Vacuuming before Carpet Cleaning is a crucial step in the process. I highly recommend Vacuuming prior to our teams arrival, if you opt out of having our team vacuum your carpet.
The reasoning behind vacuuming prior to having your carpet cleaned, is because it removes 80-90% of the dry soiling. The particles removed through vacuuming can consist of hair, dust, dry skin cells, etc. Vacuuming ahead of time simply makes your carpet cleaning the best cleaning that it can possibly be.
A vacuum that we utilize in our Rug Cleaning plant and on our Trucks is the Sanitaire Vacuum. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles as some of the other residential models out there, but it has very strong suction and simply removes more dry soiling than any other Vacuum I have used. You can find it on Amazon here.
