Besides improving how rooms look, clean carpeting also has a positive impact on the air quality in your home. To ensure your flooring is spotless, it's best to turn to professional carpet cleaning services. Here are a few ways you can prepare your property so the process can run smoothly and efficiently. 

How to Prepare for Professional Carpet Cleaning

1. Clear the Floor

Prepare each room by clearing the floors of any toys or small items lying around. If necessary, vacuum the floors to remove loose dirt so that the cleaners can focus on the trouble spots. Pin up long draperies, bedspreads, and dust ruffles so that there's access to all areas of the carpet. Make sure there are at least six inches of clearance between the drapes and the floor. 

Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning Westlake will vacuum using commercial vacuums and your initial vacuuming will help them get your carpet even cleaner.

Remove small furniture such as floor lamps, wastebaskets, ottomans, and small tables. Clearing these items will help your carpet cleaners work more efficiently and clean all parts of your carpet. Tuck valuable and fragile items away to ensure they are not damaged during the process. 

2. Create an Accessible Space

Most professional carpet cleaners use a truck-mounted system.They leave the carpet wet for hours and will need to park close to the door that provides the best access to the carpets that need cleaning. Make sure there is a place for them to park with enough room to operate. Clear a space in your driveway or reserve a spot in the street for them. They will need to leave a door open as they work, so make sure your pets are in a secure area, such as in a laundry room or in the backyard.

Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning Westlake is a professional low moisture carpet cleaner (LMCC). LMCC's use less water and dry times vary between 30 minutes to 1 Hour.

3. Identify Stains

Make a list of the stains you have not been able to remove from your carpets and what caused them if you can remember. Stains such as wine or tomato sauce may not come out through regular cleaning. Share your list with your carpet cleaners to help ensure they do not miss any problem spots and that they treat each stain accordingly.
