Oh yeah – I am the first to agree on the uck – if it were our home we would rip
out all the carpet and padding and strip and sand floors under and redo – and we
have done that before in a house we owned – not because of dogs but because of
old. however – in ne – its not a law – its a whim – and while the lady that
owns the house is awesome – she lives in wa state and the realty company that
takes care of it – only does something right before she comes to visit every
thats what they did when she came in november – and replaced the
shower – which was a blessing – right before we had 60 for dinner on
Thanksgiving Day – can we say I wasn’t happy…???
We just keep cleaning and cleaning -and – for a bit – its ok – we use a ton of
soap and scrub with a good carpet cleaner over and over – and also bleach – yeah
– and then rinse over and over – its a two day job at least – and then as soon
as someone walks on it – we are back where we were.
We even paid several
hundred dollars for a professional to come and clean it – and they did a
terrible job…worse than we could.
Zero odor – I have tons of it – it just won’t kill it – sighs -so – will see…
We are hoping to buy this one day – its 2100 sq ft per floor – a ranch style –
with 8 foot ceilings in the basement where my DH has his woodshop – so –
hopefully we can get it – sooner rather than later and just replace it ourselves
– which we have done before. My brother is a carpet layer by trade – and a very
good one – so – we would pay his airfare from Tucson – rent the tools – and just
Will keep watching for anyone elses ideas – at this point I will try anything –
I have been known to be so frustrated that I got on my hands and knees and
scrubbed with Ajax and chlorox with a brush…oh well…
Thanks gang – you are great!! Keep up the good work.
