Giving your beloved carpet a professional carpet clean is a great way to remove any dust, dirt and allergens that normal vacuuming can’t. As such hiring a professional company to carry out the task is a worthwhile investment that not only keeps your carpet looking and smelling great, but also makes your home a more comfortable place to live. In order to get the best out of the whole experience there are certain things that you should do before their impending arrival. Let’s take a look…
You might think that this is the job of the carpet cleaning company themselves but by giving your carpet a thorough vacuum before they arrive gives them the opportunity to do a better job. The reason…. They only have to remove the dirt left behind by your vacuum resulting in an overall cleaner carpet. Besides this, some companies will carry out the first vacuum for you, but usually for an extra fee. Therefore by adopting a DIY approach, you’re also saving yourself money too. A win/win situation all round!
Make a list of any spots and patches
The next thing you should do is to make a note (either mentally or written) of all the stains, spills or dirty patches you can see on your carpet. This way when the cleaning company arrives, you can show them the problem areas and they can pre-treat them. It’s a well known fact that any stains that are pre-treated before cleaning commences stand a far greater chance of being removed completely, leaving you with a carpet to be proud of.
Make sure you’re home when they arrive
Some people, whether its a business or a homeowner will simply leave access for the carpet cleaners and not be there in person, simply because they don’t want to get in the way. However in many cases the company doing the cleaning might need to ask some important questions about your carpet in order to deliver the best possible service. Clearly if you’re not around, then they’ll have to rely on professional instinct and guess work which may or may not pay off. Alternatively by making yourself available, you’re on hand to answer any questions they may need, and more importantly, listen to any feedback on how you can help to extend the life of your carpet.
Remember by following these three simple steps you’ll be left with a carpet that not only looks and smells great but one that will last for many years to come.
