We bought a used rug a few days ago. It looks great and I know it's only
about five years old. However, it has a musty smell. I have a Kirby
shampoo carpet cleaning vacuum which works great on carpets. Will this help
with the rug? - or is there a better method for treating mustiness with
rugs? Anybody any ideas why such a relatively new rug would smell this way?
The owner had no pets (or kids) but the rug had been rolled up in his garage
for several months.
