a family cleaning up for a carpet cleaning appointmentWhether you’ve scheduled an appointment with us recently, or you’re hoping to get an appointment soon, you’re probably wondering what to do before we arrive. This is very common of all our customers, and while we don’t want or need you to make significant changes to your home, there are a few simple things you can do to get the most out of your carpet cleaning with the team here at Aroma Fresh Chem-Dry. Check out a few of these things below.

Simple Steps to Take Before a Carpet Cleaning

Here at Aroma Fresh Chem-Dry, your health, safety, and comfort will always come first. You can count on our carpet cleaners here in Oxnard to be professional and communicative before, during, and after the carpet cleaning process. 

We make it easy for you to know exactly what to expect every step of the way. In the meantime, you can take the following measures to prepare your home for their visit.

Remove any Lingering Clutter 

You don’t have to go through everything and see if it sparks joy before tossing it out. It is, however, important to remove items from the carpeted area so our technicians can carefully clean every inch. 

Taking care of this clutter will eliminate a huge tripping risk for our technicians. Items that are frequently overlooked include shoes, toys, books, and small electronic devices.

Move Your Lighter Pieces of Furniture

We don’t need you to throw out your back moving a heavy piece of furniture, but any lighter furnishings should be moved to another area of your home until the carpet is clean and dry. As our carpet cleaners are not licensed furniture movers, this is a crucial step for you to do before we show up for your carpet cleaning.  

Simply clearing the area of small furniture such as plant stands, floor lamps, coffee tables, and ottomans can improve how deeply we actually clean.

Protect Your Important Items

Although we are extremely careful, accidents can and do happen on occasion. We encourage all clients to secure fragile items, heirlooms, and valuables in a safe location to prevent avoidable accidents and minimize unnecessary risks. 

Tell Us of any Problem Areas

It’s important to let us know of any areas that you need us to focus on. If there is a specific spot that drives you crazy, let us know! It’s also helpful to let us know if there is anything such as pet urine in the carpet (if there is a large amount of urine, let us know when we schedule your appointment so we can be prepared to clean it!).

Don’t hesitate to let us know if there are any areas you think require special attention or that you have questions about.

Put Your Pets in a Different Room or with a Neighbor

Everything we do in our carpet cleaning is green-certified and safe for use around pets. But they can still be stressed out and nervous with strangers in the home. Take a moment to put your pet in another room before our carpet cleaners arrive. If we’re cleaning the entire home, we recommend taking the pets out of the home for the duration of the cleaning. It’ll only be a matter of hours before they can have free reign to enjoy your freshly cleaned carpet! 

Create and Tell Us Your Plan for Parking

Because we sometimes use van-mounted equipment, we’re able to work much more efficiently if we can park as close to the door as possible. Even when your requested services do not require these van-based systems, we still need to get our equipment from the vehicle to your front door. For this reason, we ask our clients to facilitate parking for us and make a clear path to the service area. If you live in an apartment building or another housing situation that might make it difficult to get our equipment to you, so please let us know ahead of time if you live in one of these buildings.
