Area Rug Cleaner in Sedona, AZ Deals with Moth Issues


Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ at the end of another busy week.

I only wanted to go over moths. With your area rugs, you will think this moth infestation is the worst thing to happen.

It just takes one moth to turn you and your area rugs into a big issue and headache. It’s terrible to see moth infestation in lovely wool & silk rugs, but sadly it’s something we see more frequently than people would think.

You will read a little more here about what these moths can do and how area rug cleaner in Sedona can help stop them.


Incorrect Storage Leads to Moth Infestations

Moths LOVE peaceful, secluded locations between area rugs that are incorrectly stored or rugs that are left in rooms that don’t get a lot of traffic. Wool area rugs provide moths and their larvae with an abundant source of food, and the rug you have rolled up in your garage or lying under your bed is waiting for a catastrophe.


Moths Like Spills and Stains on Rugs

Rugs are essentially the buffets of the world of a moth, especially when they are in a quiet environment so that the moths can go untroubled through their life cycle. If your area rug has any animal accidents or drops of food/drink on it because of the added proteins these items have along with the fur, moths will be far more drawn to it.

Treat Your Rugs with Rug cleaning Professionals

If there is a moth infestation in one or more of your area rugs, you will need to bring it to us here in Arizona Oriental as quickly as possible! Before cleaning and treating your rug as needed, we will treat the rug to destroy the infestation.

We will administer a special WoolSafe treatment that will cover your rug when it is being stored, whether you want to keep your area rug for some time - whether it has been affected by a moth infestation or not.

Our moth treatment switches the wool’s taste to moths so they are stopped from making a home in our area rugs and finding somewhere else to go. We also suggest covering your rug in a breathable storage wrap - this will add another protection from other pests to your rugs that might attempt to get a piece of your rug for themselves.

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
