Carpet Cleaning

Some carpets dry faster than others. Synthetic Nylon, Polypropylene and Triexta carpets and also commercial carpet tiles are faster drying. This is attributed to the fiber type absorbing very little moisture if any at all.

Woolen carpets may take longer to dry since the protein fibers can absorb moisture during the cleaning and they also have the ability to hold more soils.

Drying conditions such as ventilation, temperature, mechanical drying systems can decrease or increase drying times.

The soil content in the carpets also influence drying as heaver soiled carpets may require more moisture to remove the soils.

Average drying times are between 2 Hours and a day. EcoSan can supply drying equipment to force dry the carpets if required.

Water soluble and solvent soluble soils are generally removed during general carpet cleaning methods and considered part of  the carpet cleaning process. Stains which require specialised methods may take additional time and chemistry and may not be included in general cleaning methods. EcoSan Solutions are very experienced stain removal specialists, if you have a stain you think may be permanent please let us know before booking so we can advise you accurately on your options.

EcoSan Solutions always aim to use the most environmentally sensitive chemistry available for the task. Our chemicals are biodegradable and we do not leave harmful residues in carpets we clean so it is safe for family and pets inside the home or office.

EcoSan solutions have a range of specialised odour control solutions. Woolen carpets have a distinct odour after cleaning the carpets the first time or two. We can add an odour digesting enzyme with a pleasant smell to assist with this.

If you have an existing odour issue such as pet urine, doggie smells or smoke odours, please let us know before booking as these may require additional solutions.
