When you wash the carpets by self all that you should do is to use your own hair dry cleaner to dry it as they would be very thick and hence you could not dry them like you dry the normal clothes. Even to squeeze them in the washing machine, they would be too big to do so. Hence it is recommended that you do hang them on the corridor walls of the house. But, it is possible that the corridor is being seen towards the outside of the house and the water marks that are formed on the corridor walls would also become quite visible at a later point of time. Once you get the house painted, again it would not be wise to do the same mistake of cleaning the carpet by self and then drying it in the most inappropriate way.
How about availing the www.likenewcarpetcare.com services that would ensure that they use the best equipment for drying the carpets. The hair driers that you have would only dry your own hair but could never dry the carpets. Hence, the high pressure of air would be required to make the carpet dry immediately. Hence, it is suggested that you do not miss to clean the carpets just because you could not clean them. You could rather think of the best way of cleaning the carpets and still use them at your house.
More over the other question that might be troubling you is whether you would be disturbing your neighbors because of the work that is being done at your house for cleaning the carpets. Definitely, you would not be disturbing them but would be enlightening them as to what they should do when they want the carpet cleaning services.
