  1. my thoughts were great job but how can you know if old colors are not going to bleed, I took my rug to Albed and he claims he is in business for so long guess what? it bleed pretty heavily 1/3 carpet . a complete destruction job

  2. Very cool dust/dirt removal ideas, but I assume the rug was tested for colorfastness before wetting/washing. I once tried to remove a fresh dog-urine stain from mine by quickly dipping the soiled area in the bath tub (trying to dilute and remove the urine before it set) and my cherished rug with its colorful design bled all over wherever the water (not the pee, the water) touched it, effectively ruining the rug. DO NOT try washing your rug until you are sure the dyes are colorfast!

  3. A 100 year old rug bought at an auction. We're in 2014 would of just bought a new rug looking at the condition of that rug. I don't care if that carpet was owned by some rich or famous person. Just not worth all that work. But no two minds are alike so not sure what she was thinking, however I have a 9 year old rug in my basement going for auction. . Starting bid is at $900. 

  4. The rug still looks the same to me and to get the dust out just vacuum it out using a powerful upright vacuum cleaner then deep clean it using a spray extraction machine for far better results and to save time as your method took far to long just to clean a rug.
