If you have an appointment scheduled with ZEROREZ® to have your carpet cleaned and sanitized, you may be wondering what you can do on your end to get your floors ready. While the carpet cleaning professionals have all of the equipment they need to do the job right, here are a few things you could do to help make the entire process easier and produce more effective results.
Install A New Furnace Filter
If you’ve noticed a dark discoloration on your carpeting and walls near your heating vents, the culprit could be a dirty furnace filter. Pollen, pollution and soot buildup can make its way through a dirty furnace filter and contribute to carpet stains. Changing out the filter before a deep clean will help ensure that your carpeting won’t continue to become soiled. ZEROREZ® also does professional air duct cleaning. This will help eliminate old dirt and debris buildup from deep inside your furnace and air ducts.
Making sure that the surface of your carpeting is free of debris can help speed the professional cleaning process along. This includes removing any small objects that may have fallen onto the floor. Vacuuming the entire carpeting to remove any surface items such as hair or food can also help make the deep cleaning more effective. When ZEROREZ®cleans your carpeting, the powerful extraction wand that they use helps to remove deep down soil and dirt. The less dirt that is picked up allows the Empowered Water™, green cleaning solution to fully penetrate carpet fibers to produce a clean and vibrant looking carpeting.
Keep Pets At Bay
After you have done a thorough vacuuming, try to keep pets away from your carpeting as much as possible. If your pets have left behind a lot of hair and fur, try to eliminate it before the pros arrive. This prevents more odors from forming and from additional hairballs from getting trapped within your carpeting. Less hair makes it easier for the carpet cleaning professional to target stains that lie beneath the carpeting and into the padding.
Reduce Heavy Foot Traffic Flow
In the days before your carpets are to be professionally cleaned with Empowered Water™ Technology, try to reduce the amount of foot traffic that goes over your carpet. If it means setting up a cleaning station at your entryway, it will help reduce the risk of tracking in more dirt. If you are having a dinner party or the kids are inviting some friends over after softball practice, set up some temporary area rugs that can easily be removed before ZEROREZ® arrives. If carpet areas get dirty, use some ZEROREZ® Primacide B-Fluid to help target and lift dirt and grime.
If your carpet sees a lot of daily wear and tear, there is bound to be some spills and accidents from time to time. When spills occur, try to soak up the stain and then spot clean with a green organic carpet cleaner, such as B-Fluid. For petsthat may accidentally potty on your carpet, mention to your carpet cleaning pro to apply ZeroStink. This product targets odors by breaking their molecular bond. The result is a pleasant scent that destroys odors on contact.
