WARNING: It can be a disaster if you store your rugs like this?

WARNING! It can be a disaster if you store your rugs incorrectly! Here is a photo of moth larvae damage. They just went to town, munching away. 

Store your rug incorrectly and you might be looking at hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage! Here is a client’s rug that was incorrectly stored in the garage for a few years. Life got busy and the rug was forgotten about. This is just one area of the rug, there were many more moth eaten areas too.

We can all relate to being busy and how some things move to the back burner while more pressing issues are handled.  However leaving a rug exposed in a quiet setting (such as a garage, closet or under a bed) is a first class invitation for moths to come munch of your wool and silk rugs!

You can see the moth damage here. THIS WAS AVOIDABLE!
