Prescott Area Rug Cleaning Expert. How Do You Cure Rug Moths

You and your area rugs won’t have long to worry about once a single moth makes an appearance. But, unfortunately, beautiful wool and silk rugs are often devastated by moth infestation, a sad reality that is more common than most people think.

Prescott Area Rug Cleaning Expert. How Do You Cure Rug Moths

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

The chance to talk about moths makes the advice worthwhile to all rug owners. You may think a moth infestation is the world’s end for your precious rugs. However, here you can learn more about moths and how our professional rug cleaning service in Prescott can help you eliminate them.


Infestations by Moths May Result from Improper Storage

Moths like to nest in hidden crevices between rugs that have been improperly stored or left out in used rooms.

It would help if you did not store your rolled-up wool area rug in the garage or under the bed because it is a disaster waiting to happen. After all, moths and their larvae love eating wool.


Moths Love Rugs That Have Been Damaged By Spills And Stains

When moths find a peaceful spot where they won’t be disturbed while they go through their life cycle, rugs become the focal point of their world.

Moths will be much more attracted to your area rug if it has been soiled by animals or have spills of food or drink on it, as these substances contain additional protein.


Rug Professional Cleaning in Prescott: A Real Treat for Your Rugs

Arizona Oriental needs to see any rugs you own that have been infested with moths as soon as possible. The rug will be treated to get rid of the pests, then washed and disinfected.

Whether you intend to keep your area rug for a long time or not, and regardless of whether it has been affected by a moth infestation, we will treat it with a specialized WoolSafe formulation while it is being stored.

To keep moths from making a home in our area rugs, we use a treatment that alters how wool tastes. If you want extra assurance that no other pests will try to steal your rug, you can also wrap 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!
