Its summer again and as we all know we are looking at high temperatures and high humidity. Because of these two reasons some customers tend to wait till the weather cools and the humidity is lower to do their carpet cleaning. We can help with this. First we use a very large truck-mounted steam cleaning system. So we have the power to extract all the excess water during cleaning leaving only a slight amount of moisture behind. Because of this we easily dry your carpet even in the hot humid St. Louis summers.
Running your Hvac can help your carpet dry quicker
Another thing that helps quite a bit is running your air conditioner before, during, and after the cleaning. The air conditioner acts as a dehumidifier and will actually pull moisture from the air while running. The drier the air is in a house or business the quicker the carpet will dry after being cleaned.
Another thing to take into consideration is the experience of the technician performing the cleaning. A experienced tech will know in advance what the humidity is. Because of this they will relay that info to you during the cleaning. With that information you will be prepared and can do everything possible to help the carpet dry quickly. All of our technicians are very experienced and certified, since customer service is the main focus of our company we will help in this area as much as possible. A inexperienced tech may just do the same thing in every home regardless of the season and humidity levels. This can cause your carpet to stay wet for days.
The same thing applies to a rainy day, when it rains for a long period of time the humidity will get very high and can take a good amount of time to drop back to a regular level. If you have any questions related to drying your carpet contact us and we will help as much as possible. Every house should have a hygrometer and a dehumidifier so you can control your indoor environment the best you can. A hygrometer will let you know the relative humidity and a dehumidifier in your basement will help keep the moisture levels within reason. Most of the year you should not need to run the dehumidifier but if the humidity is about 50% running the dehumidifier will help quite a bit.
