I've had this rug 2-3 weeks now. After multiple rug fresheners, vacuuming EVERY day and keeping the windows open, my house is finally starting to smell good again. This rug had to have been kept in a storage, moldy, mildewy closet or basement. I have flipped it to examine the underside and vacuumed both sides repeatedly. I'm to worried to try shampooing. It is musty, smelly, old. It sheds like a German Shepard. Here's why I didn't rate it a one. I have patience!! I really love how it looks and I am willing to work diligently in the hopes the smell will diminish over time with the right care. Super disappointed and crossing my fingers!!
Before making purchase for this rug, I read the review as I did for all of my online purchase, I am feeling scary about the quality but when the rug arrives and my husband unpack it, believe me I am in LOVE with this rug. The quality is excellent. I definitely recommend this rug to my friend and I am planning to purchase a 8x10 for my entryway.
