I am hoping to put my house up for sale soon. (My personal deadline was February 2012. I've seem to have missed it a bit!) There are really only 2 'big' tasks to do. The carpet in my living room needs to be cleaned. The other rooms are fine. And my house needs to be power washed. I power washed my house a few years ago and it took ALL DAY. And I was so very sore. Well, I was looking on Groupon. I can get carpet cleaning for 3 rooms for $49. It will cost me that to rent the machine and buy shampoo!! I can get my house power washed for $69. I'm pretty sure I paid more than that to rent the machine. (At least it was pretty darn close!) So, I'm thinking why in the world would I waste my time doing these things- that I'm not skilled at- when I can pay someone to do it for me for about the same cost!!! I have researched both companies and they seem to have really good reviews. The power washing company has a great Facebook page with a ton of pictures and lots of positive comments. Have any of you bought services through Groupon? What were your experiences like?
