I moved into a new apartment in June and prior to my arrival the landlord didn't replace or (as far as I can tell) shampoo the carpet, which was new only a year before - previous tenants were pretty tidy but there are little stains in the entryway. The idea of a year's dust accumulated is bugging me, and I'd like to get it cleaned somehow. Tell me about YOUR carpet and decide my fate.
Does your home have carpet?
Giant rugs but they are removable for cleaning
I live in a hut with earthen floors
Do tatami mats count?
If you do have non-removable carpet at home, how do you clean it?
Sometimes I vacuum it
I hire a carpet cleaning pro
I rent a Rug Doctor or similar machine
I own a shampooer/steam cleaner
I bought one of those wacky Rainbow systems and I swear I don't regret it, no really
I just replace it frequently
Do you even care about a clean carpet?
Terrible allergies, so yeah
Dog owner, so most definitely
Dog owner, so don't bother
HOW should I solve my carpet dilemma?
Buy a machine I don't have room to store in this tiny apartment
Rent a machine even though that means not cleaning under any furniture
Just leave it, it's only dust. And spider legs. And nuclear fallout.
Sprinkle with Carpet Fresh and pretend it's clean
