You’re more than welcome to come up Ron. Come for the sun, pool, clean some rugs, then a dip in the hot tub after....
Sounds good to me. We have a company here testing the waters trying to sell their rug cleaning equipment. Most by centrum force. Wash tub, centrifuge, 2 tumble dusters, etc. $125,000. No idea if that's a good deal or not. They want to sell it all as a package

Lucky it wasn't soiled is right.

The hand-loomed rugs have become a plague. The rayon and plant fiber blends are the worst, and the ones with a glued-on backing like you have there is the worst of the worst.

Any water on that rug will wick adhesive up from the backing and leave a yellow discoloration you will not be able to remove.

We refuse any that are stained, since whatever the owner did to remove the stain has already ruined it, and suggest they talk with the retailer if they weren't told the rug had to be considered disposable. Oddly, most customers know they bought something risky and just ask us to throw it away for them.
