Whichever company cleaned the carpets before I moved in...either they didn't or they suck, possibly both. I think these carpets are 20+ years old and that's being polite. Wish I had a before pic, but I had low expectations for non-pro grade cleaners, so I didn't take one. Boy, I'm regretting it now!
If you're a DIYer and want clean(er) carpets, this Bissell did an incredible job. I picked it up at Lowes for $90 plus pre-treater for $6 and a bottle of cleaning solution for $12. That's about the price of a one-time cleaning by a professional company...just not the company who did these.
I sprayed the pre-treatment first and left it on for 15 minutes, then cleaned according to Bissell's directions using the cleaning solution. I finished with a second pass using a hot water/fabric softener mixture. The carpet is soft, brighter and smells like moonlight breeze Even the high traffic areas are clean. Maybe I'll actually go barefoot now.
