Stairway carpets are often overlooked. They can be difficult to clean, requiring special attachments and technique to clean properly. However, they are perhaps the most trafficked area of your house.
Here are some tips on how to prepare your stairs for a Professional Carpet Cleaner.

Well-vacuumed stairs also make it easier carpet cleaning pros to create accurate estimates. Stairs that haven't been vacuumed in a while look dirtier than they really are, so it makes it more difficult to estimate how much time is required to clean them properly.
Clear the Way. Move your furniture and breakables out of the way. Console tables, framed pictures, knick knacks on stairway shelves - removing these makes it easier for the carpet cleaner to maneuver with equipment. Which prevents accidents and cuts down on the time it takes to clean the stairs.
Free Up a Parking Spot. With so much equipment, it's helpful if the carpet cleaner can park as close as possible to your home. If you can, free up a spot on your driveway.
Check Your Pets. Make sure your pets are not in the way. Take them for a walk or keep them in the yard while the carpet cleaner works on your stairs.
