If you entertain a lot during the holiday season I’m sure you like to make sure your home is clean from top to bottom. After all, our homes are a reflection of ourselves. The last thing you want your holiday guests to see are cobwebs, sticky counter tops and a dirty carpet.
I know all about keeping my home in tip top shape. Our home is too small to entertain the way I’d like to, but I still need to keep it clean because it’s currently on the market and someone might want to cover over and see it at any time. I like a clean home but having it THIS CLEAN on a daily basis takes a lot of work. I’ll be happy when I can slack off a little here and there. 🙂
We have five cats and a dog. We also have carpeting in two of the rooms (bedroom and living room). It never fails that whenever someone has a hairball to toss up, or when someone ate too quickly and needs to throw up, it’s always on the carpet. Why can’t they do this on the flooring which is so much easier to clean up. Even worse is when our dog has an upset tummy and get diarrhea. He usually has an accident in the hallway which is easy to clean up (but the smell does go out into the main hallway in our condo building). Once in a while he does “miss” and ends up going on the carpet. That is the worse! It’s almost impossible to clean up.
As a result we now own a carpet cleaning machine. We try and use it once a month or once every other month, depending on what we’ve put our carpet through. Even without our pets making a mess of the carpet it’s always nice to give it a good wash from time to time because even people can make a carpet dirty. You’d be shocked if you saw how much dirt your shoes drag into your home and eventually into your carpet. That dirt and grim piles up causing your carpet to look dirty and dull. You really should clean your carpets from time to time, even if it’s just a couple of times per year.
You can have your carpets professionally cleaned, but that can cost a lot of $$$. Unless you have the need and the funds to buy your own unit (not to mention the storage space) I would recommend renting a unit. It’s a lot cheaper and you don’t have to worry about where to put it when you are done. You simply bring it back to the place you rented it from.
