Carpet Cleaning

This past weekend we had our carpets cleaned by Stanley Steemer. We had wanted to get the carpets cleaned because the previous owners of this home had a cat and a dog. Even after all the vacuuming I did, the carpets didn’t seem clean to us. And Jeff would frequently wake up in the morning with a stuffy nose or headache which we figured could have been caused by allergens in the carpet. It’s actually recommended to get your carpets cleaned every one to two years as well, and we don’t know if or when ours were ever cleaned before we moved in! Here is a view of the Stanley Steemer van in our driveway –

Preparing for Stanley Steemer to come over was a lot of work. We spent Friday night moving everything off of the carpets that we could and putting it in either the basement or the dining room. Saturday before they came we had to finish by moving Cocoa’s cage, hay, and other supplies to the basement. It is good to get your pets out of the way for carpet cleaning because it is loud and plus lots of cleaning chemicals are being used during the process. Stanley Steemer did move all of the furniture in order to clean under it and then just put it back into place with little blocks under, so the wood would not bleed into the wet carpet. If you are planning to get carpets cleaned, be sure to ask the company if they will move the furniture. One company I called said they would only move sofas, love seats, chairs and end tables. If you are getting a bedroom cleaned that doesn’t do you much good!

Stanley Steemer cleaned the carpet in the living room, hallway, guest bedroom, office, and master bedroom. It only took them one hour to do all of that. Our house smelled very clean when they left and I am very happy with the results! It was a pain moving everything out of the rooms but in the end I think it was worth it!
