Ready to do some spring cleaning? At my house, spring cleaning usually means sorting through the million bottles of hair product in the bathrooms, donating my unworn clothes from the closet, and finally putting away our hats and gloves until next season. This year, I decided that it was time to go a little deeper and hire someone to do the carpets and floors. As a referral from a friend, I reached out to Zerorez and had them come to my house to see what they could do with my basement. I recently replaced the carpets in my stairwells and bedroom, so I thought it'd be pretty cool if the carpet in my basement was the same shade of white as the rest of the house - without a layer of dirt.
Luis from Zerorez showed up in the middle of the afternoon. Before getting started, he set up a demo at my kitchen table to show me the difference between the treated water that his company uses vs. regular tap water and how they attack dirts and oils differently. I was pretty impressed! And since my little guy loves science, Luis offered to set up the experiment again when B got off the bus. B LOVED it -- and I ended up making the two of them fruit smoothies as they bonded over the chemistry of pH levels and dirt.
In addition to the great customer service from the Zerorez rep, he put up a temporary door to keep the heat/AC inside my house and also placed bumpers on the corners/walls so that the machines and cords wouldn't scratch my paint.
The service to my carpets didn't take too long.... Honestly, I really didn't think my carpets were THAT dirty until Luis showed me these little furball-looking things that their machines had captured. All of the build up was GROSS!
While he was in the basement, I went ahead and asked him to clean a white cloth sectional that has seen better days. It's an Ethan Allen and I was always really careful about how I took care of it, but since it now has blue Gatorade stains on it, I thought I'd let Luis give it a shot. Not only did he get the blue sports drink stains out of the couch, but my son also drew with a black pen in several areas which he completely removed.
Luis then moved upstairs to my kitchen table and cleaned the upholstered seats. I don't know if this happens at your home, but we apparently have a shortage of napkins and paper towels in my house. You know, when you ask your kids to wipe the ketchup off their fingers and they can't find a napkin -- and you've told them over and over not to wipe their hands on their pants, so they just use the seat instead? Yeah, I have one of those. The seats look GREAT now -- but I'm not sure how long we can make it last! I think I'll be calling Zerorez again to get them on a schedule just for the upholstery!
