Moths-The invisible enemy within your area rug

Most people aren’t aware of the damage and destruction moths can do to their area rugs.  Moths can cause extensive damage to your area rugs by attacking the pile, fringes, and the knots of the back of the area rug. The first step in protecting your area rugs against moths is to educate yourself about moths. Moths are picky little pests that eat animal fibers such as wool, silk, cashmere, angora or fur, or any other materials that contain keratin. However, they only eat animal fibers that are idle and undisturbed. What do we mean by that? Take, for example, the portion of an area rug that lies under a bed or sits under a couch.  Those areas rarely see any disturbances like foot traffic or vacuuming. Even an area rug that is placed in the closet, attic or storage. These area rugs would be ideal candidates for moths since they are idle; they are not being disturbed. Moths have a way of knowing which fibers are idle and when they find a suitable location, they lay their eggs. Flying moth…

These legs can be off the floor if desired.

If you are considering a rug for your dining room or kitchen dining area, there are a couple of things you should consider here.   For a rug under your dining table and chairs, you must measure the width and the length of the table. …
