Don't Make These Mistakes When Moving with Your Area Rugs! - Sedona AZ

Moving into a new home gives you a chance for a fresh start in decorating and arranging things.  Moving also entails packing everything up, loading it into the moving truck, and then unloading everything and trying to find a place for it once you get to your new home.

I think we can all agree on one thing, however:

Think about it: moving is the perfect time to get your Oriental and Persian area rugs cleaned.  All of your furniture has already been moved off of it and the rug has been rolled up to be loaded onto the moving truck.  Moving trucks have very dirty floors that will only make your rug dirty if it isn’t properly wrapped and protected.  Can you imagine a light colored rug getting thrown onto a dirty moving truck floor that has mud, grease, and who knows what else on it?  Yuck!

You don’t have control over the moving truck that will show up to carry your precious belongings to your new home, so take control ahead of time!  Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care can help you protect your rug & get it ready for your new home!

We can pick your rugs up for you or you can bring them into our washing facility.  Here, we’ll professionally clean your rug and wrap it in a protective wrap that allows wool fibers to breathe while still keeping that unwanted soil from the moving truck off of the rug!  Unlike plastic bags, this wrap is safe for long term storage!

Sometimes rugs don’t go down on the floor immediately at the new house, sometimes even being put away for years.  Wrapping your rug in this protective wrap will protect your rug from unwanted critters like mice and moths from nibbling at your rugs!  We also offer a moth treatment for additional protection from moth infestation (which is a very serious and real problem for rugs that are stored improperly).

Moths love when wool rugs are rolled up and ignored in a dark, quiet storage area like the garage, a closet, or even under the bed!  This creates the perfect environment for moths to swoop in, lay their eggs, and thrive as they nibble away at the fibers of your unattended rug.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: NEVER store a dirty, unprotected area rug!

Rugs that are soiled with animal urine or food and drink spills are especially attractive to moths because these spills provide more protein for the little critters, making your wool rug nearly irresistible!


Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
