It’s like when you need to clean up before the maid service comes by, most homeowners may wonder if it’s really necessary. Why spend time tidying up when it’s their job to clean the house? Yes, we understand the argument, but you also know why it’s important to sometimes give a quick rinse to dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, right? You’ll notice the difference a quick clean will make in the final product. Just like putting away the toys in the living room will make it easier for the housekeeper to clean, following these tips will make it easier for a carpet cleaning service to steam clean your carpet and will make for a deeper clean in the end. If it’s time for your carpets to be professionally cleaned, call Steam Master Cleaning, we proudly serve San Antonio and the surrounding areas.

The less that needs to be done the day of your carpet cleaning, the better. This will allow the cleaners to jump right in and start cleaning rather than spending additional time on preparation. Whether you’re cleaning the whole house or just a room or two, find a space that doesn’t have carpet, like the kitchen or garage to place bins of toys and anything lying loose on top of bookshelves or coffee tables. Also, give the carpet a quick vacuum as well. This will pick up larger pieces of dirt and debris and will allow the steam cleaning equipment to reach further into the fibers of the carpet, removing pet dander, pollens, and more.

If you have pets or kids, it’s a good idea to plan an outdoor activity while the cleaning is taking place. This will allow for us to bring in the equipment easily and will prevent any accidents. If there is a fenced in yard, it is best to keep pets outside or make a day trip to a local dog park or hike. Panther Springs Park and McAllister Dog Park are great parks in the San Antonio area that the whole family can enjoy. It is also recommended that pets avoid the carpet for a few hours until it is able to dry.
