Getting your carpets professionally cleaned will help extend their lives and make them look good for longer periods of time. At the same time, it is a great way to make sure that the air in your house is super healthy and clean. Vacuuming every day is not enough to get rid of the dust mites and other debris and allergens that stick to the fibers of your carpets. This is why you need to hire a professional to deep cleanse your carpets at least once a year to keep them looking new.
But there are a few things that you need to do before your carpet cleaner arrives. Moving different pieces of furniture before your carpet cleaner arrives will allow the cleaner to move freely to reach different areas. This means that he or she will be able to finish the job faster and with better results.
Moving valuable items
Porcelain, fine China, glass, other collectibles and electronics should be removed and kept in a safe place before the cleaners arrive. The carpet cleaning company shouldn’t be held liable for the breakage or destruction of such items during the cleaning process. This is why you need to make sure that they are well kept in a safe place before the professional cleaners arrive.
Professional carpet cleaners use long hoses to clean different areas and reach the most difficult places. This means that everything that usually stays on the floor should be removed before the cleaners arrive. Boots, children toys and pet toys should be kept away from the way of the hoses to make the job easier and more efficient.
Remove light pieces of furniture
Carpet cleaners are not licensed to move pieces of furniture to clean your carpets. This means that you need to arrange the removal of all light pieces of furniture to allow your carpet cleaners to move freely. Make sure that floor lamps, coffee tables, chairs and plant stands are moved away because cleaning around them can be rather difficult. You should keep your furniture in a garage or in the attic before your carpet cleaners arrive to make sure that the area is clutter and furniture free.
Moving heavy pieces of furniture
Moving heavy pieces of furniture before the carpet cleaners arrive, is something that you should discuss before the actual cleaning process starts. As the cleaners come at the beginning to assess the cleaning process and how much it would cost, you can ask them about how many pieces of furniture need to be removed from the room.
Electronics and glass cabinets or other big pieces of furniture should be left to furniture moving professionals. The same applies for beds, wardrobes and other big items that you can’t move on your own. A carpet cleaner would willingly help you with removing chairs or tables but for bigger items you need to ask a furniture moving professional to do the job before the cleaning process starts.
