    Hi John

    Can't see a picture, have you seen the rug?
    Sounds like you want to treat it like a wool carpet, rinse with stair tool or similar & use M Power or SPM?

    Looks like they're trying to do a Zeiglar style with this, looks nice
    Doesn't look (you still gotta test though) like anything untoward so after the prep I'd use M Power

    People see the "Handmade Carpets Ltd" & believe/ assume that they're all handmade thus almost justifying the cost although the company name means nothing but is a clever marketing tool

    Clearly a machine made rug from the backing picture, as Steve says M Power clean with Hand stair tool and keep moisture levels under control

    Many Kashan style, machine-made rugs are distressed to give a vintage appearance and many a purchaser is taken in and persuaded to pay well over the odds for a cheap piece of carpet.
