Has anyone here any experience of these? Looking into this as a possible Plan B.

I would have thought most households have installed hard wood flooring so not sure this would be a viable Plan B.

Many moons ago a man came round with a van with a huge carpet cleaning machine built into a van.

Allowed him to clean a whole house top to bottom very quickly compared to the usual domestic carpet cleaners.

I would expect the machine cost a few bob.

Not a very exciting prospect, cleaning people's stinking carpets mind. Unless you are just going buy a suite of these and hire immigrants on min wage to do the dirty work.

Carpet cleaning is extremely hard work.

Domestic Cleaning Agency - good residual income - don't get yer hands dirty.

My mate used to fix the cleaners, says much of the business is going into old peoples homes to clean up the gallons of pish that get soaked into the carpets each week.

An ex-girlfriend's dad was a social worker. At an old people's home he visited there was always an uncommon(?) stink of pee, emanating from a cushion left on a radiator.
Transpired one old dear would take her seat in the TV room for the day and to avoid having to walk to the toilet and lose her spot, would sit on a cushion, allowing her to take a leak at her leisure. Then she'd dry it overnight. :frown

Upon moving into a house once decided to change carpets. When they came up they stank of cat pee. Looks like the cat just peed on the carpet.....
