How To Prepare Your Home For A Professional Carpet Cleaning

To get the most out of your next professional carpet cleaning, it’s important to know how to prepare your home. The steps you take before the carpet cleaning technicians arrive can make a big difference.

To ensure a deep clean, follow these steps: 

Remove Obstacles

Do a quick walk-through of the carpeted areas that will be cleaned to lift draperies up off the floor, put away toys, remove decorative baskets, remove lightweight furniture, and tidy up any floor clutter.

Put Away Delicate Items

If you have anything that could easily fall over or break if nudged by cleaning equipment, it’s best to remove the item before cleaning begins. 

Make A List of Stains and Spills

Walk through your home with your cleaning technician and point out specific stains that need to be addressed. Your technician will discuss the available options for treating the stain.

Secure Pets

Select a safe place to keep pets during a deep clean. It will help the technicians provide the best service possible and help to keep the area as clean as possible while carpeting is drying.

Create An “After Cleaning Plan” For Your Carpeting

Consider implementing some best practices to help keep your carpeting as clean as possible before your next cleaning. Some ideas include doormats on both sides of entryways, a “no shoe zone” inside the house policy, and a weekly vacuuming routine.

Before the cleaning begins, it’s always a good idea to ask your carpet cleaner if there are any preparations they would like you to make. Depending on the process and the equipment they use, they may have some helpful tips to share! Are you ready for a fall deep clean? Book your appointment with us by calling (727) 364-5158.
