DIY Carpet Cleaning...

Cleaning the carpets in your home.

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.


We also rented a steam cleaner from our grocery store. Renting a good one seemed like a better idea than buying a cheap one.

 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.
After
 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.
