When it comes time to sell your house, it’s natural to relive the memories you’ve made there – that time breakfast in bed toppled to the floor, the months you spent puppy training, bub’s painting project that didn’t quite stay on the page. Life’s messy, and many of the memories we make in our homes spell wear and tear for our poor old carpets. While potential buyers understand this, they’re also far more likely to buy a home with fresh clean carpets. Here’s why:
A clean slate
A new home represents a fresh start for a family, and newly-cleaned carpets are the perfect way to present a blank canvas to potential buyers. The feel, look and smell of clean carpets let potential buyers know that the home is ready to move into, creating not only a welcoming feeling but a sense of urgency, too!
A healthy home
If you’ve ever let your vacuuming slide for a few days, you’ll know just how much dust and dirt can accumulate in a short period of time. In order to avoid putting off a potential buyer with odours – or worse, allergies and asthma – it’s essential to put your best rug forward.
Vacuuming isn’t enough
When we live with a carpet day in, day out, we tend to forget what colour it once was – until we move furniture, and it comes flooding back! A professional carpet clean can work wonders to restore your floors to their former glory, helping them to appear more evenly coloured and worn, and feel more plush, projecting a greater sense of value.
Investing in the services of a quality, professional carpet cleaner when you’re moving home will bring cleanliness and luxury to your home, ensuring potential buyers can see themselves enjoying many years of their own thrills – and spills – there.
