How to Prep for Your Professional Carpet Cleaning

A professional carpet cleaning can be a lifesaver for the busy homeowner. Not only does it save you time, but it takes the guesswork out of making your flooring look good as new. If you’re new to getting a professional carpet cleaning done, however, you should know that there are a handful of things you can do to prepare your home and see the best results from our experts at MasterClean

Discuss Problem Spots

Do you have pets? Messy children? An ugly wine stain that you have just not been able to get out? When your carpet cleaning professionals arrive, point out areas of concern in your home that might need extra care. That way, our cleaners can attend to those problem spots and give your carpets a proper refresh. 

Remove Big Furniture

If there are places in your home where you would like additional cleaning, such as underneath couches or tables, take the time to move that furniture to another room to give the cleaners more space to work. This way, they can more thoroughly clean and treat your carpet to improve its longevity. 

It can also be a good idea to remove any delicate objects first (such as glass) to keep them safe while the room is being shuffled about. 

Touch Base With the Family

Give your family ample warning that you’re having your carpets cleaned–this might be a bad time for Zoom calls. Family members will appreciate knowing that the room in question can’t be used for a time, and that there might be excess noise in the home.

Find a Place for Your Pets

In addition to your human family, you might want to consider the furry friends at home. It’s normally a good idea to put them in a separate room with the door shut. Even the best dogs and cats can get jittery when strangers using big machines come into their space. 

The writers at Dogster magazine suggest sequestering your pets away from contractors to give them a safe space while work is being done. Playing calm music and giving them treats will help ease their anxiety. 

Ask About Steps for Later

When Master Clean’s carpet cleaning professionals arrive at your home, it’s a good idea to ask about steps for later. For instance, allowing carpets to stay damp for too long can potentially lead to mold growth. A professional can advise you on how best to know when your carpet is completely dry before you replace your furniture. 

Booking a Professional Cleaning

Cleaning large or delicate carpets on your own is difficult, time-consuming, and can even damage certain rugs. When in doubt, calling a professional can help take the guesswork out of carpet cleaning. Thankfully, MasterClean has been in the business of professional cleaning since 1984, and we guarantee that you will be satisfied with our work.
