A week is a long time for them to finish shedding. It usually only takes a couple hours at most. Could be a humidity problem. Try putting a small bowl with some water and moss near the heat on the days you're not going to be around when shedding is evident. That will help a bit with humidity.

What type of gecko is it? P. standingi likes it dryer, like the % humidity that you say is in your cage; however, P.m. grandis likes it more humid. Just spray a lot more water in the cage than you are spraying. When I notice mine are getting ready to shed, I spray them with alot of extra water to keep the humidity higher. Also, potted plants will help keep humidity up as well.

I have found in the past when I've purchased from a store, they always have a rough first shed, but they get better and better.

Hope this helps.
