Moth Damage Repair/Restoration & Prevention
Moths and Area Rugs
You probably don’t spend a lot of your day worrying about moths. As far as insects go, they’re fairly mundane. They look more like dull-colored butterflies than anything else. But if you have to store a rug or keep it somewhere dark, moths can wreck your day.
Did you know moths can lay thousands of eggs?
Moths that feed on fabrics are one of the most common and frustrating pests out there. A single moth can lay thousands of eggs that hatch into clothes-eating larvae. These larvae need to live in the dark, making closets and trunks ideal places for them. Worse, they love to be able to get back into the dark quickly if exposed, and rugs, especially handmade rugs, tend to have enough space between the stitching to allow them to do so.
If you’re dealing with moths damaging your rugs, we can help. Traditional vacuums aren’t effective at removing moth eggs, and even removing the eggs doesn’t undo the damage. We’ll get rid of all moths infesting your rug for you. Then, we’ll set to work matching fabrics and reweaving to get your rugs looking better than ever.
