Carpet Dance round two

Monday, February 04, 2013

Well, for such a dirty carpet, I should have known it wouldn't be THAT easy. emoticon Last night I noticed some large spots resurfacing. I pretreated two of them and went on to bed. This morning I was at it again...using a mostly hot water solution this time. It is astonishing how much dirt is coming up (embarrassing to see that much crud in my rug!) At the moment, the carpet is still pretty wet, but the machine won't pick up any more I must wait for the dry environment and woodburning stove to dry things out. It looks better and better.

Lesson from all this...I need to DO this more often. I kept putting off professional cleaning for a variety of reasons..too hot (no ac in summer...and right in front of the stove in winter), too cold, too expensive, no time to be home.
I am SURE a professional cleaning SOON would be wise (can't afford it right now), but in the meantime, I will continue to spot clean...AND I think I will keep doing Carpet Dance cleaning more frequently.

DH says we will need to replace this rug when Miss Daisy leaves us..but that could still be some years. Till then, I have my dancing cut out for me! emoticon
