Taking a Bite Out of Cleaning-Giveaway

You have no idea how hard it is to get an old old old house clean.  When we moved in here the house was in it's 90's (age) and had carpet throughout.  With 5 dogs the first thing we did was pull up the carpet with hopes of finding some amazing floors underneath.  Well those hopes were dashed as it is some very rough looking wood.  

Then we laid tile squares in the living room and dining room so it would be pretty and easy to clean.  Of course the house is old and in a few years the tiles started to chip and pull up.  So I ended up pulling them all up too.  That made the floors even worse.  For now the sticky glue from the tiles grabbed every bit of dirt and dust that blew through the house.  

I still would like to have nice floors but know it will be a bit before I can paper bag them as I wish to do.  (Have you seen how pretty that looks?)  But in the mean time I deal with ugly floors.  Of course I sweep daily and try my best at cleaning them up.  

But now I have a secret weapon.  It will be striking terror into the deep dark grime I have been dealing with.  And it does a pretty good job considering how much glue and muck that is on the wooden floor to begin with.  This is what my floors look like first.  Yeah nothing pretty about this at all.

And now you see the difference being made due to my new Shark Sonic Duo.

Do you see the lightened area?  Well the Shark is getting through deep layers of grime.  I know you may not be able to see it but look at what was on the pad.

Pretty ick!  And you may not be able to tell but that portion of the floor is no longer icky with glue residue either.  Now I agree my floors are in horrid condition but I bet with time I can get them at least bearable and not so dirty by using my Shark.

Oh better yet.  Look at what it did to my carpet!  I had a awful brown dirt stain on it from the pets.

I used the spray to pretreat the carpet and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Then I started in using the Shark with the carpet cleaning pads on it.

See it coming clean!

And here it is with the stain completely gone!  I love it.

I put the used pad next to a new one so you could see the ick it took out of my carpet.  Pretty good work.

Now for the better news.  I have my own Shark Sonic Duo and I have one to give away!  I am using the Rafflecopter below for you to enter with.  But let me tell you about what you have a chance to win.

    1. Jessica,

      I have dirt that comes up from under my house into my living room and such. There are small gaps between the floor boards that leak in the dirt. Honestly. Look and see if it is the same with yours. It is the age of the house.

  7. I would start with my entryway floor as it has old flooring and I am always scrubbing at it.

  8. I would actually use it at our church first. Our Sanctuary has had several spills recently and the padded pews really need a good cleaning. After that I would take it home and use it on my bedroom floor.

  9. I would actually start at our church. Our Sanctuary carpet needs a good cleaning and also the padded pews. After that I would take it home a clean my bedroom carpet and my laminate floors.
