Looking for average dry times once protector has been applied after cleaning and better ways to apply. Adding a water based protector puts alot of moisture back onto the carpet after cleaning, want to avoid solvents. I don't normally offer protector but want to start and looking for some guidance. I clean with a portable, have applied with a hydroforce but to reduce over applying am looking at mixing exact amounts for sqft in a pump up. To reduce the amount of liquid being applied thus reducing dry time I was thinking of increasing the concentrate of protector to water and applying thinner. To clarify I am not saying put less protector down, just less water with a higher amount of protector but spread accordingly to give same amount as if done with higher water dilution. Any advice?
