Preparing for carpet cleaning: Carpet cleaning is essential! Whether it’s your first time or you’ve done this a few times, most likely the reason is you want your carpets to become #dazzling again. Here is a guide on how to best prepare for carpet cleaning:
First, book an appointment!
Getting your carpets cleaned means that the rooms cleaning is happening in won’t be useable for a little while. Picking a day where there is not a lot going on inside your home is the most ideal. Allow enough time in your schedule/day for the entire process and the drying process afterwards. Booking with Dazzle is easy! You can book here or call us at (604) 802-8500 to book an appointment.
Move big furniture
It is best to clear the areas/ rooms as much as possible from objects/ furniture or anything in the way. Anything that could be at risk of damage we would recommend taking down or putting away in a safe area to best protect them in preparing for carpet cleaning. Any big furniture that can’t be moved is okay – our technicians will clean around or underneath as best as they can!
Vacuuming is important for preparing for carpet cleaning. To ensure that your carpets get the deepest clean possible – give your carpets a good vacuum clean before your technician arrives. This allows all the superficial particles like dirt and dust to be cleared from the carpet, so that the carpets are more prepared for their treatment and deep cleaning.
In comes Dazzle!
When our technicians arrive on-site they will do a pre-inspection walk through with you of all the areas of carpet that you are getting cleaned that day. They will assess with you any areas of concern you may have, and they will also walk you through the steps of their cleaning process. The technician then takes care of treating stains individually – as well as treating the entire carpet with a pre-treatment. Once this is done our technicians begin the cleaning process using high heat + pressure water extraction to deep clean your carpets. When they are finished they will do a post-inspection walk through with you of all the newly cleaned areas, to ensure that you are satisfied and address anything that may still be of concern with you.
After your technician has completed the cleaning – we recommend waiting until your carpets are completely dry before moving back in any furniture, to allow the carpet to dry in its natural state. Placing furniture on top of the carpet while it is still damp may lead to the structure of the carpet fibers being altered (depending on the type of carpet). Drying time can be anywhere between 4-6 hours – depending on the environment inside the house, and the weather outside.
There you have it! We hope this guide helps you feel more prepared on how to get the best cleaning possible for your carpets! At Dazzle we strive to make sure that your carpets are cleaned to their fullest potential and left looking #dazzling!
