I wasn’t initially impressed with the maids cleaning a rental today because I was vacuuming up so much stuff after they vacuumed. Then I saw them steaming the hard surface floors with a Shark and a heavy cotton mitt and was suitably impressed. After they left I went to pee in one of their freshly cleaned toilets and found a blob of hair in front of it.
I’m so conflicted.

I've had to stop using Encap on my DR Horton homes. The red dirt on light grey carpet just didn't flush out. HWE only now at those locations.

Has my Georgia clay made its way to the west coast? No more carpet buffing?
The red dirt is a very California thing. Especially in the gold filled area. Filled with iron and broken dreams. What you have out there in Georgia is what happens to dirt when there is no indoor plumbing.

These DR Horton homes are all newly built houses. The yards have no improvements and are just bare red dirt. The workmen have no concept of clean shoes when they enter the homes. Padding just wasn't cutting it. I had to return three times due to "Red Tint" in the carpet. HWE is the process required for those. Doesn't mean I will stop doing encap. Just not there.

Just mix a little bubbly bubbles peroxide in your juice to break up that red iron so you can rinse it out.
