How To Estimate Areas For Cleaning
When requesting carpets to be cleaned, you will be asked how many “areas” are to be cleaned. It is good to know that an area can be different to a rooms. When calculating the amount to be cleaned, this is a rough guide to areas. This can vary from business to business. At Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning in Brisbane, this is a basic guide as to how we judge how to fairly charge for carpet cleaning services.
- Bedrooms including walk-in wardrobes = 1 area
- Lounge room = 1 area
- Dining room – 1 area
- Combined Lounge/Dining = Generally a unit/apartment is considered 1 area, a house is considered 2 areas. This can vary.
- Hallway = 1 area
- Landing/small area outside bedrooms = 1 area
- Stairs = 1 area
If you’re not sure if a particular area in your house that is carpeted falls under this guide, it’s always good to ask. When it comes to combined/open plan areas, whether you will be charged for one or two areas is dependant on size. A small unit with a combined lounge/dining area the size of a regular house’s lounge room wouldn’t be charged as 2 areas.
We hope this guide has been helpful to you. The next time you need to book in for carpet cleaning you should be confident in what to answer when asked.
