What's the BEST Way to Display Your Area Rug on Your Wall?
Hi folks, Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ! I just wanted to talk a quick moment to share this short little video showing off a recent "repair" that we did for one of our clients and their beautiful little Navajo rug. They no longer wanted to have this rug lying on the floor, where it can really take a beating. Instead, they wanted to hang it on their wall, making it easy to display and protect it as well!
The proper way to hang area rugs is to have a sturdy fabric sleeve sewn onto the back of the rug by a professional. This prevents putting pressure on single points of the rug (like loops or just tacking it to the wall would do) and doesn't do any damage to the rug itself. In fact, the sleeve can be easily removed if you ever decide that you no longer want your rug on the wall, and you'll never even know it was ever there! All you need to do is slide a curtain rod through the sleeve and place it on your wall - easy peasy!
It's also important to have your rug professionally cleaned before you hang it on your wall - that way all of the dirt and any spills can be removed from the rug beforehand. You should also have a moth treatment applied to your rug to help protect it against moths. Moths LOVE dark, quiet places where they won't be disturbed - exactly what the back of your rug hanging on your living room wall provides! Moth treatment is colorless, odorless, and safe for your home but it changes the taste of the wool to moths so that they don't want to make your beloved rug their home!
