Moving furnitureIf you wish, you may relocate items yourself before our carpet cleaners arrive, giving them more freedom to move around. Choose areas with hard surfaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, attached garages or spaces not being carpet cleaned. As part of our Apex Carpet Cleaning service, we'll move furniture such as lounges, tables, chairs and light weight beds with care using gliders. Furniture that is not practical to move can stay in place and we will carefully clean around it.
Clear carpeted areas of small items
Carpet Cleaning Tip: Place a coat hanger on top of your curtain rod so that you can hang up full length curtains or blind cords. Also tuck up bedspreads and skirts on beds or upholstered furniture which may be touching the carpet.
There’s no need to vacuum your carpet and rugs prior to our arrival. Our technicians will thoroughly vacuum all carpeted areas using an industrial upright HEPA filtration vacuum cleaner as part of our 8-step process for all carpet and rug cleaning services.
Power and water supplyAccess to utilities can be a concern when a house is being sold, purchased or tenants are vacating for an end of lease carpet cleaning. Our carpet cleaners will require the power to be connected in order to complete the full 8 step service which may include turning on lights, powering our fans or steam iron for specialty stain removal. They will also need access to water from an outside tap, as well as a laundry sink that is clear and accessible.
Available ParkingWe ask that you allow an open parking space in front of your home or building for our service van so that our carpet cleaner can back up as close to the access door as possible on arrival.
If your pets are home during carpet cleaning secure them safely, possibly outside or in a room where our cleaning won’t disturb them. Our carpet cleaners will need to go in and out of your home several times and don’t want to let your much-loved pet escape. Some pets may also be frightened by the noise of the carpet cleaning equipment, so if they're secured away in an area where they feel comfortable and safe, it will help calm their nerves.
ConclusionFollowing the above steps will help everything run smoothly during the job and allow our technicians to focus their efforts on giving you the best carpet cleaning experience possible. At Apex Carpet Cleaning, our professional carpet cleaners are highly trained to ensure that the carpets are thoroughly cleaned and your furniture is moved back in place with care. Your carpets will be fresh, clean and ready for you to enjoy.
