You may want to consider the rent-to-own (RTO) model for a while. Some people are always looking for rugs, but others only need it for a short period of time. Once they are used to it in their houses....they tend to keep it, and pay the price to do so.
You could charge a cleaning fee if not returned clean. You can also sell them as used. If you sell used, I would be very clear how many days they were used. Customers will be able to tell if they're in good shape or not.
