Anyone ever had someone come in and do a thorough cleaning of the carpets and furniture in their rig?
We regularly go to an RV park in Colorado that often is windy. And the soil seems to have the consistency of talcum powder. Blowing dust gets into and onto everything. I regularly clean the carpets with our Hoover steam vac. It does a good job on the carpets and ends up with a tub full of mud. But no doubt the cloth on the furniture is also full of that same dust. Would like to have someone with the proper equipment do a good cleaning on it all.
Suggestions?

I have a great service that cleans everything on a regular basis inside my camper. They go by the name DW.

I'm sure a regular residential steam cleaning service can tackle the carpets and upholstery just fine...

Check locally for 'Merry Maid' or any residential cleaning service.
RV no different than a house.

We used a company called Dri-Chem. They were 1/3 the price of Stanley Steemer and did an excellent job. They are a mobile service and come to you. If you have them in Texas, I would highly recommend them.

I take care of everything outside the rv and the cab inside. My wonderful wife takes care of the inside and I mean TAKES CARE. Our rv is almost 8 yrs old and if I do say so it looks like new inside and out.

My DW hired a a guy from DH General Contracting. The guy works for nothing, does as he's asked or told, and you never hear a peep out of him. I heard he tried to suggest something once and almost got fired so he keeps to himself and has that RV in immaculate shape. She even figured out how to get him to travel to the CG, park the rig, get it all set up, and then cook! She found a workhorse for sure!!!

Nobody does it better....than my girl. Seems like she is always cleaning something. I think we have three vacuums, including the built-in.

God only knows how bad it would be without her here.....

We used Stanley Steemer when we were leaving Florida every spring and they did an excellent job.
