Refreshing The Carpets After Doggy Staycation

When you live on your own, or with someone staying over only on a rare occasion, it can be very easy to slip into the same old habits.  If the carpet or floors don’t feel sticky, then they’re clean.  I tend to leave things now until I’m pretty sure a visitation is imminent.   That is not the way a clean house should be cared for and I jolly well know it.  When I do need to have the place sparkling and welcoming, I do then make a real effort.  I do some heavy duty vacuuming – not only the carpet areas, but around the skirting boards and behind the suite and cabinets.  This autumn though I needed more than my efforts could achieve.  I’d had some dogs staying for a summer break, and the regular vac hadn’t removed enough of the muddy remnants.  I got in a brilliant cleaning company who very quickly and obligingly refreshed my carpets and saw to the skirting too.  It looked fantastic and smelt even better.
