Read These Tips for Carpet Dry Cleaning in Perth before Moving House
When you are moving into a home, it’s important to give the carpets a thorough cleaning before you unpack your belongings. Or better yet, have this taken care of before the movers even arrive to unload your furniture and boxes.
As long as you live in this house, you’ll never have a better opportunity to deep-clean your carpets. There are no obstructions, just open floor space, which means this is probably the most convenient time to arrange carpet dry cleaning in Perth.
It’s worth noting that there’s no way of being absolutely sure how well the previous owners took care of the carpets. You might be able to get a general idea of their cleanliness with a visual inspection, but you won’t be able to see microscopic mites and other contaminants that are too small for the human eye to detect.
Professional carpet cleaning from the team at Chemdry Express will give your home a fresh start so that it’s ready to welcome you from day one. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind at this time:
Consider the Timeline
It’s important that your carpets have time to dry before you actually move in. You’ll find that many steam cleaning services require you to stay off the carpets for one or two days, which can be decidedly inconvenient when you’re dealing with a tight moving schedule. But carpets that we clean dry within a couple of hours, which means you could have them cleaned in the morning and then move in later that same day.
Remove Old Stains before Moving in
This initial cleaning is an excellent opportunity to identify and remove or minimise stains that might have gone unnoticed if the furniture had already been arranged. The Chemdry Express team are experts at stain removal. By the time we’re finished with your carpets, you’ll feel like you’re moving into a brand-new home.
Eliminate Pet Odours
Did the previous homeowners keep indoor pets without maintaining the same level of cleanliness that you would prefer? If so, you may end up dealing with urine and other pet-related odours in some areas of the house. Our Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.) breaks down tough pet stains at their source – completely eliminating the odour-causing agents. Taking care of this before you move is like giving the house a fresh start so that you can move in and make it your own.
Maintaining Clean Carpets Once You’ve Moved In
That initial round of carpet cleaning will refresh your home and prepare it for the new life you have planned for it. But the benefits of an initial deep cleaning diminish if you don’t commit to routine maintenance and upkeep. Make a point early on to stay ahead of these cleanings, and you’ll significantly extend the life of your carpets.
Clean carpets are essential to ensuring a healthy home. While stains are merely unsightly – and have the potential to put a future buyer off purchasing the place – other carpet sanitation issues can affect your health directly. Allergens, dust mites and other pathogens in your carpets can lead to or aggravate the following health problems:
- Respiratory distress, such as asthma
- Skin irritations and infections
- Allergic reactions
- Mould-related illnesses
The above are reason enough to stay on top of your carpet cleaning schedule. However, it’s also worth keeping in mind that routine carpet cleanings in Perth will also extend the life of your carpets and ensure that they are in good conditions in the event that you intend to sell the place later. Don’t leave yourself with an insurmountable amount of cleaning to do just to make the house presentable before you show it.
Proper carpet care is essential to ensuring a healthy home and cutting down on those last-minute hassles. Here are a few simple steps you can take to maintain clean and healthy carpets while you live in the home:
Vacuum Your Carpets Three Times Per Week
Deep cleaning is important, but nothing compares to the solid benefits of vacuuming your carpets on a regular basis. Routine cleaning of this nature slows the build-up of contaminants, pathogens and allergens, and it removes some of the organic matter (such as dead skin cells) that dust mites can feed on between major carpet cleanings.
Promptly Remove Spots before They Set as Stains
While regular carpet cleanings will remove most ground-in stains, there is still much to be said for addressing potential stains when they happen. When spots remain on your carpet for an extended period, they are ground further into the fibres of the carpet by the traffic they receive. When a spot occurs, begin by blotting it to loosen the dirt, and then use a suction or extraction tool to remove it. You can also groom over stains with a towel to lift the carpet fibres and create a more uniform look.
Arrange Professional Carpet Dry Cleaning in Perth at Least Once Per Year
We recommend a minimum of once-annual carpet cleaning with our hot-water extraction method. This will ensure warranty compliance for most carpets sold in Perth. For higher traffic areas, you may want to establish an even more regular carpet cleaning schedule. Furthermore, if you have a problem stain that is developing between annual cleanings, you can also call out the experts at Chemdry to take care of it.
Arrange Deep Carpet Cleaning before Selling
When you are showing a home with the hopes of selling it, your potential buyers are going to take special notice of the condition of the carpets. Generally speaking, the house needs to look inviting and liveable in order to attract higher offers. But even if your furniture is still in the house when they come to view it, they’re not going to take much notice. Instead, they’re going to be more concerned with fittings, appliances and furnishings that are staying in the house once you move out. The carpets will be at the top of this list.
