My job is closed today. My bosses and some of my co-workers went on a field trip to the FABTECH Expo in Chicago at McCormick Place . I opted not to go. My Friday, which is usually my day off, or the day I work overtime, will be spent at work, working a full ten hour shift. Yuck!
So, I decided to try out my ‘new to me’ Electrolux Epic carpet shampooer I found at Goodwill on Saturday.
I am very happy with how this carpet has held up. I’m sure millions of steps have been taken around this pool table (and the one before this one) in those years, with pool players, and 13 years of giggly quilters meeting once a month, as we use the pool table (with a piece of plywood on top) as a cutting table. The carpet shows absolutely no wear. I guess we chose well when we picked a commercial grade carpet and short pad. I’m sure it being installed on top of cement, where there is no ‘give’ in the floor has helped it wear well too, as there is no stretching.
I’m very pleased with the shampooer, and the carpet. It only took a few hours of my time, and the ‘much dreaded’ job is now finished. It should be dry in a few hours.
