How Soon Can You Walk on Carpet After Cleaning?

Carpets need more than a good vacuuming. Any house that has carpets occasionally needs professional Kirkland Carpet Cleaning. After all, your floors are an investment! We want you to be able to enjoy your investment as long as possible. To do this, we recommend maintaining your carpets once every six months to once a year, depending on how many people and pets you have walking on your carpets. 

This sounds great, but in reality you may worry this will be inconvenient. After all, you can’t put your life on hold once or twice a year and have your floors be off limits. You still have a life to live! Will you need to leave your house? Will it make you sick if you breathe it in? Will you need to board your pets? How soon can you walk on carpet after cleaning? Don’t worry! Here at Green Steam Carpet Cleaners, we’re here to answer all of these questions and more.

How Soon Can You Walk on Carpet After Cleaning?

Thankfully, this Kirkland carpet cleaning service is not going to disrupt your life nearly as badly as you may be fearing. In fact, you are allowed to lightly walk on damp carpets with bare feet or socks immediately. Walk with extreme caution and only if you need to, as your floors may be a bit slippery. The industry standard for dry time is four to eight hours, and never longer than 24 hours. However, we do not recommend wearing street shoes or letting pets walk on them until they are completely dry.

Please remember that not all stains, spots, and odors are guaranteed to be removed due to the depth of contamination. Also, for several days after cleaning you may notice an elevated odor due to higher humidity levels. That’s normal and nothing to be concerned with. One more post-cleaning care instruction is that we ask you please leave your plastic “tabs” and “blocks” under your furniture for 48 hours after cleaning.

Don’t forget your rugs! Depending on a room’s layout and furniture placement, your rugs can be exposed to just as much heavy foot traffic as the carpet itself, leaving them work and dingy looking. We are able to clean your rugs while we are in your home performing the carpet cleaning. Our trained and certified technicians are experts when it comes to determining the cleaning methods best suited to your rug’s particular weave, fibers, and dyes. We use the most advanced processes available today to thoroughly clean your rugs and remove any dirt, stains, or odors.
