Where the living room meets the tile:
Look at the difference in the kitchen tile!!
and the office, which despite using a carpet shampooer and many stain remover attempts on those pesky spots, I've never been able to get them up:
Hey, look, the carpet is pink in there. Wow.
So even though it was a bit pricey (well I guess it was, I've honestly never had a professional carpet/tile service clean my floors before), I think we'll get our money back when we sell because it is such a vast improvement over what we had. Now the trick will be keeping it looking beautiful between now and then. If you're curious, the tile cost $2.25 per square foot to clean and would've cost an additional 25 cents per square foot to seal as well, but since we aren't staying, I wasn't worried about that. Then he did each room for $29. He also gave me a 20% off first-time customer discount, so in all with tax we spent right at $500. That's what better to me than spending 3 months scrubbing my tile with a toothbrush. And that my friends is what a savings account is for. I'm a happy customer today.
