When the Kirby team comes a knockin' on your door during the most possible stressful part of your day...let them in. Don't deny them the opportunity to clean your house. Why you may ask, well let me give you a couple good reasons.
1-I sat on my couch for nearly 3 hours while my house was cleaned...for free...by someone other than myself
2-Oh it's very entertaining to listen to the sales pitch and watch them work their magic
You may be thinking, "Still not worth it. I'd rather vacuum my own carpet than have to listen to a sales pitch."
You may want to re-think your opinion. This is how our afternoon went yesterday:
"Can we clean your carpet for free?"
"We don't have all day to listen and we won't buy what you're pedaling."
"No prob. Just let us clean your carpet."
"Let's start with this spot on your floor."
"WOW! That looks fantastic! Can you clean all these spots?"
"WOW! That looks fantastic! Can you dust with it too?"
"WOW! The tv looks fantastic."
"The bookshelf looks fantastic! The tv armoire looks fantastic! The pictures look fantastic! The drapes look fantastic! The windowsills look great. The track from the sliding glass door is sparkling! What? It works in the kitchen too?"
"Holy Moly! All that came from under and behind my fridge? Wow, this even degreased all this junk from my stove? My floor looks as good as new now!"
"And it works on window screens too."
"Let's go try! Wowsers, you're right, Kirby Man! My screens look incredible!"
"It also does wonders on mattresses. You know that dust mites grow and die in your mattress, right?"
"Let's take a look. Whoo-hoo! My mattress looks brand new! Thanks for ridding us of all our dust mites. Can you do the pillow top mattress too? Looks wonderful! How about the mattress in the back room? Fantastic! Another brand new looking mattress!"
"Now let's get to that floor in the front room. Let's start by vacuuming it. Now I'll shampoo and clean it for you."
"THANKS! Our house looks amazzzzzing! We really appreciate it!"
So let's recap...Tyler & I hung out and entertained the dudes for a couple hours, fixed up a nice little glass of ice-water, and in return we got some serious spring/summer cleaning...for free.
Now you tell me...was it worth it? HECK YES!
I'm sure the burning question now in your mind is of course..."DID YOU BUY IT???"
Of course not. We already own a Kirby :)
(which by the way was purchased on craigslist for 1/4 the price the salesman ask)
As they say in "The Office"...You do the math.
