Clean Carpets & Tiles Before Selling a Home
Selling a house can be a stressful experience and cleaning it can be even more of a pain. The best thing to do is hire the services of a professional cleaning company. The one thing potential buyers see is the dirt in a home. So for the best impressions have your carpet cleaning done and at the same time have your tile cleaning done. This can make a big difference on how people see your home for the first time.
The good thing with steam or dry cleaning is it will leave a lasting fragrance throughout the home. This is a great advantage when having open homes.
If a potential buyer can see that your home doesn’t need new carpets or tiles to be replaced, then it can mean they feel more comfortable with the purchase. The initial outlay of having the carpet cleaning done is nothing if the house sells in less time.
A professional carpet cleaning and tile and grout cleaning company would make sure that the carpets had a deodoriser rinsed through them at the same time as cleaning. This can be done with most cleaning machines these days. By applying the deodoriser in this manner, it will give a longer lasting pleasant smell throughout the house.
The first thing most people notice when walking through a home is the condition of the carpets and tiles. This is amplified when the house is empty. Grout lines can look very dirt when the fridge has been removed and the dining table and chairs are out of the way. This also applies to rooms with carpets. Carpets can look clean until you start to remove the furniture, then stains that have been forgotten about will stand out. This is the time you need a professional carpet cleaner to come in and revitalise the carpets and make the fibres stand up right again.
A expert carpet cleaner would also advise of raking the carpet prior to any inspections you may have. After a steam or dry clean has been done, it is easy to rake the carpet pile before anyone comes around for a viewing. The pile will react better after a good steam or dry clean.
Upholstery Steam Cleaning
If you are selling your home furnished, it is a good thing to have the upholstery steam cleaned. Layers of dust can form over seats between cleans. After a professional steam clean, it is a good idea to vacuum upholstery on a regular basis. It will also help eliminate any dust mites from harbouring in your furniture.
