How Long Will My Carpet Take To Dry?
This depends on weather conditions (humidity levels, airflow and the type of carpet we are working on). While it typically takes 8-12 hours it may take up to 48 hours for the carpet to dry, you can walk on it as soon as we are finished. Wear clean tennis shoes or white socks to avoid re-soiling. If drying time is a concern, please ask us about ways to significantly speed up the drying time.
Can You Guarantee Getting Out All Of The Stains?
We would love to say 100% yes, however the answer is no. There are many factors involved if a specific stain can be removed. A few of these factors are the nature of the stain, the type of carpet fiber, how long the stain has been there and what, if anything, was previously used to get the stain out.
