How Do I Fight Rug Moths? Prescott a Rug Cleaner

One moth is all it takes to make you and your area rugs a severe problem. Moth infestation in gorgeous wool and silk rugs is upsetting, but it occurs more frequently than most people know.

Prescott a Rug Cleaner

Hi All, it’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ.

I was merely excited to talk about moths. You’ll think that the worst thing that could ever happen to your area rugs is this moth infestation.

Learn more about what these moths can do and how a rug cleaning in Arizona Oriental in Prescott may assist you in getting rid of them here.


Poor Storage Options Let Moths In

Moths favor dark, calm spaces between area rugs that have been neglected or kept in lightly used rooms.

The area rug you have rolled up in your garage or tucked under your bed is waiting for a catastrophe because wool area rugs are a plentiful supply of food for moths and their larvae.


Spills and Stains Can and Will Attract Moths

A moth’s rug is effectively the center of their universe, especially if it is in a calm setting where the moths can go through their life cycle unhindered.

Moths will be much more drawn to your area rug if it has animal accidents or drips of food/drink due to the increased proteins these goods offer.


Treat Your Rugs with Prescott Rug Cleaning Experts

You must bring your area rugs to Arizona Oriental as soon as possible if one or more is moth-infested. After treating your rug to eliminate the infestation, we will wash and disinfect it as necessary.

Regardless of whether you intend to keep your area rug for a long time or not and whether it has been affected by a moth infestation, we will apply a specific WoolSafe treatment to it while it is being kept.

Moths’ liking for wool is changed by our moth treatment, stopping them from settling in our area rugs and moving. To better protect your rug from other pests which could want to take a piece for themselves, we also advise covering it in a breathable storage wrap.

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