00:55 So many times people have neglected their carpet and it ends up being somewhere that’s you’re afraid to put a baby down on, or it’s afraid to sit down or lay down on her. You just know it doesn’t have that nice flush, fluffy, fresh feel that it should have a normally carpet stretching tulsa. Since 1998. We are complete carpet and today we’re gonna. Be talking about, uh, the dry times and what I would go into that. What is it that helps your carpets to dry? One of the things that makes a big difference on your dry time is the density and the thickness of your carpet. Very dense, piled short, leveled carpet dries faster and easier than really long, loose a fluffy carpet just because there’s more fiber and we always tell our customers that it is similar to the dry times between a bath towel and a beach towel.

01:44 These styles typically really thin and sparse on fibers. It dries really quick because there’s not a lot to hold moisture, whereas a nice big fluffy bath towel is designed more to absorb a larger amount and so it will take a longer time to dry. You take a bath towel, he throw on the floor and don’t hang it up to dry and it can take an extremely long time to dry. Um, as far as temperature, which I tell most customers, it’s the carpet going to dry the same day that we clean it. And so just leave your temperatures at the same settings that they normally are. You can and some extreme circumstances. We’ve that a few times where someone needs to move in right away and so we’ll crank the heat up and turn the fans on and get it to dry quickly for them. But do you now have a lot or really hot house that unless it’s really cold outside where you can just open the windows and the doors to drop the temperature back down.

02:35 You now are fighting a battle of trying to cool the house back down until you’re spending a lot of electricity for something that’s just kind of happened on its own anyway. Um, AC dries the air out because you’ve got more moist, warm air hitting cold coils and that will, that condensation. We’ll remove all of them oyster out of the air the way that a dehumidifier works. Um, heat also dries out the air because it’s evaporating it through the heat as he goes through and hits the flames. Carpet Stretching Tulsa He didn’t have air for your natural gas systems. They will dry out the air also. So either way will work. I’ll be your biggest thing that would help for most people is just to flip your heat and air the fan on that from auto to keep air circulating throughout the house. You can also put forced air on say ceiling band or box.

03:19 Then on areas it’s typical house is going to dry in five or six hours on a regular day. Um, he puts some forced air across it. You can get it to dry and under an hour just to think of it like a, you’ve done your hair and so you’ve taken a shower and either you’ve got it just driving. Normally he does. He just walk around and just air dry or you can take a blow dryer and dry it and five minutes. I’m of the same thing with your hands. If you go to a restroom, a lot of these new restrooms have the little forced air drying to go wash your hands. It’s going to shake them off and let them, it would dry over time or you can put underneath a blow dryer that just given that forced air and uh, it just kind of push all that era, all that water right off your hands and get them to dry off quicker.

04:02 A Carpet Stretching Tulsa since 1998. One of the other parts that is important from the, from our side on the equipment that we run, is that we need to make sure that our filters are always clean so that we are able to extract the most amount of water out of your carpets. You have a filter that starts to get a layer of dust and debris or more likely pet hair or pet our carpet fibers that get in there and start to kind of create a small blanket inside the filter. Eventually will reduce the suction power of our machine down, uh, to where it’s not able to lift and pull out as much of the water. We always wanted to have it running at maximum capacity. That’s why we check our filters every job and clean them completely every day so that every job is at the maximum suction capacity.

04:44 This is a good tip. Also, Carpet Stretching Tulsa since 1998 for you to check your vacuum on a regular basis. Uh, your vacuum has both the cylinder full of dirt that you need to either as a bag or it’s got the little a cyclonic cylinder. You need to take a dump that out, um, for each, uh, I, I personally would say do it for every time you vacuum because there is no reason to just use that as a small wastebasket. And also is a breeding ground for germs and dirt and stuff. It starts to stink after a while because you’ve. Everything you vacuumed up is just sitting there, a little container. Grab that, dump that out each time you vacuum so that you have a nice fresh, it allows more air to flow through and goes faster, but there is a secondary filter to carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998 that I’ve seen this so many times where there’s that secondary filter that’s sitting there on the top.

05:30 It’s a little foam disk filter and that filter does not get cleaned as often as it should and if that filters the air that keeps the air from spitting out debris into the house. If that filter is not cleaned on a regular basis, then they can I get the air out of the vacuum. They can’t get it into the vacuum to be able to get it out of the vacuum, so that needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. Carpet Stretching Tulsa. Since 1998. We are complete carpet.
