To get the best carpet cleaning service, be sure your home is adequately prepared for your cleaning. Follow these tips to get your carpet ready to be cleaned.

Leave Space in Your Driveway

On the day of your carpet cleaning, be sure to leave space for your cleaners to park in your driveway. Most cleaning services need to get as close as possible to an entryway into your home. Their equipment may be connected to their truck and will need to extend to the rooms being cleaned. To make things easier, leave a space for them in your driveway.

Vacuum Your Carpet

Before any carpet cleaning, it is best to give your carpet a thorough vacuuming. This will help remove any dirt and debris that may be on the surface of your carpet. When you call to schedule your carpet cleaning, be sure to ask if they will take care of this task or if it’s something you should perform yourself. Some carpet cleaners do include this in their services, so it’s always best to ask.

Remove Small Items

As you prepare to welcome the carpet cleaners into your home, be sure to remove small items and clutter from the room to be cleaned. Small items that are directly on the carpet can get in the way of a through cleaning and may even become a tripping hazard. Remove items such as floor lamps, toys, clothes, shoes, and electric chords. Also, don’t forget to pin up long drapes and bedding.

Move Large Furniture

Most rooms have at least a couple of large furniture items that will prevent your carpet cleaners from reaching every spot on your carpet. If you want to ensure that your whole carpet gets cleaned, you may have to move larger items yourself. Before starting to remove the furniture yourself, double check the cleaning company’s policies. Some services can help you move large items at no additional cost while others will charge an additional fee for moving furniture. Even if your cleaners don’t offer a furniture moving service, don’t feel obligated to move it all. Remove only the items you feel safe and comfortable moving.

Store Fragile and Valuable Items

If you have fragile items, such as china, in the room to be cleaned, be sure to store these items in a safe place before your cleaning. Remember that your cleaners may be running hoses through other rooms in your home, so keep these fragile items somewhere where they will see minimal foot traffic. If you have items of value, it’s best to keep these stored behind a lock during your carpet cleaning. Although it’s safe to say you can trust your cleaners, keeping valuable items out of sight can help reduce worries and issues.

Keep Your Pets Happy and Safe

If you have pets in your home, it’s best to keep them away from the areas being cleaned. Pets that are easily frightened should be kept in a separate room since a carpet cleaning may involve large equipment, loads noises, and strangers in your home. Since exterior doors may be kept open for the duration of the cleaning, you may even consider taking your pet to a trusted friend’s house. Keeping them offsite can help keep them safer and can help ensure that your cleaning goes by a lot smoother.

Keep an Eye on Small Children

Small children tend to be quite curious. If this is true of the toddlers in your home, you may have to pay extra attention to them during your cleaning. A small child may want to see what’s going on in the room being treated, but they may make the cleaning more difficult for your cleaners. Avoid having them get in the way or messing with the cleaning tools by keeping them busy and entertained in another part of the home. Do your best to avoid having them run through the house since tripping hazards may be escalated by the cleaning equipment running through your home.
