We Were Cleaning Carpet in Clear Lake Shores a Few Weeks Ago
It started out as a normal cleaning like every other day. We called before showing and then approached the door with cautious. This house looked like it was straight out of the Adams Family. It was filthy with moss, algae, and rust overtaking the trees and house.
As we entered the home, the heavy doors were slowly closed behind us. Glancing across the foyer and into the depths of this overwhelmingly ginormous home, we began discussing what brought us in, carpet cleaning. The home’s interior was immaculate with carved wood furnishing sitting on top of intricate Persian rugs. It didn’t look like dust existed in this house. The lady of the house took us up the winding stairway upstairs to show us what needed cleaning.
Upon our conversation she quickly apologized for the heinous view outside and blamed her husband for it. This client was extremely particular and meticulous having all of her interior perfectly arranged and cleaned to the bone. In fact she mentioned how she had the maid in with ladders to make sure every bit of dust was removed to prevent her allergies from flaring up. But her words were true when she said, the carpet was one thing she couldn’t keep up with.
We had been called out for carpet cleaning in this Clear Lake Shores home. Specifically she wanted seven bedrooms, a dining area, two enormous walk-in closets and the stairs steam cleaned. These stairs were different from any other set that we had cleaned in the past though because they had a rug stapled to wood straight down the middle of the twisting steps. She also wanted all of the furniture moved to ensure every bit of dust was removed.
I was glad it was early in the morning because this job was big and likely to take most of the afternoon to complete. This client showed me a few rust stains from the antique furniture as well as some areas where dirty mop water had splashed out of a bucket onto the carpeting.
With enthusiasm, I was happy to reassure my client that we would take care of all the dust, mop water, and rust that she had. We agreed on a price as I do with every client and began the work. First things first, we vacuum. Upon moving the furniture pieces, we found what she was talking about. Piles of dust rolled out with the slight air movement and we got it sucked up into the yellow Dyson. What was weird was that a lot of hair was found. We later discovered pictures, this lady had trained large white Great Pyrenees dogs and won competitions.
So the weird parts of this was the house and how everything looked but I forgot to mention to you that this lady herself was very interesting. She had animal tattoos all over her body and kept a small ranch in back of the house where she trained horses, dogs, and even a few large cats. She stood tall but with a small frame running around her house without shoes looking like an ice skater.
The biggest surprise was that she lived in such a small area near the city. It must have been easy to find a carpet cleaner near Clear Lake Shores. We were happy to have done the work. For such an odd atmosphere the client’s home gave off, she sure was considerate, thorough, and inviting. We got everything packed up and rolled out by mid afternoon.
