Rug Basics For Moths and Bugs. Prescott Rug Cleaner

Wool rugs are made to last. A rug is not considered "antique" in our industry unless it was woven before 1900. However, they're built to last, and many do when taken care of correctly.


Hi, folks! Ruthie from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care is here on a lovely day in Prescott, AZ.  

However, placing a rug in the wrong environment can be lost in less than a year. Moths, carpet beetles, and other bugs are consuming the toxins that the rug strands are clinging to. The most significant harm happens in storage, so you should use professional rug cleaning and packing by Arizona Oriental Specialty Rug Care.

This makes sense because the bugs prefer dark, undisturbed environments to feed. Bug damage can be seen under large furniture in houses with rugs.

Moths and carpet beetles enjoy eating under a sofa that is never moved, and you’ll discover it damaged on the backside and underneath the rug when you vacuum.

Other bugs not known for eating wool such as silverfish, termites, and others can consume it if something tasty is spilled on the fibers.

For them, the wool serves only as a "container" for the meal, which is then consumed. Therefore, cleaning up spills as soon as possible is critical so that the residue doesn't permeate into the cotton inside fibers.

Dirty rugs are far more appealing to insects than clean rugs.

This is one reason why, depending on the fibers' quality (and frequency) of your vacuuming and how much wear a rug gets, the industry recommends professional rug cleaning every 1 to 3 years.
