Planning a move? If you’re like most people, you may have overlooked an important step in your pre-move preparation—even though there’s a reminder right under your toes!
It’s your carpet. Deep-cleaning your carpet can pay off in terms of peace of mind and more money in your pocket. So, if you plan to sell your home or move out of your apartment in the next few months, don’t forget to rent a Pawsitively Clean®
carpet cleaning machine to make sure your carpets are ready for moving day.
Here are five reasons to deep clean before your next move:
1. SELL FOR MORE
It’s the little details—like clear, sparkling windows and a clean, fresh carpet—that can make all the difference. In fact, experts often include carpet cleaning in their lists of easy, inexpensive ways to help maximize and maintain your home’s resale value.
2. SELL OR RENT MORE EASILY
Berber or shag…Oriental or plush…any carpet that looks cleaner and smells fresher becomes an asset that can help make your home more attractive to prospective buyers or renters.
3. AVOID “PHANTOM” STAINS
When liquids spill on your floor, they often penetrate the backing layer at the base of your carpet, where they can spread over a wider area. Worse, even after you’ve blotted up the surface spill, stains can seep through the carpet backing and padding and reappear near the edge of the spill—even days later. By deep cleaning down to the pad, you may be able to avoid unwelcome surprises later.
4. GET YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT BACK
No surprises here. Giving your carpets a professional-quality cleaning before you turn over the keys of your old apartment is a smart move. Removing dirt, stains, and odor from the carpets of every room can help ensure the return of your entire security deposit.
