Today my husband is working his way around the house by going up and down on a ladder and pressure washing the exterior. He enjoys the work but detests the ladder part.
While he was in the back of the house, someone rang the front doorbell. There was a lady at the door selling a product called Chemical-Tek, which she touted as a cleaner for everything in the house. She handed me a brochure and simultaneously sprayed and wiped the front door glass. She said this product would clean carpets and asked if I had a spot on a carpet. Why, yes, I do. She wanted to go spray her cleaner on the spot, but I told her I would not let her do that. I asked about a name and number, as I did not intend to buy the product today (and probably never). She said she is from Arizona, and they come through once a year selling this cleaner. She said she would be back in a year. As she said that she took the brochure from my hand and walked down the steps. She did tell me not to work too hard, or something to that effect as she left. I noticed she was walking, and there was no car parked on our short street. I saw her approach a couple of other houses, and I know one family did not go to the door.
Has anyone ever heard of this product, and does someone really come around the area selling it once a year? She may be legitimate, or it could be just a gimmick to get into people's homes to view their possessions.
