If you have a small wet carpet, the only thing you need to do is to remove it and hang the carpet outside, where there is a sun, until it get dry. But if you have a large carpet or a wall to wall carpet, you have to dry it where it is. And how you can dry your carpet, whether it is small or a wall to wall size of carpet, here are the ways you can do.
Quick dry – for you to dry your wet carpet you will need a dry towel and spread it on a wet surface of your carpet and let the towel absorb the water on your wet carpet. When the towel is wet through, you can squeeze the towels to remove the water on it, or if you have many towels in your home, you can just replace the wet towel with a dry towel to absorb the remaining water on your wet carpet. Just keep on doing the same thing until the carpet is dry.
Use Vacuum – you can use vacuum to remove the wetness of your carpet, but you can’t use an ordinary vacuum for a wet carpet. You have to use a vacuum that is made to absorb wetness. The usual vacuum that use in household is for dry cleaning only, and if you use it for your wet carpet, it can be damage or destroy your vacuum. Just use the vacuum that is made to absorb wet and not your usual household vacuum cleaner. Vacuum your wet carpet until there is no water to absorb, or until it gets dry. Check the tank of the vacuum cleaner, dump the water on the tank before it gets overflowed.
Let the moisture evaporate – you can let the moisture from your carpet evaporate by using a household fan, a ceiling fan or a hair dryer if you have it in your home. Just focus the hair dryer or a fan on the wet area of your carpet until it gets dry. You have to check if the underneath of your carpet is still wet because it may distort when soak in wet especially if the floor is made of wood.
Drying a wall to wall carpet – when drying a large size carpet, you need to move the furniture that is placed on the carpet. It is necessary to move the furniture right away so you can start drying your carpet. If you leave the furniture on your wet carpet, it can damage the furniture and also the flooring. Lift up the edges of your wet carpet and focus a fan on your carpet. You have to focus the fan on the carpet and on the flooring so it can dry both the carpet and the flooring. Also use the vacuum that allows the absorption water.
