almost like Christmas...

Why is getting carpet cleaned so satisfying? For me it's almost like Christmas, it's fresh, clean and it makes me feel good inside! I am weird, I realize this. Two years ago I hired Stanley Steamer, and I was put off that they actually hooked something up in my toilet... YUCK. They said it was for draining, but there's no getting around the psychological imprint that left on me. Toilet water + my carpet. GROSS. So I searched for a less gross way to clean this time, and found these people. They're a family owned business and they're SUPER! I'm so pleased! It's green cleaning; no chemicals, 100% organic, it's pet, child and allergy friendly. The neatest part is it was dry when they were done, they use this powder like sponge stuff to clean with. Our carpet looked brand new when they left, and I was able to get a small bucket of the sponge cleaner for small spills/spots, it should last some time. They will refill it for free everytime I have them here to clean carpets. So as silly as it may be - I took before/after photos - will upload them later and send a link to our photo sharing site. I'm serious about clean floors - so I was super happy!

I am so with you on this. We pulled up old carpet to install laminate in our first house. It was so gross underneath!!! When we moved this time, I specifically requested to see houses with hardwood! Carpet feels much nicer under the feet, but I always feel like it's dirty too. Anyway . . . glad the cleaning worked out better this time!

The toilet thing would psychologically scar, me, too.
