Once you’ve scheduled a time and set a date to have your carpet cleaned, there are a couple of other things you will want to take care of before the carpet cleaner arrives at your house, including potentially moving some furniture, finding somewhere for your pet to stay during the cleaning.


Most carpet cleaners are comfortable with moving items like couches, love seats, ottomans, dining chairs, coffee tables, and similar decor, however, there is some furniture they are unlikely to move.

If you want carpet beneath an entertainment center cleaned or desk, you will likely want to move those items yourself before the carpet cleaner’s arrival. If you are unable to move the furniture on your own, at the very least, remove all the electronics and other fragile items that you keep on it and then ask the carpet cleaner if they are comfortable moving the item when it is clear of your valuables and other items.

You’ll also want to be aware of cords and other items. It would be nice to have cords in order prior to the appointment as well.

Other pieces of furniture carpet cleaners are unlikely to move are beds, dressers, pianos, grandfather clocks and china cabinets. If you aren’t sure whether or not you need to move a piece of furniture before your appointment, you can ask when scheduling or call back at any time.


Another thing to consider before your appointment is what to do with your pet while the carpet cleaner is in your home. All methods of carpet cleaning require some moisture, although Chem-Dry requires 80% less than steam cleaners, which means you won’t want to have your pet walking on it throughout the cleaning.

Also, carpet cleaners have to enter and exit your home many times throughout an appointment and sometimes prop the door open for a minute or two at a time. In order to be sure your pet doesn’t run out the door, you will want to keep it in your backyard or in a room that isn’t scheduled to be cleaned.

Champion Chem-Dry is happy to move most types of furniture during your appointment, and even offers upholstery cleaning as well. You will be happy to know that the Chem-Dry carpet cleaning methods is green-certified using all natural solutions that are completely harmless to pets and your family so your pet can be on your carpet again within 1-2 hours after the appointment when it is dry.
