Professionally Cleaned Carpet
You may think of carpet cleaning as an activity you only have to take care of when something goes actively wrong. You spill something, a new pet has not yet discovered their ideal bathroom area, or the carpet is simply getting older. But in reality, engaging professionals can also be an advantage when your home is on the market. In fact, here are 3 reasons carpet cleaning can help to sell your Sycamore, IL home.
1) Improving First Impressions
Make no mistake: a professionally cleaned carpet will significantly improve potential buyers’ first impressions as they tour your home. A stain in the wrong spot can quickly turn buyers off, as they begin to think about what may have caused it. A freshly-cleaned carpet, on the other hand, helps keep that first impression positive.
2) ‘That Musty Smell’
Even if nothing obvious stands out negatively about your home as buyers walk in the door, carpets that haven’t been cleaned in a while almost always begin to take on their own scent. You may not even smell it, as you’ve simply gotten used to it, but potential buyers will be much more attuned to it. They may not know where ‘that musty smell’ is coming from, but they’ll be negatively affected either way.
3) Reducing Post-Purchase Expenditures
Finally, cleaning your carpet – and telling potential buyers about it – can reduce the anxiety of homebuyers who are worried about spending money on the home after moving in. If they know that they don’t have to worry about the carpet, they can focus their efforts on the other, positive aspects of your house.
In short, a professional carpet cleaning can help to sell your home, and provide a positive return on investment. So if you live in the Sycamore, IL area and are looking to put your home on the market, contact us.
