Rugs & Mats - Non-working

Consider cleaning it and repurposing your rugs and mats before disposal. Find a carpet/rug cleaner to rent or borrow, or have a specialist work on it at their shop or bring their tools to your site. A clean but stained, work rug or mat may be perfect in an another area of your home, or may be just the thing for another site.
