How to Prepare Your Orange County Home for a Carpet Cleaning

Bixby Plaza Carpets And Flooring has been in the business of carpet cleaning in Orange County since 1971, and one thing we have noticed is that many of our customers have a tendency to over-prepare.

While we appreciate the effort, it's always a bummer to see that someone has gone to such great lengths to prepare unnecessarily. So, we thought it might be a good idea to provide our customers with a quick guide to help them prepare for their upcoming Orange County carpet cleaning. Here are five tips to help you get prepared without overdoing it.

Nix the Clutter

This is a thing most customers instinctively know to do. All this means is to pick up any loose items that might be lying around the work area, such as toys, shoes, pet paraphernalia etc. Not only will this help to eliminate any tripping hazards for the workers, it will also save on the amount of time required to prepare before the team can get to work on your lovely Orange County carpets.

Move the Furniture

Most carpet cleaning teams are not licensed to move furniture, so it falls to the customer to ensure that the area is clear of any obstructions to the job. It's a good idea to move any furniture to a safe place located away from the work zone, to avoid any possible damage to your furniture and expedite the process for the workers. This will save them time on the job and minimize the disruption to your daily routine.

Keep Your Walls Safe

This is something that is often overlooked by many customers, because it isn't a very obvious concern. When your team comes in, they will be hauling in equipment with lots of chords that can scuff your walls when they rub against them. Take the time to lay down a few pieces of higher quality painters tape to areas such as corners and stairs where there is likely to be contact with chords. This will save you the trouble of having to clean nasty scuff marks off of your walls.

Remove any Valuables

Most companies employ workers that they trust, but that doesn't mean a crook doesn't slip through the cracks here and there. Though it is highly unlikely that anything will turn up missing, it is still a good idea to lock away any valuables you may have lying around, if for no other reason than to provide you with peace of mind.

Contain Pets

It's a good idea to keep your pets away from the work zone because, as loveable as they are, they tend to interfere with the job. Another important reason to keep them away from the action, is that much of the equipment used in the cleaning process is quite noisy and tends to frighten pets. It's just better for everyone involved if they stay tucked away until the job is done.
