How to Prepare for Your Hardwood Floor Cleaning Appointment

When having B Clean Professionals over to clean your hardwood floors, there are a few things you'll need to do to prepare for our visit.

Move All Furniture Off the Floors

For the most part, we require that everything is removed from the floors that are to be cleaned. You are absolutely welcome to move all your furniture from your space. However, we will happily do this for you if needed at an additional fee.

If we are moving your items for you, we’ll ask you to remove any breakables, décor, or other special items from your furniture prior to our arrival. This ensures that none of your valuables are accidentally bumped during the moving process.

It’s also important to have a space prepared for us to place the furniture that is to be moved. We can always clean around some large and heavy pieces of furniture, but it’s important to understand that there will be a difference in appearance between the cleaned and uncleaned floors if you ever decide to move those furniture pieces in the future.

Move Rugs, and Keep Them Stored Away for 10+ Days

We will also roll up and remove any area rugs. What’s important for homeowners to know here is that you shouldn’t replace the area rugs for at least 10 days after the cleaning is finished. We can of course always help you with cleaning your area rugs during this time as well!

Find Your Pets (and People) a Comfy Place Far Away

All pets should stay away from the cleaned area for at least 2 hours once the process has been completed. No one should even walk on the treated floors for at least 2 hours after we’re done, but we actually recommend a whole day. We understand that it’s an inconvenience, which is why it’s always voluntary, but we do believe you should give your floors about 24 hours before walking on them after the cleaning process.

Let Us Know Issue Areas Prior to Cleaning Appointment

We highly suggest that you let our cleaning specialists know about any areas of concern you have during your inspection, or at least prior to cleaning. This way, we can make sure we are maximizing our efforts and are on the same page in terms of any problem areas. This will also include informing the specialists about any kind of installation problems or issues with your hardwood floors, which is important because it will require extra precautions to be taken by us.
