WARNING: Storing Your Area Rugs Improperly Can be a Huge Disaster! – Sedona AZ

We all know how busy life can get and how, sometimes, things need to get put on the back burner while we take care of more pressing issues in our lives.  Storing area rugs in your garage for a few years may not seem like a bad thing.  But here, we have photos of a rug that was left in the garage for a few years, exposed to the quiet setting.  You can see that by storing your rug incorrectly, you could be left with hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage by the time you’re ready to put it back down on your floor.  Leaving a rug exposed to a quiet environment like this is basically a V.I.P. invitation to moths looking for wool and silk to munch on!

The moth damage pictured here COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED if this rug had been properly stored.

If you need to put your rug in storage for a while, give us at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care a call.  We can save you thousands of dollars in moth larvae damage to your Persian and Oriental wool or silk rugs by properly preparing them for storage.
