Professional carpet cleaning can have a myriad of benefits for your home. First, it provides a detailed, powerful cleaning experience that will last far longer than if you did it on your own. Second, it manages to clear the air by providing a thorough clean that removes settled particulates. Third, you are left with a brighter, friendlier carpet to use. Before a professional team comes over, there are a few things you can do in order to prepare your home. Let’s take a moment to review these steps now.

  1. Clean

This may seem a little counterintuitive, but the best way to get the most out of your professional carpet cleaning is to clean your carpet beforehand. By cleaning beforehand, you remove dust and particulates that may be covering up bigger and more challenging stains. Pre-cleaning ensures that their single professional job is enough to leave your carpets in the best possible shape. As professional carpet cleaning can be expensive, taking the opportunity to clean beforehand saves you and them hassle moving forward.

  1. Inspect

Once the carpets are cleaned, you will want to move anything else out of the room. In addition, you will want to carefully inspect the carpet yourself. Take a walk around the room and carefully examine every part of the rug. Check to see if you can find any remaining stains or places where the carpet feels particularly worn down. High traffic areas on you carpet are frequent places where hard-to-remove stains will occur. With these spots in mind, tell your carpet cleaners when they come where to focus their time and attention. Doing so will stop them from having to make a return trip to treat these areas.

  1. Make Space

With furniture out of the way, the last thing you have to do is make additional space for their arrival. Make sure there is some open space in the rooms surrounding those that will be cleaned. This will give the professional carpet cleaners a place to set up before they get to work. Also, be sure that family members are well aware when the carpet cleaners are coming as well as how long they will have to wait before walking on the carpet again. Finally, be sure to make space in your driveway or otherwise reserve a space for them to park. This makes it easier for them to bring their equipment inside saving you both time and hassle.
