How to Prepare for a Commercial Carpet Cleaning Company
- Ask about moving the furniture.
- Make the crew aware of problematic zones.
- Make sure there’s adequate parking for their truck and equipment.
- Block off a parking area for their truck.
As the owner of a business or manager of a commercial space, you’re the head honcho.
It has its perks, for sure. You get to claim the best parking spot and everyone has to like you – or at least, pretend they do. 😉
But being the big cheese also means the responsibility for maintaining the building or office is all on your shoulders. It can be an overwhelming task at times.
But the way your workspace looks is a huge part of keeping a loyal client base and bringing in new business. (Nobody wants to work with an organization with dirty carpets and stained upholstery.)
Speaking of dirty carpet, one of the essentials is to have a commercial carpet cleaning company come in regularly to give your floors the deep-down clean that you can’t manage on your own.
So, how do you prepare for “the big guns” to come in?
Don’t worry – we’ve got the info you need to be ready to welcome the pros.
Prepare for Your Commercial Carpet Cleaning Company
Ask About Moving the Furniture
Some commercial carpet cleaning companies will move furniture with the fee already figured into the price they quote you. Others will leave the ball in your court and will do it for an optional charge.
And some won’t touch the furniture but will expect you to have it moved out before they arrive.
The only way to know what to expect is to ask.
When you’re paying money out of your business’ budget for carpet cleaning, you want it to be as effective as possible.
Don’t take the attitude that “It’s just going to get cleaned anyway so why bother vacuuming?”
Getting rid of as much dust and dirt on your own before the pros come, they can get down to business, removing stains and achieving the deep clean that you can’t.
Make the Crew Aware of Problematic Zones
While you won’t do this before your commercial carpet cleaning company shows up, you will need to handle it before they start their work.
Be aware of areas with stubborn stains or spaces that endure a ton of foot traffic.
For example, remember when Tom spilled wine on the rug last Christmas? No matter what you’ve tried, the darn spot just hasn’t come out. That’s something you need to mention to the crew.
The more information you can give them about when it happened and what the stain is, the better they’re able to choose a remedy that works.
Block Off a Parking Area for Their Truck
Your commercial carpet cleaning company is going to arrive in a big vehicle with a lot of heavy equipment.
Make sure there’s a spot reserved so they can access everything they need and give your office or commercial space the treatment it needs.
