Note to Self: Take Better Care of the Carpets
By reading the title you probably already know what this post is about. While making all sorts of upgrades to the inside of the building, we came to realize that we have neglected the carpet quite a bit. This is especially bad since we’ve had so much foot traffic lately while trying to fix everything up. I suppose maybe if we had kept up with the carpet then we wouldn’t need professional cleaners to come out – but it’s bad this time.
First things first, we need to get rid of some of the carpet that’s in the areas that people walk about after people in the lot, and also around the shop area. These areas track in lots of dirt, oil, and grease from outside, and you can really see it taking a toll on the carpet (and you can smell it too). It’s kind of strange how fast it all happened, but I guess that’s what we get for not paying attention.
Anyway, the problem does seem bad enough to call in the heavy guns like carpet cleaning alexandria va. I wish it could be easy enough for us to just go rent a cleaner from the local store but it doesn’t seem possible. Hopefully I can find a company to come out and give us an estimate so that I know what we are working with. I’m assuming the price will be several hundred, but parts of the building are starting to smell like the ground outside and trying to cover up the smell isn’t working too well.
In the areas that we do remove the carpet from, we will likely be placing some nice tiles down in places. Something strong and durable that looks modern and classy at the same time.
