Are You Ready?
If you are considering hiring a professional cleaning company for tile and grout cleaning or carpet cleaning here are some suggestions that will help both of us before we arrive:
1). Please remove any small items such as dining room chairs, magazine racks, floor plants, etc. from any areas that are going to be cleaned.
2). Please remove all breakable items from furniture which will have to be temporarily moved, cleaned under, and placed back.
3). Please pin up any full length draperies so that they will be at least 6 inches off the floor.
4). Please pin up any skits on upholstered furniture, which may be touching the floor to be cleaned.
5). Computer equipment, china cabinets, sectional sofas, entertainment centers, antique and fragile furniture as a rule cannot be moved. We will attempt to clean as far as possible underneath such items, or we can edge around the base. *When cleaning tile we can often move more furniture than when cleaning carpet.
6). During the pre-inspection walk through with us and please advise us of any special instructions to follow when moving furniture. It is helpful to know about weak legs, loose tops or previous repairs.
7). Please call attention to any spots or stains which may require special cleaning techniques. This list would include mustard stains, red stains, wine stains, and of course pet urine.
8). Please put your pet(s) in a safe quite place where our cleaning won't disturb them.
9). ODORS: We do everything possible to reduce or eliminate pet odors, smoke odors, etc. However, due to the depth of contamination, 100% success may not be attained. Also, for several after cleaning you may notice an elevated odor due to higher humidity levels.
10). Finally, be sure to keep a very close eye on your children.
