Gotta call from another cleaner - custy has a 10x7 brane new rug - blended with Luxcell (viscose). Has 3-4 small dog pee areas. They paid $1100 for the rug and it's literally a couple weeks old. I'm guessing it can't be spot cleaned? @Scott W ??

Depends on how deep the urine went down, but for arguments sake, I hate the word spot clean!

Is this woven or tufted? Glued on backing?

Dyes or colorants may dictate how this can be handled, but it might be possible to treat with Wool Medic. The flush water from the surface while extracting from the back.

Since the comparison will be the cleaned spot to new rug, i doubt spot cleaning can make it blend in 100% but you might get it close.

water rings may show up if you spot clean but If you wanna try that, I have been successful with other rugs placing the waterclaw under and running water like crazy from the top

Thx scott - I haven't seen it yet but they just moved in and bought the rug so it's basically brand new. I'm thinking it's tufted ($1100 from Raymour and Flannigan).
I'll try and get some pics - the label does say something about wool from NZ too.
