Preparing for Your Delta Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Appointment in San Fernando

At Delta Chem-Dry, we take pride in providing our customers with excellent carpet cleaning service that prioritizes the health, safety, and comfort of their families. You can count on our technicians to be professional and communicative before, during, and after the carpet cleaning process. We make it easy for you to know exactly what to expect every step of the way. In the meantime, you can take the following measures to prepare your home for their visit.

Remove Any Clutter 

There’s no need to do a complete declutter of your home to enjoy a cleaner, fresher carpet. It is, however, important to remove items from the carpeted areas so our technicians can carefully clean every inch. This step is also important for eliminating tripping hazards for our team members. Items that are frequently overlooked include shoes, toys, books, and small electronic devices.

Relocate Lighter Pieces of Furniture for the Duration of the Carpet Cleaning

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. Simply clearing the area of small furniture such as plant stands, floor lamps, coffee tables, and ottomans can improve the ability of our technicians to give more of your carpet the deep clean it needs.

Make Note of Problem Areas on Carpet

Are there any specific areas you would like your carpet cleaners to focus on? While our technicians conduct a spot test and thorough pre-inspection before beginning the carpet cleaning process, we realize you know your carpet best. If there is a specific spot or stain that drives you crazy, let us know! It’s also helpful to let us know if there is anything such as pet urine on 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 Another Room

While the formulas used in our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process are safe and non-toxic for pets, it could be difficult for our technicians to do their work 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 the pets out of the home for the duration of the cleaning. It will only be a matter of hours before they can enjoy your freshly cleaned carpet themselves! 

Have a Plan for Easy-Access Parking

Because we sometimes use van-mounted equipment, we’re able to work much more efficiently if we can park as close to the door as possible. Even when your requested 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. 

If you’re ready to have your carpet cleaned by the professionals at Delta Chem-Dry in San Fernando, schedule your appointment here and take the first step toward a cleaner, fresher, and healthier carpet!
