  • Carpet acts as a huge filter, and by keeping it clean, you help keep the air cleaner in a home or business.
  • Hard surfaces that are unsealed or are sealed with poor quality sealers are a sponge for oil, food or beverage spills, which can result in permanent staining.

Tips To Prepare for Carpet Cleaning

Our staff strives to provide you with professional service and the highest-quality results each and every time we come to your home.  The following tips can help you prepare for your appointment.

We want your experience with Rainbow International to be positive and to leave your carpets in the best condition possible. If there is anything we can do to improve our services, please let us know at Attn: Jim Combs President

  • Please have smaller items picked up off the floor and move furniture out of the room if at all possible.
  • If you need our technicians to move furniture, please advise them of any special conditions to consider such as wobbly legs, loose tops, etc.
  • Please pick up any scraps of paper or large garbage that our vacuum won't pick up.
  • Please pin-up any full-length draperies so they will be at least six inches off the floor.
  • If you have skirting on upholstered furniture, please also pin-up so it will not touch the carpeting.
  • For stains, let the technician know any information you have on the cause.  This will help them to treat the stains with the most appropriate products and methods.
  • If you have a pet, it is best to have them in a safe and quiet place so they will not be disturbed by the cleaning process.
  • For pet odors, we will do all that we can to ensure success. However, please note that 100% elimination of the odor may not be possible depending on the degree of soiling.  You may also notice the odor for several days after cleaning if the humidity is high, referred to as "off-gassing."
  • Large furniture pieces such as China cabinets, sectional sofas, and entertainment centers cannot be moved.  However our technicians can effectively clean around the base.
  • Safety is of utmost importance, so we ask that you please keep an extra close eye on curious little ones.
