TUCK YOUR CURTAINS ABOVE – If you have any floor-length curtain in carpeted areas in your home, make an effort to pin them up to at least six inches above the floor. This will help protect your curtains from getting damaged. When you are doing this, please be aware of of any spots or stains that might need some extra attention. 

REMOVE FRAGILE ITEMS – Fragile furniture and breakables will need to be removed from every carpeted room and kept in a safe place where they won’t tumble and break. This will help keep your items safe from damage. You will need to make sure that your cleaners are aware of how many and what types of items they will be cleaning before they visit your house that day. 

AN ESTIMATE WILL BE PROVIDED – The estimate of the entire expense that you will have to incur as well expectations and results of cleaning will be discussed prior to the appointment. 


Small items such as children’s toys, pet beds, clothes, shoes and rugs should be picked up before we arrive. Furniture should be moved out of the areas that you are having serviced – we will clean around any furniture that is left in place. We also recommend temporarily moving any breakables like picture frames or glass decorations to a safe location. Point out any heavily soiled areas to your technician during pre-inspection. This information will help your technician determine the appropriate cleaning or repair methods to use on different areas. 


The chemicals that we use are environment-friendly and child-safe. Once the cleaning is completed, your carpet is machine dried and is ready to be walked on immediately.  In the months preceding your carpet cleaning, regular maintenance is key. Vacuum regularly, add protection to high traffic areas such as runners and mats, deal with stains immediately and deep clean once to twice a year to protect your investment.
