How to Prepare Your Home For Professional Carpet Cleaning

How to Prepare Your Home For Professional Carpet CleaningIt’s that time of year again where you call your local carpet cleaner and ask to schedule an appointment to get your carpets back to like new conditions but before they come to your home, there are a few things you can do to prep your carpet and help expedite the cleaning process. Sometimes it can be stressful thinking about someone coming into your home to clean, and you aren’t quite sure what to do in preparation. Listed below is how to prepare your home for professional carpet cleaning without going overboard.

Discuss Ahead of Time

Every carpet cleaning company is going to run their business slightly different, so don’t be afraid to ask your local carpet cleaner just how to prepare for their arrival. Each company will carry different liability insurance, which means they may or may not be able to move certain pieces of furniture during the cleaning process. Make sure your cleaning company knows beforehand how many rooms and hallways will need to be cleaned and if you know of any tough stains that you would like them to focus on. If your carpet cleaning company knows ahead of time about stains, they can bring in special solutions and start with the stains first. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about our cleaning process and how long it will take for the entire process from start to finish. Also, the more we know about the status of your carpet, the better we can gage just how long it will take to get your carpets back to like-new conditions.

Prepare Your Home

There are a handful of things you can do to help your professional carpet cleaners before they arrive to your home to ensure you get the best carpet cleaning experience possible. Listed below are the key components to how to prepare your home for professional carpet cleaning:

  • Vacuum all rooms and hallways that will be cleaned
  • Move any breakables from tables and shelves
  • Move as much furniture as possible to a space that won’t be cleaned
  • Make sure there is as little as possible on the floor to maximize carpet cleaning
  • Tie-up floor length curtains so that they are not touching the floor
  • Leave pets outside or in a secure area so that the technicians do not have to worry about them getting loose or being upset by a stranger being in the home
  • If your carpets have known soiled spots from pets, make sure the area is cleared two feet around it so that the technician can work to get the entire area cleaned
