When to Clean and When to Replace Your Carpet

Cleaning Tips For Home Sellers

Cleaning Helps Increase SellsWhen a house is for sale, the goal is to make it as attractive as possible to potential buyers, and the most cost-effective way is a professional cleaning. Spruce up your home and clean it thoroughly.
 
Clean, Don’t Replace Carpet
Potential buyers might take one look at stained carpet and start running for the door. At a fraction of the cost for replacement, you can get the existing carpet in sellable condition quickly with a professional clean. Bishop Clean Care can save you money down the road by making what you have look its best while avoiding costly replacement or an allowance for new installation.
 
Time to Clean
Focus on the rooms buyers are most interested in – living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. Give major attention to the kitchen and bathrooms, but be sure to check labels on cleaning products to make sure they are appropriate for the surfaces to be cleaned. Kitchen floors often become cloudy from cleaning solution residue. To prevent this, use a no-rinse product or rinse the floors well after each cleaning.
 
Combat Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew are especially problematic in bathrooms, and prospective buyers are more sensitive than ever about its presence. If you are unsure whether to tackle this yourself, give Bishop Clean Care a call so we can point you in the right direction to keep your family safe.
 
Don’t Forget To…
–       Wash the windows.
–       Dust thoroughly.
–       Vacuum regularly, using long strokes.
–       Carefully clean surfaces to remove dust, grime and fingerprints.
–       Make a habit of making a nightly “sweep” just before bedtime to nix clutter build up.
