Regular, professional carpet cleaning helps keep your home looking and feeling clean. Once you’ve scheduled your carpet cleaning appointment with Delta Chem-Dry in Santa Monica, you might be wondering what can you do to ensure we are able to work as effectively as possible. At Delta Chem-Dry, we take pride in providing our customers with excellent service that prioritizes the health, safety, and comfort of their families. You can count on our carpet cleaners to be professional and communicative before, during, and after the carpet cleaning process. In the meantime, here are some simple steps you can take to help your carpet cleaning service go as smoothly as possible.

Remove Clutter

There’s no need to do a complete declutter of your home before our technicians arrive, but it is, however, important to remove items from carpeted areas so we can carefully clean every inch of your carpets. Items that are frequently overlooked include shoes, toys, books, and small electronic devices. Some simple decluttering will make our job easier and ensure you get the deepest clean.

Relocate Light Pieces of Furniture

Heavy, hard-to-lift pieces can stay on the carpet, but any lighter furnishings should be relocated to another area of your home until the carpet is clean and dry. Our carpet cleaners are not licensed furniture movers, so this is an important step for you to perform before we arrive.

Clearing the area of small furniture such as floor lamps, coffee tables, desk chairs, and ottomans can improve the ability of our technicians to give your carpet a thorough clean.

Keep Important Items Safe

Our technicians work carefully, but accidents can happen. To ensure your items are safe, we encourage all clients to secure fragile, sentimental, and valuable items in a safe location while we are cleaning to minimize accidental damage and unnecessary risk.

Make Note of Problem Areas

If you’ve noticed stains or areas you’d like us to focus on, let us know when we arrive so we can give those areas extra attention. It’s also helpful to let us know if there is anything such as pet urine in the carpet (if there is a large amount of urine, let us know when we schedule your appointment so we can be prepared to clean it!).

Keep Pets in a Separate Room

The health and safety of your family is our top priority. The formulas used in our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process are safe and non-toxic for pets, but it can be difficult for our technicians to do their work properly if your pet is underfoot.

Plus, some pets don’t take fondly to strangers working in their homes. Take a moment to put your pet in another room before our carpet cleaners arrive. If we’re cleaning the entire home, we recommend taking your pets out of the home for the duration of the cleaning. It’ll only be a matter of hours before they can have free reign to enjoy your freshly cleaned carpet!

Have a Plan for Parking

Some of our services require van-mounted equipment, so being able to park as close as possible to your home makes it easier for our technicians to properly clean your home. Even when your scheduled services do not require these van-based systems, we still need to get our equipment from the vehicle to your front door. Thus, we ask clients to facilitate nearby parking and make a clear path to the service area. If you live in an apartment building or another housing situation that might make it difficult to get our equipment to you, please let us know ahead of time so we can be prepared.
