How long does it take for carpet to dry after steam cleaning?

Steam cleaning can take anywhere from 8 to 24 hours to completely dry. However, it only takes 4 to 8 hours to dry when carpets are cleaned without the use of traditional steam cleaning methods that use large amounts of water due to their reliance on soaps and shampoos. Modern cleaning solutions reduce drying time because they do not need to soak carpets, such as Zr™ Water, a patented cleaning solution that harnesses the cleaning power of electrolyzed and oxidized water. Zerorez® Nashville is the only Nashville carpet cleaning company that uses Zr™ Water and has achieved the platinum certification by the Carpet and Rug Institute, the industry's highest possible cleaning rating. With Zerorez Nashville, carpets will dry in 4 to 8 hours and stay cleaner, longer.

In addition to our patented cleaning process that reduces carpet soaking, our technicians take extra steps to reduce drying time such as pretreating the carpet before cleaning, using less water, and additional vacuuming time to remove excess moisture. And after our technicians leave, we recommend that our customers keep the windows closed, the fans running, and the AC off. Doing this helps ensure optimum drying time.
