carpet cleaningHaving already made the choice to have a professional carpet cleaning company take care of your home, you’ve wisely made a choice to protect your carpet investment, maintain a great look in your house, and maintain the value of your property! The next step after scheduling a cleaning is to make sure you get the most out of it — and that means setting up your home to take full advantage of everything professional cleaners have to offer.

Depending upon the circumstances, many cleaning companies will move furniture for you — but if you’re looking to save a little time and have the ability to do so yourself before they arrive, you may want to consider getting the furniture out of the way in advance. In addition, if you have furniture or other things in the rooms to be cleaned that can easily be damaged, such as antiques or sculpture, you’ll probably want to make your own arrangements.

Take some time to clear other items off the floor as well — you’d be surprised once you look around how many things you actually have at carpet level. Things like lamps, chairs, and clothes may stand out, but you’ll also have to think about waste bins, under-desk items like power strips and computer cords, and (if you have children, or are a child at heart) toys.

Finally, be sure to notice any areas where there are particularly troubling stains or excessive soiling — high traffic spots like hallways into kitchens and entry areas, for example. Pointing those spots and stains out to the carpet cleaning professionals you hire will help ensure they spend adequate time addressing your biggest concerns — and will go a long ways toward making sure you’re fully satisfied with your carpet cleaning experience going forward!
