Many homeowners just prefer carpet over other popular flooring materials, which are fine as long as they are well taken care of. Having yourats carpets cleaned by a professional will make them look and smell amazing. Here are a few things you can do to prepare for the arrival of your professional carpet cleaner.
Clear the carpeted area as much as possible. Pick up items such as floor lamps, plants and other small things that are covering the areas that need to be cleaned. It is also a good idea to vacuum your carpets before they arrive.
Inspect your carpets well. The carpet cleaner will likely do an inspection of your carpets but it is a good idea to do your own inspection as well. Take note of any stains so you can show them to the carpet cleaner.
Let your carpet cleaner know about any pets you have. It is important that you keep your pets off of the carpeted area while they are being cleaned and until they are dry. If you do not have an area where your pets can stay while the technician is there, consider asking a friend or family member to take them for you until your carpets are cleaned.
Make room in your driveway. Generally, carpet cleaners use trucks equipped with hot water extraction machines. Providing them with adequate space to park in your driveway will allow them to park close to the entrance of your home.
Put all valuables and jewelry away. Although most professional carpet cleaners are honest, you can never be too safe when it comes to valuable items; especially if it is someone you do not know. This is mainly for your own peace of mind.
By following these tips, you are allowing the professionals more time to clean your carpets without having to worry about other things. It is important to remember to give the carpet cleaners plenty of space in order to provide a job well done. You are sure to enjoy all the benefits that come along with having extra clean carpets.
