I apologize for the dots on the pictures -- apparently there was something on my lens, which I have since (I hope) cleaned up.
Behold the family room with the 1970s red shag carpeting. That black thing at the far end is a wet bar that is covered with black flocked material, tufted across the front. My friend has dubbed this space "The Las Vegas Room."

I need to tell you that I vacuumed this space twice over today -- with two different high-powered vacuum cleaners.
And then I began the shampooing process.
The dirt was truly disgusting. I'd get about a 3' x 4' patch done and then have to change out the water.
And, as suspected, many fibers came up in the shampooing process. Number 6 (who is home for a few days between jobs) joked that there were enough fibers to weave a whole 'nother carpet.
Tomorrow I will go back over the family room carpet with the shampooer yet again, and I will shampoo the carpets in the two bedrooms off the family room.
Now, let me show you a space that I am very happy about.
This is my new kitchen.
See that window over the sink?
This is the view:
