No, you should only try to surface clean tufted rugs onsite. The wool fiber will last over 30 years but the backing will last 3-12 years depending on if it has a pad under it and also how often the room is used. The latex breaks down with traffic and will break down faster if cleaned poorly (wrong ph, too much water, trying to do too much). If you soaked it or beat the latex out when cleaning it off site then you would have to re—latex the backing. Almost every time, it’s not worth it because then re-latexing would be close to the price of the rug.Is this where a rug pit/drying station has a major advantage over us rug suckers ?
