How to Prepare for your Professional Carpet Cleaner

Steam & Clean aims to make your home sparkle, but before we come over to do a thorough carpet cleaning, there are a few steps you can take to ensure we can get the job done efficiently and with the best results.

1. Furniture Moving: Who’s on Duty?

Before we arrive, it’s crucial to confirm whether you need to move large furniture pieces, or if we’ll take care of it. The more you prepare beforehand, the smoother the process will be.

2. Safeguard Your Precious Belongings

Accidents can happen, especially during a rigorous cleaning process. To avoid any mishaps, store away delicate or valuable items securely.

3. Declutter the Floor

Little items like toys, coins, and jewellery can become a big nuisance if they get sucked up by our powerful cleaning machines. Make our job easier by clearing them off your carpets before we arrive.

4. Curtains – Up and Away

Water and dampness can be harmful to your floor-length curtains. Keep them approximately six inches off the floor to prevent contact with any moisture during the cleaning operation.

5. Identify Problematic Zones

If there are specific stains or damaged areas you want us to address, please point them out, and if possible, explain the cause. This will allow our cleaning technicians to treat them more efficiently.

6. Kids and Pets – Safe and Sound

Ensure that children and pets are safely tucked away in a separate space during the cleaning process. They will need to stay there until the carpet has completely dried to avoid any unnecessary mess.

7. Consider Parking

Our team will be carrying heavy equipment, so having a parking spot as close to your property as possible would be very helpful.

8. Vacuuming – A Preliminary Round

A quick vacuum before we arrive can help rid your carpet of loose dirt. Please check with us if this is necessary.

9. Dust Off Skirting Boards

Dusting off your skirting boards before we arrive can prevent any loose debris from settling back into your freshly cleaned carpets.

10. Queries and Concerns? Write them Down!

If you have any questions or concerns about the cleaning process, jot them down. Our technicians will be more than happy to address them.

To conclude, your preparation can greatly enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of our carpet cleaning service. If you’re ready to schedule an appointment or need a quote, do get in touch with us at Steam & Clean.
