How to prepare for a Chem-Dry of Lafayette oriental rug cleaning

If you’re ready to get your rug cleaned but are unsure what you need to do to prepare for our visit, just follow these simple steps. This will help ensure our rug technicians can get your rugs as clean as possible in a short amount of time.

Step 1: Remove clutter

Our area rug cleaners in Lafayette will vacuum before the main cleaning process in order to remove debris, but larger clutter like shoes, toys, and the like can get in the way. Not only that, these items can be a tripping hazard or get in the way of equipment. By removing these items from the area rug and the surrounding area, you can help ensure that your rug is cleaned thoroughly, efficiently, and safely. Take these extra steps to ensure a speedy cleaning!

Step 3: Note stains and other focus areas

Sometimes, once you’ve noticed a stain or a flaw on your area rug, that can become all you see whenever you look at the rug. However, other people may not notice these spots immediately. We certainly want to make sure that you are completely satisfied once we have completed your area rug cleaning, so if there are any particular areas where you want extra care, take a note of them and share that with the rug cleaner when they first arrive. We do our best to locate stains and other spots as well, but it’s great to get feedback from the owner.

Step 2: Move light furniture

Many people place their area rugs under coffee tables and other small pieces of furniture.  While these pieces of furniture can do wonders to tie a room’s decor together, it can get in the way of cleaning your rug. Our technicians are experts at oriental rug cleaning, but they are not licensed movers. Set furniture pieces to the side or in a nearby room. This way, we can clean your entire rug . You can plan on moving your furniture back as soon as the rug is dry, which should be in a matter of hours. Furniture should not be placed on a wet rug.

Step 4: Make preparations for your pets

We love animals, and our cleaning products are pet-friendly. However, pets can easily be scared by our techs and equipment. Pets can also get in the way of our cleaning. It’s best to keep pets out of the room that we are cleaning while we’re at your home. Having someone watch your animal, or keeping them in a different room or the backyard is a great idea. They can come back as soon as the rug is dry, as our cleaning solutions are non-toxic.

Step 5: Clear a path

Technicians have equipment that they must be able to get into your home in order to clean. Make sure that there is a pathway your techs can take in order to clean your oriental rug safely and efficiently. Some technicians use equipment that is attached to the van, so it may be a good idea to move cars out of the way so that his van is as close to the entrance as possible. If you live in a walk-up apartment or have another unique situation, please let us know when you schedule and we’ll work something out so that we will able to get to your rugs to clean.

“Within an hour of my first call, Steven had instructed us on important first steps and responded with the equipment and expertise necessary to promptly mitigate any damage to our finished basement. Steven and Josh handled everything promptly and professionally and communicated with us well every step of the way. I highly recommend Chem-Dry of Lafayette.”

“The lengths that these guys will go to take care of you is just awesome. After my appointment with another carpet cleaner fell through two days before Thanksgiving, Chem-Dry was able to send someone out on the same day and do an outstanding job cleaning 3 stories of carpet in about 3 hours. Because of them, I was able to unload my Upack trailer on time. Thanks!”
