Carpet flooring cleaned is better when moving in, or after move-out
By far, the best time to get your carpet flooring cleaned is either prior to moving in, or after move-out. The steam cleaning process is much more effective without having to work around heavy furniture. In most situations, it is impractical and more expensive to move heavy furniture. As a general rule - anything over 50 lbs. becomes more burdensome - although we prefer to use furniture moving sliding plates, which facilitate this step.
When it comes to moving heavy items such as bed, couches, loveseats, etc., it is possible to slide them out of the way, steam clean underneath, and place them back in their original position.
