A few times a year, such as spring and fall, it's important to get your home's flooring professionally cleaned. No matter what type of flooring you have, having it deep cleaned offers a variety of benefits. 

Although you may clean your flooring on a regular basis, by either mopping tile floors, sweeping wood floors, or vacuuming carpet, professional cleaners are able to do a more thorough job. The flooring experts have stronger equipment, such as heavy-duty steamer cleaners, as well as professional-grade cleaning supplies. 

Depending on how much foot traffic your flooring receives, getting it deep-cleaned even once or twice annually will help extend its life by removing dirt, debris, and stains. If you have kids, pets, or a busy household, it may be necessary to have your floors cleaned more often. Not only does cleaning improve the flooring's appearance, but it can also help reduce the allergens in your household.

There are some things that you can do to prepare your home for professional cleaners and ensure a smooth process. Here are a few tips to consider:

1. Clear Your Driveway

On the day of the professional cleaning, make sure your driveway is clear and can accommodate their truck, van, or equipment. Park in your garage or on the road if necessary, so that the cleaners have easy access to your front door.

2. Move Smaller Furniture 

Although you won't be able to move large items, such as a bed or a heavy couch, out of the way. you can remove smaller furniture pieces. For instance, if you're having your bedroom carpeting cleaned, place a nightstand, desk, or chair in another room so that the cleaners can reach as possible with their equipment. 

3. Vacuum Carpeting 

Another easy way that you can prepare for deep cleaning is by vacuuming your carpeting. This will remove any small particles, including food crumbs, dirt, and pebbles, so that the cleaning equipment can reach deep into the carpet fibers without obstructions.

4. Remove Clutter

Prior to the cleaners arriving, take a walk around your home and remove any clutter from the floors. This may include shoes, pet and children's toys, boxes and crates, and piles of clothing. Tidy up your house so that the cleaners can get straight to work when they arrive. 

If you have any pets, put them in a secure location, such as a closed bedroom, to keep the cleaners safe while they're in your home.
