There are certain misconceptions that people have about carpet cleaning in NYC. They think that the professional is just going to come in and wave his magic wand and everything is going to get sorted out. This is not the case at all. There are certain things that a carpet and rug cleaning firm is not capable of doing and a few things that only you can do for example preparing for a cleaning session at home. Today we are going to have a look at both these aspects so that we have realistic expectations of the carpet cleaning company we are about to hire.
What is your carpet cleaning firm in NYC not going to be responsible for? Are you aware of it? They are going to clean your carpets and rugs but there are certain wrong ideas afloat about that lead us to believe that there is a whole lot more these professionals can do and these include:
• They will not replace carpet pile if and when it falls out due to severe backing damage.
• When your carpets and rugs have become faded, there is no way the professional can make them look like they used to. There is no way to restore its color or the shine of the fabric.
• The carpet cleaning firm will not be able to reverse the damage done by animal or chemical stains.
• If you are looking to fix major problems such as opened seams due to improper installation, you are looking in the wrong direction.
Now coming to the many things that you as a homeowner are expected to do when you have planned for an at-premises carpet cleaning session:
Take Care Of The Temperature Settings
You will have to make sure that you are properly equipped for it beforehand. Ensure that the drying temperature is set between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit. This should be done ideally 12 hours before the professionals arrive and 12 hours after they leave. If you have fans, it will help reduce drying time further.
You can vacuum the carpet and rug as you like it. This will reduce your cost and the time taken to complete the cleaning by the professional.
Freeing Up The Driveway
The professional carpet cleaning company in NYC is going to arrive at your place with some equipment of their own and they will need ample space to dismount all of that. So it makes sense to clean up or free up your driveways or walkways in time.
Take Care Of Your Furniture
When you are looking to get your carpets and rugs cleaned you want the furniture to be covered and protected from any dirt and grime and similarly you would want all the delicate items in your home to be kept at a more secure place where there is no danger of them breaking. So make sure all your furniture is out of the way. This will help speed up the cleaning process.
