Carpet Cleaners Can Help You Sell Your Home

Aug 17, 2007
Aesthetics is the most important thing when a potential buyer is looking at your home to purchase and the cost of carpet is a major exspense to replace and can cause that potential buyer to walk away from your home.

The condition of your carpet tells the potential buyer how the house was treated and will weigh heavy on their minds as they decide if they are still interested in your house.

Pet odors can cause someone to plain out walk out and lose interest instantly, carpets can keep pet odors and other foul odors such a cigarette smoke and cooking odors.

A carpet cleaning company can help to get rid of these odors and should be completed prior to putting your home on the real estate market.

A quality carpet cleaner can also make your carpet look and feel years younger depending on its current condition which will also help sell the home by lifting the nap of the carpet and giving it a fresh look and feel.

Professional carpet cleaning can also revitalize the look of high traffic areas on your carpet.

Floors, cabinets , bath and kitchen are some of the most looked at factors when a potential buyer looks at a new home. Flooring is the most visible and massive of these and proper care and attention should be used to make sure that they are up to par before you let buyers see your home.

With the potential to have to spend an additional 10 to 20 thousand on carpet replacement your actions before they show up could mean the difference between making the sale at all, or getting the price you wanted for your home.

Most carpet cleaning companies also do upholstery cleaning and I would recommend that you use this service also so that the upholstery does not have any odors and also has a well kept look and feel.

A word of caution, be sure that if you allow steam cleaning of your carpet that they do a good job extraction the water after the job is completed. Your carpet should be dry in less than 8 hours at the longest. Leaving too much moisture in your carpet can cause mold and other health and odor problems. Most companies have advance extraction equipment and this will not be a problem as most carpet cleaning companies also do water damage restoration and are well aware of the problems with leaving carpet and fabrics wet or damp

The price is small compared to what you stand to lose by not taking the steps you need to to make sure that you do not have to tell the story about the one that got away. Use some common sense and spend a little now to save loads later.
