Rugs are everywhere . . . especially with consumers turning to more hard surface flooring alternatives for living areas. Area rugs have climbed to 25-30% of the total floor coverings market.   Wouldn’t you rather clean a rug in your facility for $3.00-5.00 per s.f., than drive to a home or business and clean wall-to-wall carpet for .30 per sf.  That's $324 for a single 9’ x 12’ rug!  And that doesn't include fabric protection, urine treatment, pad sales, and repair.
