When I first moved in here, I noticed the carpet had some ugly and large stains on it.
Now that I'm moving out, I need to get the carpet steam cleaned.
The property manager requires a receipt as proof.
I'll have it done, but after eight and a half years, the already old and worn carpet is even more worn and not looking so good.
In spite of me trying various spot cleaners, the stains remain.
The footpaths around items of furniture and from room to room are very trodden down.
I'm not sure they'll ever be revived.
I'm fairly sure this is the original carpet, installed when the unit was built.
Sometime around 300BC.
I've also noticed, over the last eight and a half years, that this particular carpet, doesn't like to let go of its dirt. I can vacuum for hours in multiple directions, and still have to crawl around afterwards on my hands and knees picking up bits that cling to the carpet.
For these reasons I am very, very, grateful that there is no carpet in the new flat.
Moving on......I've emailed a cleaning crew to give me a quote on an end-of-lease clean.
I found out which company my property managers have used and liked in the past and decided to use them.
This way the required standards should be met.
(I want my bond money back!)
I didn't ask for details about the service, whether or not they include such things as steam cleaning of carpet, washing windows, cleaning exhaust fans etc.
I'm hoping they do include those things.
I'll send another email and ask, because if they don't include these things, I'll be washing the windows myself, and I so don't want to.
