ServiceMaster of Rochester. Carpets are what make your home or office welcoming, cozy, and comfortable. In order for them to maintain these three attributes, they must be cared for and cleaned appropriately. Follow a few simple steps to help prepare for the carpet cleaning process:
- Vacuum thoroughly. Unless you vacuum every day, there’s a big chance your carpets should be vacuumed before the cleaning service arrives to remove debris and items such as pet hair.
- Move furniture. Unless you’re unable to assist, moving furniture prior to the cleaning service arriving will be beneficial so they can get right to work with the carpet cleaning process.
- Move or stabilize fragile and breakable items. Often glass vases, picture frames, and other fragile or breakable items are on display on the mantle, coffee table, or elsewhere around the room. Because the carpet cleaning professionals will be moving about with heavy equipment, move or stabilize any breakable items prior to their arrival to avoid them being knocked off and broken.
- Make a note of areas of concern. All carpets have areas of concern that need a little extra TLC, such as high-traffic areas, a spot where red wine was spilled, or where your pet decided to mark its territory. Make a note of such areas and inform the professional carpet cleaning service so they can spend a bit of extra time where needed.
- Know the location of your water spigots, sinks, and drains. When carpets are deep cleaned, the cleaning professionals may need to add or extract water. Be mindful of where your water spigots, sinks, and drains are located to make the cleaning process easier.
