How long will it take for my carpet and upholstery to dry?

It depends on a few factors. Most carpet will be dry in 4-6 hours, but very dense carpets may take longer. The time of year also affects dry times. Winter is the fastest season for drying because of the low humidity created by your home furnace. Regardless of the time of year, your carpet should be ready to use in less than 12 hours. Upholstery will usually be ready to use about 4-6 hours after cleaning, sometimes sooner.
