FAQ 6 Should I move my furniture before I have my carpets steam cleaned?

When it comes to steam cleaning your carpets, you may wonder whether or not you need to move your furniture beforehand. As a rule Bellamy's Carpet Cleaning and Pest Control Recommends that you move as much furniture out of the way as possible. After 42years of experience in this industry we have some very good reasons why. Let's explore this question further and provide some helpful tips to ensure the best cleaning results.

Firstly, it's important to consider the potential for wood stains. If you have wooden furniture or legs that come into contact with your carpets, it's best to move them to avoid any potential transfer of wood stain onto the carpet during cleaning. Depending on the type of wood, the woods finish and carpet type there is the potential for wood stain to leech into your carpet, which may result in stains.

When it comes to access all areas, it's essential to move any furniture that obstructs the cleaning process. Steam cleaning requires deep-reaching heat and moisture to sanitize and clean the fibers of your carpets thoroughly. To ensure that every inch of your carpet receives the proper treatment, you must move large pieces of furniture, such as couches or cabinets, to access all areas. This will allow Bellamy's Carpet Cleaning to reach every part of your carpet. You have paid for a quality Carpet Clean, by accessing all areas of your carpet it means it can all be cleaned properly.

So, should you move your furniture before having your carpets cleaned? The simple answer is yes. Moving your furniture is necessary to achieve the best result. Leaving large pieces of furniture in place could result in under-cleaning or even damage to the carpet underneath. Moving furniture beforehand means that your steam cleaner can reach every inch of the carpet, removing any dirt and stains and providing a healthier environment for your pet.

Remember, professional steam cleaning can be time-sensitive, and you don't want to hinder the cleaner's process. Preparing your home before they arrive, including moving your furniture, will help reduce the time they spend in your home, making the process more efficient and less disruptive to you and your pet.

By moving your furniture, you're giving your steam cleaner the best chance for success and ensuring that your carpets receive the most thorough cleaning possible. With this in mind, you can rest assured that you're providing your furry friend with a clean and healthy living space that they'll love. Happy cleaning!
