One of the most important things you can do to keep your Orange County carpets in top condition is to have them cleaned regularly. By cleaning your carpets once or twice a year, you are extending the service life of your carpet by removing ground in dirt and stains, removing any oily residue that dirt tends to cling to, and helping to remove air pollutants such as dander, dust, and pollen from your home.
At Bixby Plaza Carpets and Flooring, we know that an Orange County carpet cleaning can be a bit of a hassle, as necessary as it is. So, we thought we'd put together a handy little guide to offer our customers a few tips on how to prepare for your cleaners, and minimize the stress of a cleaning for everyone involved.
1. Clear Out the Furniture
Some cleaning companies offer furniture removal as a service, but this is fairly rare, because carpet cleaners aren't always licensed to move furniture. It often falls to the homeowner to remove furniture from rooms where cleaners will be working.
Even if your cleaners do offer furniture removal, you might want to consider moving it yourself if the furniture is antique or particularly valuable, to avoid any possible damage.
2. Make Sure the Floor is Clear of Clutter
Things like toys from children or pets, loose shoes, or random objects strewn about the floor, should be removed before the cleaners arrive. This ensures that none of the workers trip and also allows the team to get started as soon as they arrive. The faster the team can get to work, the faster you will have your home back to yourself!
3. Keep Pets Out of the Way
It's a good idea to find a place to keep your pets that is out of the way of the workers. There will be a lot of commotion and the doors of your house will likely be left open to allow for entry of various cables and technicians. It's a perfect opportunity for a beloved pet to escape.
Putting your pets away also removes the chance of a worker tripping over them, or the pet re-soiling the carpet in the middle of your Orange County Carpet cleaning.
