first check what type of fiber.
ID fiber
then clean if possible/safe to do so.

That fabric can certainly be cleaned using hot water extraction and a truckmount. The more important questions are do you have the knowledge, skill, experience along with proper tools and chemistry to do so.

Your lack of fabric identification concerns me. Perhaps additional training is in order including learning to do fiber ID.

Most likely a natural fiber. Should be cleaned with near neutral or slightly acidic prespray, low moisture tool, hot temps, fast drying. Do color fastness test first.
