We bought Stimpy from a dealer in Virginia. Although we’re very happy with Stimpy, especially on how he performed excellently on getting us to Oregon, we weren’t satisfied with the dealer on many things. Dirty carpet is one of them.
Stimpy’s carpet was quite dirty since we took the ownership. Cleaning it has been on our to-do list for a while. While Stimpy’s carpet wasn’t in a great shape (think 10 year-old carpet) plus we’d like to replace it with something that is more cleanable, we won’t be doing any replacement until next spring.
We rented a carpet cleaning machine for a day from Thriftway, a local grocery store in Welches, Oregon. It took us only a few hours one afternoon for cleaning.
I took some before-and-after photos hoping for visual improvement. To my disappointment, they didn’t appear to show much difference. However, the dirty cleaning liquid that the machine extracted was confirming to us that the carpet was being cleaned….at least cleaner than it was.
And no, I didn’t take photos of the dirty cleaning water.
