Cost her a pretty penny. But I see now that to do this she had to take up the new carpet, let them work, and dig up the interior foundation the whole perimeter of the house, put in a channel, concrete over everything again and then wait for the concrete to set and then call in the carpet people to put down new tack strips and restretch the carpet.
We discovered all of this by seeing new concrete all around and then my husband and looked up our paperwork from the sale to discover what exactly it all meant. At least I haD this paperwork. We have no history for nearly everything else. Like, there is evidence of there being either glue down tile or glued down carpeting in the basement from before. It was cleaned off very well, but it has a stain of where the glue used to be. Is that asbestos? Was it removed properly if it was? Who knows! So weird when you think about it that all the history of the house does not need to be disclosed when you buy and sell. It's a huge investment done mostly with little known about the investment!
What does this have to do with weight loss? Well, I scraped up foam, wet/dry vac'ed the entire area, and then scrubbed it all with a thick bristled brush. The boys took up the tack strips and deal with the nails in the concrete. Oh, and my husband and I moved all the furniture and boxes and boxes of stuff from one side of the room to the other, so a lot of schlepping of stuff too. Day two of exercise with a purpose!
Scale loved me this morning too!
