My appointment was set between 8 am and 930am. They arrived at 815am ready to go. I had moved most of my furniture before they arrived. But when they got here, they set up right away, made sure they were parked in an appropriate spot, and then took care to protect my home with wall corner protectors, mat covers, etc. They asked me which trouble spots to focus on, asked about any concerns i had before they started cleaning. They moved the furniture as they cleaned and set up the legs on blocks of foam so it would allow for proper drying while your furniture stood on top. In the past, when I used Sears Carpet cleaning, they said they would clean around the furniture. If you book online, Stanley Steemer offers 10% discount. They also leave you with a bottle of carpet cleaner as well as extra foam stoppers for any other furniture that you would like to move back into place once they are done.
The prices between Stanley Steemer and Sears carpet cleaning are comparable - maybe a 30 dollar difference - but the fact that Stanley steemer will move your furniture, provide you the materials to protect your furniture and give you a bottle of carpet cleaning afterwards makes it worthwhile. They also come in a team of two to help make the job faster. I would definitely use Stanley Steemer again in the future.
