2 large dogs, a boyfriend, 2 sons one 10years and one infant plus a very wet winter, equals muddy floors and dirty carpet. Let me start by saying I am a clean freak and a house full of boys with drive anyone crazy, resolve has helped keep me sane. I probably steam clean my carpet once and week and spot clean as needed. So much dirt comes up it is amazing and to top it off that orange soda I said wasn't allowed in the living room even came out of the carpet. Can you say miracle.
