The flying carpet cleaners all wear jet-packs and use the best high tech steam cleaners for your carpets. They fly around the room while thoroughly cleaning your rugs without one footprint embedded into the luscious pile of your favorite carpet.
Then they fly away.
You will get the bill in the mail.

       hope they wiped their feet on the way out.

       Hovering=hoovering? Intentional?   

       If you had a flying carpet you could ceiling-mount a carpet shampooer for weekly scrubs.

       Well, one must let them in like any other service, but I think they could come in through the window if you allowed that.

       Well if you're so clever - who shot Eddie Mars?
wagster, Jul 17 2007

       This may seem like a silly question, but why do they wear jetpacks instead of riding flying carpets?   

       [wagster] His own gunsels, of course. The real question is what does Eddie Mars have on you?

       [wagster], when I was small I thought Hoovers were called Hoovers because they went, "hoooooove..."

       don't be silly, flying carpets are *magic*, this is a practical service for cleaning the wall to wall carpets in your home. (My floors are mostly wood and tile.)

       //what does Eddie Mars have on you?// - Well I don't know how much he knew about me and Carmen, but while he was still on the scene there was always the chance that General Sternwood would find out and pull a number on me. I wanted to get rid of Eddie Mars, but so did his own men and so did xandram - who had been secretly meeting up with Vivien in culture:movie:derived work and selling information about Marlowe. Of course if Vivien had told her father about the falcon and he knew Mars was involved...
