There is nothing better than coming home to nice clean carpets. There are so many positives, such as cleanliness, bright colour, fewer germs and bugs, the feeling of doing something good for yourself. The list goes on.
A lot of people want to know, “how long after cleaning can I walk on my carpet?”. As nice as clean carpets are it would be horrible to discolour them right away.
We like clean carpet too and will always advise customers to stay off their new carpet for as long as possible. This can mean a lot of different things to different people, however.
Generally, six hours is the desired time before you, your pets and your friends can safely walk on the carpet again. If you must walk on it sooner, to get to another room or something similar, then wait at least half an hour. If you do walk on it sooner, take off any shoes and wear white socks to help prevent any chance of discolouration occurring.
To help your carpets dry faster, the room should be well ventilated. If you have ceiling fans, then it is a good idea to turn them on too.
We know customers often want to get back into their homes or freshly cleaned rooms as soon as possible, and in the end, it is up to you. Waiting six hours before walking on it if possible is considered the best advice.
