Default Can the Rug Doctor be used to clean... rugs?

As opposed to carpets?

The basic process must be the same, but I wonder how much trouble is
caused by the fact that a rug is not fixed to the floor.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Yes, And you can also clean the upholstery in the car or truck.

Have someone stand on one end of the rug. Small rugs can be held with
one hand. Large area rugs; then have a helper.

Does anyone have experience with this?


A few times....

Honest-to gosh real rugs must be professionally cleaned. If not, the
size changes non-uniformly and the rug wont lay flat. At pro shops the
rugs are mounted on racks adjusted to the size, then cleaned. Been
there, done that many times in the last century.
