How Do We Protect Your Rug During Storage?
When a rug is to be stored for more than a few months, we take care to clean, protect, and wrap it in protective plastic of building paper. We highly recommend scheduling a rug cleaning service prior to storage at our facility. Some of the steps of the cleaning process can include:
- Hand Washing
- Bug Protecting
- Chemical Stabilization
- Odor Removal
Why We Clean and Dry Before Rug Storage
One aspect we are sure to take care of before rug storage is to make sure the rug is completely dry. We encourage you to think twice about using mothballs or flakes–these materials have little repellent effect, and the odor they impart to the rug can be difficult to remove. Even if you choose a place you believe is safe for storage, a damp or poorly cleaned rug will suffer significant damage from mold, mildew, and damage from bugs.
