How Can You Identify Moth and Bug Damage On Your Rugs?
In this video you will learn how to identify moth and bug damage on your rugs. Good quality rugs can last hundreds of years but moths
and other pests can literally eat holes in your rugs very quickly and create massive damage. Sometimes this damage cannot be repaired.
Let’s talk about the warning signs. There are two things to look for that will let you know if you have a problem with bugs in your rugs.
First, look on the underside of the rug for signs of moth larvae. They look like sticky lint or spider webs on the bottom of the rug.
Next, look for areas where the wool pile has been eaten away leaving bare spots or little divots in the wool, and these can be small.
If your rug has a cotton foundation bugs will eat the wool pile alone leaving bright white areas visible in your rug. If your rug is all
wool the bugs will eat holes all the way through the rug.
If you spot either of these tell-tale signs you’ve got a problem and you need to have your rugs in for a thorough washing at
Rug Cleaning Woodbridge VA right away. If you have an active infestation, where you literally have bugs crawling all over your rugs, these bugs must be killed by a pest
control specialist before bringing them in for a cleaning and treatment. And you should probably have a pest control company check
the rest of your home as well.
