Preparing for a Professional Carpet Cleaning Visit

Cleaning your carpet isn't just about vacuuming it and preventing stains. Your carpet also needs regular maintenance and professional care. In most cases, it is recommended that you have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once or twice a year to prevent allergens and to keep your carpet durable. Since this really isn't all that often, it is important to make the most of each carpet cleaning appointment. The following tips can help you prepare for a more successful carpet cleaning visit.

Hire a Good Carpet Cleaning Company

It is very important to rely on a good carpet cleaning company that satisfies your needs and provides a good service. The best way to make sure you are satisfied with the carpet cleaning services offered is to communicate effectively with the company and make sure you are prepared for their carpet cleaning visit. However, it is also important to find out more about their cleaning method as this can also make a big difference in how efficient and safe it is. At Charlotte Cleanpro, they use a completely safe cleaning process that is incredibly powerful yet gentle on your carpet. Contact them today and learn more about their amazing Cleanpro system.  

Talk to the Carpet Cleaner Ahead of Time and Find out What You Need to Do in Advance

Make sure that when you schedule a carpet cleaning appointment you learn of any previous work they might need you to do, such as vacuuming or removing certain objects. Ask what their services include and what they don't. Also, ask them to specify in detail what they will and won't do in regards to preparation of the carpeted area before the actual deep cleaning. Some professional services include everything from clearing the furniture in the area to vacuuming the carpet beforehand. Others require that you actually have the area prepared and cleared beforehand. It is very important that you ask all of this when you contact a professional carpet cleaning service. Find out if there are any extra fees they charge for any additional work required. 

Let the Carpet Cleaner Know Your Needs

If you have pets or young children, it is also important that you communicate this with your carpet cleaner ahead of time. With kids, there are times we just walk into a room and we don't even want to know how a certain spill or spot got there. They can be incredibly sneaky and creative when it comes to ¨decorating the carpet,¨ or hiding stains. Letting the carpet cleaner know ahead of time that you have kids or pets lets them prepare better and gives them an idea of what to expect.

Keep Pets and Children in a Safe Spot

In most cases, it is recommended that you keep pets outside or away when you have a carpet cleaning appointment. Many times, pets are extra sensitive to the noise or smell of certain products and can become irritated. It is also important that they don't get in the way of the carpet cleaner and the areas that need to be cleaned. That is why it is best to keep them in an area such as a backyard or away when you have a carpet cleaning appointment. You may also want to plan for young children and small kids to be away during a carpet cleaning visit in order to keep all areas free of little feet and hands running around. However, if that's not possible, it is usually not as much of a problem as long as they are supervised at all times.

Other Tips for a Successful Carpet Cleaning Visit

  • Try to keep the driveway or front parking spot available for the carpet cleaner. Since there is likely a few pieces of equipment or tools that must be taken out and back, it will make it easier for them to be more efficient if they are able to leave the vehicle parked close by.
  • Put away fragile items or things that can easily fall. Carpet cleaners are usually very careful, but you still want to be cautious and prevent accidents. Place fragile picture frames, china, collectibles, etc. in a safer area or box away from where the carpet cleaner will be working.
  • When your carpet cleaner arrives you should also point out any areas that you are extra concerned about or spots that need additional care or which need more focus. They might also ask about a few stains or spots to try and find the best treatment to remove them.
