Here's us doing some rug dusting at the old Warehouse we have an old Kirby as the blower
No offense (really, i'm not being mean here) but why would you not use a grate and on top of that why would you air dust and them flip the rug over and air dust again? the rug is re-collecting the dirt and dust and the dust is not being collected.

Yes we flip them two or three times then follow with vacuuming

well the main reason you don't use a great is it would push the dust deeper into the rug the air hunt hits the solid surface blowing the dust forward with a grate it just pushes it deeper down

Never had a problem with odor, but I flood 95% of them afterwards anyway and odors don't transmit after that. The blower method is a 98% effective dry soil removal method, it spanks the crap outta any other method I've used. You couldn't give me a one trick pony rug badger.

Hang the rug and put the blower nozzle right up to the rug backing, no wand.... Let it flow through the back of the rug into the air. Vacuum first and then try this, you will be shocked. Do it with 4 o'clock sun for the best effect in your video.

The MacGyver of carpet cleaning is now the Larry the Cable Guy

Dude really think of the repercussions of one that drop of 2 stroke gas on a high-end tapestry
Wow
I've been doing this for a long time and have a great deal of experience with Oriental rugs the very thought of running gas anywhere close to one gives me the shivers of unprofessionalism

Maybe your customers don't care

but mine know that I caret enough they'll actually mail me rugs from other states to have them cleaned

Two-stroke smoke goes everywhere lol

You're just trying to justify something unjustifiable lol

It's just like when people argue that a Crb is not a good tool lol
The fact is they can't afford the right tool

Why don't you just scrub them down with black stripper pads and call it a day

How far does my TM exhaust have to be from a rug when I in plant clean one? Do I have to watch the wind? Are you selling wind socks too?
