Vacuum Prior to Carpet Cleaning
When Barrie Carpet Cleaning is booked to clean your carpet or furniture it is highly recommended to vacuum your carpet or furniture prior to a carpet or upholstery cleaning.
Our truck mount system does an excellent job cleaning the dirt, grease and other substance's from your carpet but cannot always pick up the lint and hair that can accumulate on carpet over time. Failure to do so would result in an extra charge for our technician to pre vacuum.
Our powerful vacuum system has a filter to catch hair, lint or other debris. Excess debris could result in a loss of suction towards the end of the job which could effect the end result as well as dry times and is why a good vacuum prior is needed.
Please have the areas to be cleaned ready for the cleaning prior to the technician arriving. It is recommended moving any furniture possible out of the rooms or on top of beds etc if cleaning behind or underneath is desired. If the technician cannot access the carpet it wont be able to be properly pre-treated and cleaned.
Temperature and Humidity
In the hot humid summer or it is highly recommended to have air conditioning running or a dehumidifier to get the carpets dry as quickly as possible which also essential to the end cleaning results. Certain times of the year when between A/C and heat can promote damp conditions which can prolong drying times.
Reappearing stains can be prevented by ensuring that spills are treated as quickly as possible when they occur, in order to prevent the spill from soaking deep into the carpet. After treatment, place a stack of paper towels or a clean white towel over the spot, and use a stack of books or something heavy to weight it down.(If you are worried about your books getting wet or stained, put a piece of plastic wrap between the towel and the bottom book.) This will draw up the moisture left in the carpet.
