Remove Clutter 

While not everything needs to be removed from your home before carpet cleaning from Grace Chem-Dry, it’s essential to take time beforehand to remove lighter furnishings that cover the carpeted area. This includes items like plant stands, floor lamps, coffee tables, and ottomans. Be sure to also scan your carpet for smaller tripping hazards for our team, including shoes, toys, books, and small electronic devices.

Heavier furniture can stay put where it’s at, but taking the time to remove easier to lift items out of the way will save our team tremendous amounts of time. Our technicians will also be able to closely target every inch of your carpet to provide a thorough cleaning.

Ensure Important Items are Safe

It’s unlikely, but accidents can happen regardless of how careful we strive to be during the carpet cleaning process. Because of this, we ask each of our clients to take the time to store away fragile and valuable items in the carpeted area. This will significantly minimize unnecessary risks.

Check for Problem Areas

Perhaps you are aware of specific areas on your carpet that you would like our team to place additional focus on. Let us know! While we will conduct a spot test and a thorough pre-inspection before initializing the carpet cleaning, we recognize that you know your carpets best at the end of the day.

Don’t hesitate to let us know if you are aware of any areas that may require special attention. Our expert stain removal service has helped many homeowners throughout Columbia and Camden rid their carpets of some of the most resilient stains. If we can’t get it out, no one can! We’d be happy to walk you through different plans of action to ensure you get the cleanest carpets possible.

Direct Pets to Another Room

While our primary carpet cleaning solution is safe for the family, it is also safe for pets. This is because it passes the rigorous standards of our green certification program. However, just because our process is pet-friendly does not mean that pets should be roaming freely indoors when we make our visit to your home. It can be challenging for our technicians to get our job done effectively and safely if pets are underfoot.

Please take a moment to place your pets in a separate room before we arrive. In a matter of hours, when your carpets are clean and dry, they’ll be able to have free reign once again.

Have Parking Sorted

Sometimes we use equipment that is van-mounted to clean your carpets. Because of this, we ask that you coordinate parking so that we may park our vans as close as possible to your door to utilize our equipment effectively. If we don’t use van-mounted equipment, we ask that you still leave proximity parking to your door so that we may easily transfer equipment from our van to your home.
