BEWARE: Improper Storage of Area Rugs Can Lead to a Real Disaster! – Prescott Valley

Storing your rug incorrectly might just end with you looking at hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage.  Here, you can see a client’s rug that was incorrectly stored in the garage for a few years.  Life got busy, the rug got forgotten about.  Every one of us can relate to being busy and having to move things to the back burner in favor of more pressing issues.  But leaving an area rug exposed in a quiet setting like this is a golden ticket for moths looking for wool and silk rugs to munch on!
