Today's tip is short and sweet.
Before you move in, or as soon as possible thereafter
Clean Your Carpets!
I don't care if you have them professionally done,
or if you do it yourself.
But do it. Really.
Who knows what goes on in someone else's house?
or on their floors?
Between pets, kids, and everything under the sun ... chances are your carpets have been exposed to all manner of bodily fluids, plus God knows what before you moved in.
