5 Tips to Prepare for Professional Carpet Cleaning

May 23rd, 2018 | by Angelo |    0   

Angelo’s FabriClean wants to save clients time and money. As a Vancouver carpet cleaning company, it’s only natural that people want their carpets cleaned quickly and efficiently. But cleaning starts well before the cleaning technicans arrive at the door. By planning ahead and preparing, homeowners can ensure their carpets are cleaned thoroughly and efficiently.

1) Declutter

Carpet cleaning often relies on some heavy equipment. From hoses to cords to the machine itself, there are many tripping hazards. So, make sure the floors are as clean and accessible as possible. Don’t just focus the big objects. Think about toys, socks, etc. Additionally, a quick vacuum will ensure that technicians can focus on stains and deep cleaning.

2) Remove the big stuff

Carpet cleaners are not licenced to move furniture, so make sure furniture is well out of the way. Move plant stands, coffee tables, floor lamps, and anything that can be easily transported. Make the carpet as accessible to the cleaner as possible, so they can access corners and areas that would be typically covered by furniture.

3) Protect the walls

To avoid any friction or scratching on corners or baseboards caused by machinery, consider applying some painter’s tape wherever the cords are going to rub. Painter’s tape is perfect since it comes off easy and leaves no marks behind.

4) Lock up valuables

It’s better to be safe than sorry. While most technicians from reputable companies are completely trustworthy, there’s always a chance something might get knocked off and suctioned up accidentally. Store valuables (and fragile objects) somewhere safe until the job is done..

5) Keep pets away

Big noisy machines can be stressful for pets—and that’s without even considering the stranger parading through the house. It’s a good idea to put them somewhere safe and secured, especially considering that the front door may need to remain open in certain situations.
