This house was built in 1965. Pretty sure original carpets. Besides the offgass under furniture situation they still look good, actually great. No stains or wear patterns.

Next job was a 5 yo house with rugs bought by an interior designer. I walked from this one. piss stains were the problem, then the tag........viscose blend.

Im seeing more and more viscose.

At least Annie Selke (Dash and Albert) warns people about what they're buying:

The delicate fibers of viscose-blend rugs are best suited for low-traffic, gently used rooms only. Not suitable for homes with children and pets.

On the website at least.

@ $16 to $20 per sq ft, I decided to go around it. Do not want racing stripes here.

A caller said that she has heard from two sources that her wool Tufenkian rugs can not get wet-- so she will be looking for an alternative cleaning company specializing in the Dry method.
I responded: "If wool couldn't get wet, then Sheep would have to be indoor animals.
I informed her that I had the Dry compound method available, but it's inferior to water extraction.
I've heard similar, "sheep don't bathe, so why would I get my wall to wall wool cleaned?" I just say, any cleaning is better than no cleaning, trust me to make the right choices for what you have.

Will host clean a really dirty rug. Or will encap do a better job. Never had good luck with host 35 yrs a go maybe it's a better cleaner now . Just wondering. jz

It's a messy process.. But if the rug has inherit color run issues to getting wet, Host is a viable option.. Dusting the crap out of it after Host is key..
