Our equipment is specifically designed to recover virtually all of the moisture used. We use an industry leading gasoline engine powered truckmount (20 horsepower), that has a large blower flowing over 320 cfm, large recovery hoses, and a state of the art titanium carpet wand that is specifically designed for water recovery. Humidity, air flow, and certain other conditions have an impact overall, but you can expect dry times of 4-6 hours. The moisture is applied at approximately 450 psi, which is ideal for cleaning carpet fibers, but not so vigorous as to penetrate beneath the backing. As such, the padding and subfloor stays dry.
