What is the average time it takes to clean carpet?

How long does carpet cleaning take? It can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 3 days. It depends on the size and condition of the carpet, as well as any obstructions (desks or chairs) that may be in the way. The service time should also include drying time for carpets.

Here’s the long answer

There are many factors that will influence the time taken to clean the carpet and the drying time.

Area to be cleaned The rule of thumb for carpet cleaning is that it takes 20 minutes for small rooms (bedrooms and hallways) and 30 minutes for larger rooms (master bedrooms, living room, etc.). This is a guideline and should not be relied upon. Carpet cleaning will take longer if the carpet is stained, heavily soiled or hasn’t been cleaned in a while. Each carpet cleaning run takes longer to dry.

Carpet condition As mentioned, heavy soiling, grease, or stains that are difficult to remove can take a lot more time for carpet cleaning. A more heavily soiled carpet will need a more thorough cleaning, which may include pre-spray and possibly even special machine agitation. You may need to add another 10-15 minutes for each room.

What is the carpet made of? – Natural fibers take a longer time to dry than synthetic fibers and require a different treatment. Natural fibers are more delicate. They are also less prone to stains and grease than synthetic fibers. Natural fibers such as wool require more regular cleaning and a stricter maintenance schedule to maintain their beauty.

Other solutions – It depends on the condition of the carpets and the requirements of the customer. You may need to pre-spray the carpets before cleaning or apply a protector after cleaning. Each step adds more liquid to the carpet and causes more moisture to dry. These steps can take up to half an hour and can prolong the drying time by at least two hours.
