DO NOT LET THE RUG BUGS BITE!

August 14, 2014

What can some seemingly harmless little moth do to a rug? Well, take a look at the rug that one of our customers brought in recently that moths enjoyed dining on.

It's not uncommon for moths to infest oriental rugs. Rugs that are have large pieces of furniture covering them are vulnerable as are rugs that are excessively soiled. 

A few seemingly harmless little moths can do considerable damage to a rug as the larva eat the wool leaving the cotton foundation. 

The experts at H.C. Nahigian and Sons can remove the contaminants that attract moths, as well as remove the larva and eggs that are hidden in the base of the pile. From there, we’ll be able to closely inspect the extent of the damage and have our specialists address possible repairs. 

Regular vacuuming and frequent rug cleaning is the most helpful way to protect your rugs from moths.  In addition, we highly recommend that rugs be reversed periodically so that areas that may be covered will be exposed.

If you suspect that you have moth issues, call our expert Tom Jorjorian at 847.676.2500 and he'll provide you with all the expertise you need to solve the problem.
