Our carpets, one long shag, the other short textured, were both dry in under 4 hours. Our furniture was dry in 2 hours upstairs and 8 hours in basement (where it is very humid). How many times you go over the wet surface with the suction on probably plays a big part in how long it takes to dry. We went back once and forward once while spraying water/cleaner on, then back and forth 3 times with just suction over all areas.

More that a day...and leaves soap residue....even when I used half of the cleaning solution suggested by Bissell.

The complete carpet drying will of course be determined by the temperature in your residence. But, the machine will virtually suck up all of the water that you've put down. So, realistically, you could expect it to be dry within four hours, I'd say. However, if used properly, you could move your furniture back in place immediately. This is really a great machine, as far as machines go.

Usually within a few hours but it does depend on how many times you go over the area wetting it. On really tough areas where I've had to go over it many times, it's dry by the end of the day.

The carpet was dry within two hours! The machine really has a lot of suction to remove dirt and water.
Hi Schicky, great question. The drying time can vary depending on the environment, how much water is put down and how many passes are made to suction up the water. This unit has our strongest suction power so you should see shorter drying times.
