GRRRR. Its been a month from hell with our carpet. Let me just note…. our house is 90% wood floors… the only room that is carpeted is the playroom and we have area rugs in the boys room and in the living room.
I hate carpet.
We always said when we moved the first thing we’d do is replace all the carpet with wood or Pergo. And lucky us, our house is almost completely wood. I’ll bet you that soon will be 100% wood.
Let me back it up. See, when we moved in the playroom carpet was kind of yuck, but it was fine for now. Then one of the dogs were left in the house too long and peed in the playroom. (WHY not the kitchen which is ceramic tile???) We tried and tried to clean it up with no avail. So we replaced the carpet with a remnant that Ry’s dad had.
$50 for the pad
$75 to install the carpet
Ahhh… life is good. Fresh, new, clean carpet.
A week later someone wet their pants in the playroom leaving a nice pee puddle. Then one of the dogs started sniffing it out and peed next to it. So my entire living room and playroom stunk like pee. GRR. I have a super sensitive nose and it drove me CRAZY. We used cleaner after cleaner (even professional odor eliminator from my grandma) and still weeks later it still reeked of pee (probably b/c the pee was down in the pad).
So on Monday we had the carpet cleaned (by Breezy Clean Carpets in Jackson… I recommend them– super cheap $25/room!!). And within 2 days my carpet was fresh and clean and non stinky.
And then tonight… that damned Zoey went in there and PISSED on the same “marked” spot AGAIN! Luckily we got to it right away but I can guarantee you I’ll still be able to smell pee. My nose is so dang sensitive.
I give up. If the pee smell is still there next week, we’re just going to have to rip out the carpet and put down wood. I’m so over carpet. I hate hate hate carpet!!
