what did you dooooooo?

This is the carpet that was in the house when we moved's ugly, not soft and slightly stained. it still smells a little like old cigarettes even after 5 or 6 shampoos and one visit from Stanley Steemer.

This is the even ickier carpet that was UNDER the carpet above. As you can see it's disgusting...there are stains everywhere.

This lovely mess is what was under that carpet. It's some kind of tar-based carpet glue. Needless to say a serious mess! It took some work and a lot of time but Bob finally got it cleaned up enough to walk on.

Here it is in the soaking/scraping process. As you can tell there are hardwood floors underneath. Eventually we'll have all pretty hardwoods in the hall and living room. It's going to take a LOT of work.
