5 Things You Can Do to Get the Most Out of Your Carpet Cleaning Service:
The technician can assist with some furniture moving however, the next time you call Electrodry Carpet Dry Cleaning for your annual carpet clean it’s a good idea to get prepared for the visit.
You are about to have all your carpets cleaned. Dust now so that you aren’t dirtying your carpet all over again! Don’t forget under the furniture and all your skirting boards.
2. CLEAR CLUTTER
Put away everything that you can in advance of your technician’s visit. Don’t forget under the bed. Resist the urge to put things on top of furniture that may need to be moved when the carpet is being cleaned. For example, don’t put all the things that are under your bed on top of the bed or the technician may not be able to move it. Remove all the kid’s toys and if it’s close to Christmas, move the Christmas tree into a room that isn’t being cleaned to keep it safe while the cleaning is taking place.
3. CLEAR ITEMS ON TOP OF FURNITURE TO BE MOVED
Things like photo frames and decorative items that are on occasional tables that you intend to be moved during the carpet clean. Move them away so that they can remain safe from breakage.
4. DISCONNECT YOUR OWN ELECTRICAL ITEMS.
If you need to move electrical items like dvds and sound equipment, you will have to move them yourself. The Electrodry Carpet Dry Cleaning Canberra technician is not allowed to move these items for you as they are easily broken.
5. MOVE MATS.
If you aren’t having your rugs or mats cleaned by Electrodry, then move them out of the way. Once you’ve cleared the way for your technician to get to work, he may be able to help move some small items of furniture if it’s necessary. Under occupational health and safety guidelines however, he is limited to a weight limit of approximately 15 to 20 kilograms. Unless items are on wheels he is unable to lift anything heavier. Anything that is flush to the ground won’t be moved either because if it is replaced on a damp floor the carpet won’t be able to breathe and dry properly, attracting mould and bacteria.
If items such as lounges are heavier and not on wheels they will be moved only if they can be slid from side to side out of the way. Generally however, beds larger than a double bed size won’t be moved unless they are on wheels. Electrical equipment such as computers, dvds, tvs and stereos will not be moved as they are easily damaged as are their cords and power supply units.
Your Electrodry Carpet Dry Cleaning technician is keen to do a good job. They want a happy customer and you will generally find they are as helpful as it is possible to be without putting themselves or your belongings in danger.
