We find signs of minor to moderate moth damage on over half of the wool area rugs that come into our Oriental rug wash plant for rug cleaning. We see major moth damage with rugs stored for long periods of time without proper protection and wrapping. Improper storage can destroy wool rugs whether from insects, pests, mold, or carpet moths. Rugs that have animal contamination such as dander or pet urine are magnets for momma moths to lay her eggs.
Significant damage can be avoided if area rugs are watched or inspected regularly for any signs of moth infestation or damage. Thorough cleaning, rotating the rug and frequent vacuuming will help control, or prevent moth-damaged area rugs.
Moths are small and sneaky, so seeing them or catching them in the act of laying eggs is rare. Typically, if you spot a carpet in your home, it’s highly likely you have a significant moth infestation. Keep your eyes open and look for these signs.
