How Do You Wrap an Area Rug? Prescott, AZ Area Rug Cleaning

How Do You Wrap an Area Rug, and when you should and shouldn’t do it?



Hi there, I’m Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott.

Keep in mind that we want what is best for a client’s rug here at Arizona Oriental. For this, we need to know what’ll happen to the rug once it reaches home.

If it’s going back on the floor, there’s no need to wrap the rug. We can deliver and place it where it’s supposed to go. No wrapping is needed.

Sometimes, a client says the rugs aren’t going back on the floor because of renovation or moving home. If the delay is just temporary, Arizona Oriental will gladly cover the rug in plastic to keep the dust off it, free.

PLASTIC IS ONLY TEMPORARY, and they should only use this method for a few weeks at most. Area rugs, particularly fine wool Persian, Oriental, and American Indian rugs, need to breathe.

Wool naturally absorbs moisture, and plastic can never suffice in the long term. Never put a rug and moisture in a plastic bag as you will get mold, and it will ruin your rug.


Breathable Area Rug Wrap After Rug Cleaning in Prescott

Even for brief spells, we are not keen on using this method as with the right conditions, mold can start 48 hours.  

Rugs need wrapping in a breathable waterproof wrap for long-term storage. We sell an ideal wrap at Arizona Oriental, which is suitable for transporting rugs from A to B. The wrap we use is much more durable than thin plastic and will shield your rug from the harsh conditions used in moving vans.

When our clients know their rugs will be stored for a long time, this breathable wrap is the best option. When you have your rugs cleaned by Arizona Oriental in Prescott, AZ, and you know your rug will not be placed directly on your floor, ask us if we can help you protect your area rug from the elements, bugs, dust, and other contaminants until you are ready to use it again.
