When you think of wet carpet you typically think you need to stay off! You arrive home and your partner yells STOP WET CARPET!! For the most part that is correct but what you would be surprised is you can walk on the carpet if you need to. We just suggest the person walking on the surface has clean socks or booties over their shoes. The machine actually removes 85% of the moisture and air flow is your best friend. Carpets should be dry within 4 hours, if you have fans blowing Carpets will dry much faster. A misconception is the air should be hot, that's not true. Air just needs to flow, ideally most families have a portable standing fan or most rooms have ceiling mounted fans. So next time they yell STOP! You'll know exactly what to do.
