How wet does the carpet get after cleaning?

After using the Rug Doctor machine the carpet takes about 4 hours to dry, in which time I would not suggest putting any furniture back on the carpet, so that any residual water does not get trapped in the carpet or underlay.

The machine vacuums up about 80% of the water it dispenses on to the carpet. If you want the carpet to dry a bit quicker I would suggest going over the carpet once more not holding the red spray button allowing the vacuum to soak up more water.

Whilst the carpet is drying I would also suggest ventilating the property for a few hours if possible.
