Preparing Your Home for Carpet Cleaning Services

There are many things that you can do to make things easier and stress free for both you and your carpet cleaning technician. Carpet Cleaning companies will usually let you know what you need to do during the estimate and what they will do at the appointment. Here are some great things to consider when you are preparing for your appointment.

Vacuuming Before Hand

It is always a good idea to vacuum your home before the carpet cleaners arrive. Taking the time to get rid of surface dust and debris enables the cleaning technicians to focus on getting out the soils and dirt from deep within the carpet. Include area rugs, HVAC registers, and baseboards to keep dirt and dust from falling onto your newly cleaned carpets afterwards.

Keep Fragile and Valuables Safe

Remove any objects that are fragile or have value in the areas that you will be getting cleaned. Professional carpet cleaners should have insurance if something should break, but give yourself piece of mind and take away any stress the technician may feel by eliminating the chance of anything breaking. If you have valuables, make sure to put those items in a secure place until after the carpet cleaning process is finished.

Keep Inquisitive Ones at Bay

Pets and children are inquisitive creatures, but the noise that carpet cleaning can create may scare them. Make sure that your pets are safely kenneled since many carpet cleaning companies need to leave a door open for their equipment. Children should also be kept in areas that they will not be in the way or be startled by the equipment.

To Move or Not to Move

Moving your furniture is not always required by carpet cleaning companies, so make sure to ask to see if this service is included in your quote. Moving smaller items such as lamps, baskets, clothing, and toys will allow carpet cleaners to spend the time cleaning instead of moving your belongings. If you have an area that you can quickly move larger furniture to, take the extra time to do so. Your carpet cleaning technician will thank you!

Pinning Up Fabrics

Making sure that items like drapes, bedding, and table clothes are pinned up will make things easier for the cleaner. You can use clothes pins to simply pin the longer fabrics up so that they will not get caught in the equipment.

Take Note of Stains

Before your carpet cleaner arrives, do a walk through of your home and write down any stains that you have additional concerns about. When your technician arrives, walk through the house with them and point out these stains so that they can pay extra attention to them.

Rock Star Parking

Finally, before your carpet cleaning company arrives for their appointment, make sure that you have made room for them on your driveway. Carpet cleaning companies have a great deal of heavy equipment they use to make your carpets clean and renewed. When you give them the space to make carrying their gear into your home easier, they will appreciate the gesture.

Tip 2: Carpet Fibers

Wool, nylon, polyester, polypropylene and trixeta are some of the different carpet fiber types. Wool carpets are the most durable, soft and expensive type; nylon and trixeta are stain resistant and so perfect for family homes or high-traffic areas; Polypropylene is a synthetic fiber- stain-free, crush resistant and inexpensive.

For maximizing the space visually, just like mirrors, brighter carpet colors and diagonal pattern carpets can serve the purpose. For bedrooms, soft woolen carpets with longer threads are suitable to soften the harsh noises. What’s more, for a children’s room, rely on a carpet with short threads.

A carpet can be found in every household but constantly keeping it clean and stain-free remains one of the grave mysteries that most homeowners have failed to crack.

Despite your utmost care and concern, your carpet is bound to fall victim to stains and dirt. The usual norm is to prevent rather than cure. Well for carpets, if you can’t prevent it, then you might as well cure it. But curing, or rather, cleaning a carpet is where the problem lies.

Most homeowners have failed to find concrete solutions on how carpets can be easily cleaned. Most of the time professional carpet cleaning service is the only answer. But there are a variety of things that homeowners can do by themselves to minimize the damage to their carpets.

Below is a list of a few professional carpet cleaning secrets that you can adopt to ensure a cleaner carpet.



Do Not Rub or Scrub Stains

Clean your carpets with hot water extraction

For your residential and commercial carpet floors, hot water extraction is an
effective method for carpet cleaning . Hot, soft water and an organic cleaning solution are injected into the fiber, to break up and loosen the dust particles, soil, and grime. Then, hot water is sprayed at high pressure for extraction, which leaves the fiber fresh and clean. Natural fibers can be cleaned easily with hot water extraction at a low temperature to prevent shrinking.

Vacuum all the dust away

Carpets are large air filters and trap dust mites and other allergens, which is a cause of major concern for people suffering from asthma and allergies. To maintain your indoor air quality, regularly vacuuming the carpet is important. Also, to manage your home hygiene and to add years to the life of your carpet, vacuuming is essential.

Organically cleaned carpets

Chemicals, synthetics, and ammonia-free detergents are used for organic cleaning. Organic products are made allergy-prone for the health of your family and pet.
