Prescott, AZ Rug Cleaner Do’s and Don’ts for Storage


Hi there! It's Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ. Do you ever think about putting your rugs into storage?

I realize that not all of you want to keep your rugs stored away for an extended period. Life goes on, and at times it has become a must.

Perhaps you’re downsizing and haven’t found that place for your rug yet, or as winter is coming, you’re trading rugs for the cool season.

Whatever the case, you should be confident that you can store your rugs Correctly.

Here’s more of what you should and shouldn’t do from a Prescott, AZ area rug cleaning company.


Prescott, AZ Professional Rug Cleaner Says DON’T Do This

Never Fold Area Rugs: You should never fold any area mats, particularly if you are thinking of long-term storage. Folding will put the rug under additional strain and wear the fibers. These weaken and may be broken once you remove your rug from storage.

Never Store Dirty Rugs. Your rugs should always be professionally cleaned before storage by an oriental rug cleaning company. Once you do this, any spills or crumbs will be removed, and it can help prevent moths and insects from climbing inside for a place to make their home.

Moths can lay eggs, and they will feed on the fibers once they turn into larvae.

Never Leave Rugs Uncovered:  Unprotected rugs that are uncovered are asking to be damaged by rodents, insects, and damp. Besides this, you shouldn’t go the other way and wrap them in plastic—any hint of damp, and you will get MOLD.


Correct Oriental Rug Cleaner Storage Tips

Have them cleaned by a professional like Arizona Oriental!  We can remove the soil from your area rug and any animal urine accidents that may have occurred. 

Be sure you have moth treatment and not mothballs. We at Arizona Oriental can provide special treatment to care for moths. We do this as a last step after a deep cleaning.

Finally, the packing is another expert process we can do to help care for your rugs. Professional rug rolling and wrapping can make all the difference.
