But things sure look great now! Brother Reid (@ Environment Control of Albuquerque) offers a number of cleaning services to commercial accounts and one of them is carpet cleaning. I asked if he'd do the Roadrunner and he didn't hesitate.
It was a bit of an education for me. It was a small job but still took the heavy duty equipment.
Then the cleaning began. First some carpet spray over all the area to get it wet and loosen up things. And he applied some professional solution to the spots he could see. He recommended a white rag and some Windex for future spot removals.
Then just the steady back and forth of the water/vacuum system.
He did a great job on ours and we were very satisfied with how it came out. He raked it to get the knap up
and we used an industrial fan to dry it out. That took a couple of hours. While it dried, we cleaned up the equipment and got it ready to load back up into the truck.
And emptied the cleaner receptacle into a five gallon bucket.
It was a bit of a shock to think they were that dirty. But having never been really cleaned, the carpets were really dirty. Glad we got that done. Don't think we will wait so long for the next carpet cleaning.
Later on, we took a change of pace and had dinner with Reid and Amy at a 'mom and pop' cafe (the best kept secret in Albuquerque) not far from their house. Let me tell you --- if you like New Mexican food at reasonable prices, I highly recommend this place. You won't be disappointed!
Thanks for joining today on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
