What a week – we rented a 4 cubic yard dumpster from the city and filled it with junk. Many boxes of books went to the library, and many boxes of clothes went to Goodwill. The house is actually starting to look decent. We realised we couldn’t possibly get it clean enough ourselves, so Thursday found me on the phone with carpet cleaners and cleaning services. Everything fell into place somehow; the carpet cleaner came Thursday to clean up the carpet going downstairs which was covered with bicycle grease, and it looks great. I got a cleaning service to come in Friday – they worked hard for 6 hours, but now the house looks great!
Even if we don’t sell, at least now I’ve got a really clean house.
