Having your carpets cleaned is an important aspect of maintaining the quality and service life of your carpet, as well as maintaining a healthy atmosphere in your home. However, it can be something of a disruption to your everyday life to have a crew of people come in with machines and tools, and occupy your home for a period of time. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prepare for your carpet cleaning in your Orange County home to reduce the stress and disruption.
It is with this notion in mind that Bixby Plaza Carpets and Flooring threw together this handy guide, to help make your carpet cleaning experience in Orange County a little easier. Here are three things you can do to optimize the process for you and your cleaning team.
1. Make a Quick Pass or Two with a Vacuum
Ideally, you will want your carpet cleaning in Orange County to go as smoothly as possible. Anything that slows down the team and keeps them from getting straight to work, is going to add time to the job and increase the stress levels for both you and the crew.
Most companies don't ask that you vacuum the floors before they arrive, but it is a simple way that you can prepare your carpets so that the team can get straight to work doing what they do best: Deep cleaning your carpets.
2. Nix the Clutter
Along the same lines as the previous tip, anything that acts as a stumbling block to beginning the process of cleaning your carpets, is going to increase the amount of time you'll have extra people in your house disrupting things. Try to make sure that the floor is free of any clutter, such as children's toys, pet paraphernalia, or just random objects on the floor. Speaking of pets...
3. Keep the Pets Safely Away From the Work Area
Your carpet cleaning crew are going to cause a bit of disruption. They will be using loud machines that may frighten pets, and just having a bunch of extra people in the house, is bound to frighten them a bit as well. If you prefer your pets remain indoors, there is definitely a risk of a worker accidentally letting one out. All of this is in addition to the fact that pets might get underfoot, and disrupt the workers.
Try to keep pets contained in an area away from the work zone. Everyone, including the pets, will be happier for it!
Taking these three easy steps will go a long way toward making your carpet cleaning experience in Orange County a much smoother experience.
