Prepping a Floor for Cleaning
Whether you’re cleaning carpet, concrete, linoleum or wood, you’ll need to prep the floor before bringing out your equipment. The first step is moving or removing furniture from the room as you see fit. For the cleanest floors, remove all furniture, noting its placement. You might want to make a quick sketch or take a photo of the room’s layout, especially if you are working in someone else’s home or business. Your next step is getting rid of any dust or debris that may be on the floors. Prep carpets with a good vacuuming to remove dust or dirt that may cling to the carpet when wet. When cleaning you only want to worry about stains and embedded dirt, not anything that could be removed with a simple vacuum. For wood floors, linoleum and concrete, sweep the floors before cleansing. You can also vacuum these floors to help remove dirt or sand. Use a soft head attachment to help prevent scratching. A final option for prepping hard surface floors is to use a hand blower which can easily blast away topical debris including dirt, hair or rubbish.

Be aware that while hard surface floors can dry fairly quickly, carpet can take up to twelve hours. Clients should be informed as they may need to adjust their plans in accordance.
