Many homeowners live in a world of blissful unawareness about how to look after their carpets and various myths abound. Some people can be afraid of getting their carpet cleaned, worrying about the length of time it will take to dry. Modern carpet fibres dry quickly and, providing the carpet’s not heavily saturated (which a professional cleaning company won’t do), the moisture will wick away quickly into the atmosphere. Drying time after cleaning shouldn’t take more than 12-24 hours, depending on the size of the area cleaned and room temperature. Professional cleaning won’t make a carpet shrink either, since professional equipment doesn’t saturate it to the extent where the fibres or backing material become compromised, causing irreversible changes.
