While one of the best reasons for professional carpet cleaning is the thought of having someone else do all the hard work, it doesn’t come cheap. Therefore by taking the following steps it not only ensures you’ll get the cleanest carpet possible and the best service but you’ll also get the biggest bang for your buck too.
Give it a vacuum
Even if you think your carpet doesn’t need vacuuming, it’s always worth giving it the once over. Some companies will charge more if they dry vacuum your carpet first so let your carpet cleaner focus on the deep down dirt while you focus on removing the surface dirt.
Cleaning entry mats
While unclean entry mats won’t stop your professional carpet cleaning operative from carrying out their job, they will allow more dirt and debris to collect on your carpet once cleaned. Therefore give them a clean as a precaution so that you can keep your now pristine carpet looking better for longer.
Remove all the furniture that you can
Again, some carpet cleaning companies will charge extra if they have to remove any furniture in order to get to your carpet, so look to clear out the larger pieces of furniture such as sofas, chairs, and sideboards, as well as removing smaller objects such as waste paper baskets, magazine racks, toys, shoes, and any clothing. In doing this you’ve not only saved them a job but you’ve probably also just saved yourself some money.
Point out areas of concern
If you have any particular areas of concern on your carpet such as stains or discolouration it’s well worth pointing these out to your carpet cleaner before they make a start. This way you can ensure that these areas will be prioritised and dealt with, and not missed or skirted over.
Don’t forget to state a preference
It’s well worth bearing in mind that most professional carpet cleaning companies will offer varying degrees of pricing depending upon the type of clean you need. For example, if your carpet is well cared for and doesn’t receive a lot of traffic, then you might want to consider a light clean. This is something you should discuss with your preferred cleaner before they make a start. Oh, and don’t forget to agree a price.
Leave a parking space
If you’re hiring a company with truck mounted cleaning equipment then don’t forget leave sufficient parking space. They’ll need to park their vehicle as close as possible to be able to run any hoses into the house, so by freeing up a space it will save both you and them a great deal of time.
