How to Prepare for Professional Carpet Cleaning

How to Prepare for Professional Carpet Cleaning

05/10/2018

So, you’ve chosen to have your carpet professionally cleaned? Great news! Our carpet cleaning team will have your carpets looking beautiful in no time. Before we arrive, there are a few things you can do to help make our job easier.

Declutter and tidy

Do a quick tody up and get anything off the floor. If you have kids or pets, pick up any toys, beds, books or blankets and remove any breakables or bric-a-brac from the tops of furniture. Our insurance does not allow us to handle fragile or valuable items.

Move furniture out of the way

Carpet cleaning is a whole lot easier if you remove as much of your furniture as possible. Lighter items such as side tables, dining chairs and ottoman can all be moved from the areas we are cleaning. When it comes to heavier pieces of furniture, just ask our friendly carpet cleaning team to help. We are more than happy to help you move them.

Vacuum high traffic areas 

If you can, please vacuum high traffic areas including entranceways, hallways and commonly used paths between furniture. By starting with a cleaner surface, we can get to work right away.

Secure floor length curtains and drapes 

Make sure floor length draperies are hung up using hangers, rods or windowsills before we arrive. This will prevent the fabric from meeting damp carpets during the cleaning process.

Take note of any stains 

Go around your home and take note of any prominent carpet stains. If you can remember, let us know what caused them so we can use the best methods to get them out.

 Restrain your pets

Before we arrive, ensure that your pets are secured safely. Whether they are friendly or aggressive, pets will get in the way of our cleaners and hinder the carpet cleaning process. We also need to leave doors open to allow for hoses when we are cleaning and we don’t want Fido or Whiskers escaping.
