I wish we had hard wood floors. We have old, worn out rugs in a hideous grey color. I recently got them shampooed. They look so much better. I wish I could get them cleaned about every 4-6 months but usually end up getting them done annually. It's expensive! How often do you do your rugs?

It is funny when we were young we did not have carpet just rugs scattered here and there. Then it became fashionable to have carpet everywhere.... guess what it is now fashionable to have wood flouring everywhere. It is like we have reinvented the wheel again! I guess people just do not like the labour intensive cleaning of carpets not to mention it is easier to clean wood flooring,

I have a rug shampooer. I wish I had one that steamed the carpets it would clean them even better. Our carpets are old as well and stained. I need to get rid of the one we have in our living room and replace it with a small throw carpet or whatever it's called.

I can't recall how long it's been since I had carpet. I had wall to wall in florida. I am wondering when you say rugs is that what you mean? becauce I have rugs around my unit now. I wash them a few times a year. But I have no shoes on them. If you mean wall to wall carpet I had it for a few years. I never needed it cleaned. I wore no shoes in it. I think it was the closest to white that some kind of cream could be. I hate on all levels carpet. But the room was beautiful so it let it be. There are huge machines now and the cleaners will clean a rug. If you have a gate out in the front or back yard. you could hang the rug and wash it that way. I am hoping I got that. take care.
