How to Prepare for a Professional Carpet Cleaning in Your Home

Before welcoming your carpet cleaners into your home, be sure the space is prepared to be clean. Follow these tips to be as prepared as possible.

Dust the Areas Around the Room Being Serviced

Before any carpet cleaning takes place, take some time to clean and dust the areas around the room being serviced. Although this won’t actually affect the cleaning process, doing this in advance will help maintain your freshly cleaned carpets at their best for longer.

Remove Large Furniture

If you want a wall to wall cleaning that leaves no spot of your carpet untouched then you will need to remove the furniture in the room. While smaller items shouldn’t be a problem, large, heavy items can be a bit tricky to move and store. Remove what you can, but be sure to double check the cleaning company’s policies. Some cleaners will not move any furniture under any circumstances while others may charge an extra fee to perform this service. Although it’s rare, some cleaners may even include this service in their standard charges. Before you move anything, do double check with the company before making any assumptions.

Pick up Small Items

Small items that may clutter up a room should be removed before the cleaners arrive. Items such as floor lamps, shoes, cables, and toys should be picked up and put away elsewhere during the time of the cleaning. These small items may get in the way of your carpet being cleaned thoroughly and can even create a tripping hazard for your cleaners. Remember to lift or pin long drapes, bedding, and any other item that skims or falls on the surface of your carpet.

Vacuum the Carpet

Before your cleaners start treating your carpet with their equipment, your carpet will need to be vacuumed. Although this may seem unnecessary because your carpet is about to undergo a much more thorough cleaning process, this is actually very necessary. Giving your carpet a vacuuming before cleaning will help remove dirt and debris that is on the surface of the carpet. Some cleaning services include this in their process while others will rely on you to get it done before the cleaning. Double check with your cleaners in order to be ready for their arrival.If you want your carpet to look like new for your holiday get-togethers, contact Fairbanks Cleanpro for the best carpet cleaning service in Fairbanks.

Identify Areas That Need Extra Attention

As you remove furniture and other items from the carpet, be sure to pay extra attention to its condition. You are likely to notice that some areas look more worn than others or are more prone to stains. Make a note of these areas and point them out to the cleaners when they arrive. This will help ensure these areas get more attention and are properly treated. Use your cleaner’s experience and knowledge to your advantage by asking them for tips on how to maintain these areas in between cleanings.

Keep Your Pets in Mind

If you share your home with some furry friends, make the proper accommodations to keep them happy and safe during a cleaning. If your pets are easily scared, they may be better off staying at someone else’s house while your carpets are cleaned. Large equipment, loud noises, and strange people in your home may cause them some discomfort, not to mention exterior doors may be kept open during the cleaning. If you choose to keep your pets at home during the cleaning, be sure to keep them away from the area being cleaned. Even if they have the best intentions, they may get in the way of the cleaners performing their job.

Leave Space in Your Driveway for the Cleaners

When scheduling your cleaning, be sure to ask about leaving a parking space for your cleaners. Some cleaning services run hoses and other items from their car to the room being cleaned. This means they will need a parking space that is close to an entryway. In most cases, the ideal parking space is in the driveway. If this is the case, be sure to leave an open spot for them to park in that will facilitate their work.
