What Does Moth Damage Look Like in an Oriental Rug
The hot weather brings so much joy to so many of us, especially hungry moths who thrive in hot, humid, and dark environments where there is little cross circulation. If you store your wool sweaters in a closet or wardrobe, now is a good time to take them out to inspect them. If you store your rugs in a dark closet, we would recommend an immediate inspection. Even if you do not store your rug but have it out in the living room, perhaps a section of it has a heavy peace of furniture on it or is under a sofa. Moths can damage those sections if left undisturbed.
Many clients reach out when they suspect but are not certain of moth damage. The photo above shows what advanced moth damage looks like. Moths ate entire little areas of wool pile as a section of the rug was left under furniture undisturbed for an extended period of time. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
