital for the drying process.
- The drying time is typically from 4-6 hours under ideal conditions, sometimes less & in some instances, can take up to 24 hours depending upon the length & density of the pile, temperature, humidity and amount of airflow
YOUR CARPETING IS DAMP.
Please exercise extreme caution when walking on damp carpet, especially when stepping off onto wood or tile floor.
We strongly recommend that you place a towel or mat onto the wood or tile flooring that meets damp carpet, use the towel or mat as a step off so that you can wipe your feet before proceeding further. This helps prevent slips, falls and possible injuries.
