​​​​​​​Area Rug Moth Damage Prevention - What You NEED to Know!

Hi folks, Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ once again!  Believe it or not, there are people who don’t think that we have a moth problem here in Northern Arizona. But believe ME when I say that we most certainly do!

There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing an $8,000.00 Persian rug riddled with moth holes that could have been prevented with a simple preventative treatment!

Moths LOVE dark, quiet, and undisturbed environments to lay their eggs and let their babies grow and eat away at your rugs.  Area rugs provide a whole lot of wool for hungry moth larvae, and if they are sitting beneath a bed, in a closet, or even rolled up in the garage, it’s a sure thing they will be all over that rug of yours.  Rugs hanging on your wall are also not safe from moths! These are the areas where the most trouble can and will occur if you aren’t careful with your rugs!

Here at Arizona Oriental, we offer a treatment that will help to prevent any moths from making home in your beautiful rugs.  We can even get your rugs ready for you to store them in a proper way and protect them! Our Moth Treatment is something we offer to all of our clients with wool and silk area rugs - it’s invisible and odorless to us, but it changes the taste of the wool to the moths, making your area rug the last on their list of places they want to set up their home!

Prevention is always far better than trying to repair damage done by moths!  Sometimes it’s even nearly impossible to return a rug to its pre-moth state.

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