Area Rug Cleaner in Prescott Explains Rug Storage



Hi there! It’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ.

Do you ever need to put your rugs away in storage? At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care, we all know that not all of you want to keep your rugs stored away for an extended period. Life goes on, yet there are times you need to carry out this tricky operation.

Perhaps you’re downsizing and haven’t found that place for your rug yet, or you are having a home renovation, and you don’t want your rugs to get damaged. Whatever the case, be confident that you can store your rugs correctly.

Here’s more of what you should and shouldn’t do from a Prescott, AZ, area rug cleaning company.


Prescott, AZ Rug Cleaner Pro Says:


  • Never Fold an Area Rug: Folding area rugs is never a good idea, especially if you plan on thinking of them for extended storage. Folding the rug puts it under more stress and wears off the fibers. Once you remove your rug out of storage, these weaken and may break.
  • Never Store a Dirty Rug. Before storing your rugs, get them professionally cleaned by an oriental rug cleaning business. Any spills or crumbs will be eliminated, and you’ll be preventing moths and insects from making a home within. Moths lay eggs, and they will feed on the fibers once they turn into larvae.
  • Never Leave a Rug Uncovered: Unprotected rugs left in the open invite rats, insects, and humidity to ruin them. Aside from that, it would help if you didn’t wrap them in plastic because any suggestion of dampness can cause MOLD.


Correct Oriental Rug Cleaner Storage Tips

Hire an expert to clean them, such as Arizona Oriental! We can remove the soil out of your area rug and any animal urine spills that may have happened.

Make sure you’re using moth treatment rather than mothballs. Moths require treatment, which we can give to Arizona Oriental. After a deep cleaning, we conduct this as a last step.

Finally, we can pack your rugs for you, which is another specialized operation we can perform to help you care for them. The difference between a professionally rolled and wrapped rug and one that isn’t can be significant.
