Clean carpets...

Although our carpets weren't dirty, it had reached the point of a slight stale smell in the morning if a window wasn't left slightly open every night! A similar smell could be detected when laying down to exercise.

Yesterday we removed freestanding furniture from the kichen, hall, lounge and conservatory and vacuumed throughout.

It took an hour from start to finish then we went out for a few hours to leave them to dry a little. On our return we lit the fire in the lounge and kept the heating on. I think overnight, we shall have to leave some windows safely locked open, to let some of the condensation out!

By tomorrow hopefully, they should all be dry enough to get furniture back in. Personally I think it pays to clean carpets annually or biannually to keep them maintained and in as good a condition as possible.


  1. We had a lot of problems with condensation/damp last winter. I've been using moisture catchers which were 69p each in Poundstretcher this winter and haven't had any problems at all. I think having the heating on for an hour in the morning has helped too.

    1. Not so bad here either although our heating has been on more, set at 18C. Showing our age as only a few years ago, we could get through winter on 14C! We have a Karcher window sucky up gadget, very good.

  2. I agree with you about keeping the carpets regularly vacuumed and cleaned, it adds years to their life !
