5 Essential Steps to Prepare Your Home for Carpet Cleaning, Valley, Alabama

The beauty of hiring a carpet cleaning service is that you’ll have clean floors without doing the dirty work yourself. To make sure you get the best results, there are a few things you can do before the carpet cleaner arrives. The following preparations will help them work more efficiently and clean your carpet as well as possible.

5 Essential Carpet Cleaning Preparations

carpet cleaning1. Vacuum if Needed

Some carpet cleaning services will vacuum before beginning their work, but others require you to do so. Removing as much dirt and debris as possible lets the carpet cleaner focus on deeply embedded dirt and stains. Ask your carpet cleaning service whether they require you to vacuum before they arrive.

2. Clean Baseboards & HVAC Registers

Dust, dirt, and debris build up along baseboards and HVAC registers, especially since these areas are often overlooked in your normal cleaning routine. While not cleaning baseboards and HVAC registers won’t inhibit your carpet cleaner in any way, it will help your carpet stay clean for much longer.

3. Remove Fragile & Valuable Items

Floor lamps, plants, breakable objects, and any valuables should be removed from the areas that will be cleaned. This will remove the possibility of any expensive accidents during the carpet cleaning process. Store any valuables behind a locked door or in the trunk of your car.

4. Move Furniture

Most carpet cleaning services will move large items out of the way, like beds, sofas, and tables, but won’t touch fragile items like china cabinets or entertainment units. Ask your carpet cleaner if they will move the furniture.

5. Point Out Areas of Concern

Point out dirty spots and stains so your carpet cleaner doesn’t miss them. Also, show them where your home gets the most traffic so they can focus on those areas specifically.
