Moths and carpet beetles are a major concern when found in wool rugs. The damage is done when the moth is in the larvae stage. The larvae feed on protein (wool, silk, animal hair), lay eggs in the rug and the cycle continues. Routine cleaning of the rug and home are necessary to prevent insect infestation.
At Oriental Rug Cleaning Co., we offer a product that acts as a deterrent by making the face yarns bitter to their taste. This process is very important before storing rugs.
While there are no guarantees written or implied that moths will ever return, cleaning and treatment is the best method to combat this problem.
