Hi

Is this sentence grammatical?

We are interested in neither buying a vacuum cleaner nor utilizing your carpet cleaning service.

Almost. "Neither" belongs next to the thing it is negating: "We are interested neither in buying a vacuum cleaner nor utilizing your carpet cleaning service." Otherwise, you are saying you are indeed interested in the negative thing. But "neither/nor" is always a bit heavy-handed, and in such a trivial sentence it feels quite out of place. Try "We are not interested in buying a vacuum cleaner or utilizing your carpet cleaning service." That means exactly the same thing.
