I was a bit concerned that the real estate agent is going to want us to replace the carpet if he looks at it as it is now, so I decided to spruce up the carpet with some manual labor.
First I saw this post on pinterest about using a squeegee to get hair up out of the carpets. It works GREAT! I’m so impressed. Holy cow though, it was a lot of work! And why does our vacuum suck… or not suck…
Here’s the carpet…
|If you vacuum first, you don’t get quite as impressive amount of hair out of the carpet.|
Vacuumed first, then used the squeegee on the carpet, then went crazy with the steam cleaner.
|Before, with a necessary drink to help smooth the cleaning process.|
I’m pretty happy with the results. It’s funny how old a carpet looks when it hasn’t been cleaned well in a while. I love steam cleaning… although it’s way easier to pay someone else to do it and the price isn’t much more if you find those mailing coupons.
