Did I Just See a Moth on MY Persian Rug?

Last Updated: 7 June 2017

A Dirty Rug is a Yummy Rug! (For Moths)

Dust and dirt are important to remove off of your rugs for a few reasons. Obviously, you want to live in a clean home, and part of a clean home is a clean rug. There are some less obvious reasons, though. Did you know that dust and dirt have tiny, sharp edges that work against the pile of your rug? What exactly does that mean? It means that the fibers of your rug are being stressed and they’ll wear out faster than normal. Another huge reason to keep your rugs clean? Moths. The dirtier your rug is, the more appetizing it is for a moth.

The photos below might just look like dusty or dirty rugs, but look a little closer. That’s a huge patch of moth damage- not dirt!

My Rug Looks Like That! Help!

There are sanitation and restoration options for you. That’s right- your rug can be cleaned and repaired. Take a deep breath and read on.

First and foremost, you’ll want to take your rugs out of your home. They need to be washed by a professional. Behnam Rugs offers free pick up and delivery within the DFW area. Give us a call and we’ll pick your rug up for cleaning for you.

What’s going to happen to your rugs? They’re going to be washed and sanitized. Not only will your rug look clean, but it’ll be clean too. No more moths in your favorite rug’s fibers! While your rugs are being cleaned, we ask that you clean the rest of your home, too. It would be horrible to have your rug cleaned and repaired just to have it be re-infested.

You’re probably wondering something big- “Will my rug ever be the same again?” At Behnam Rugs, we’ll do our best to make sure every rug goes back to its owner looking as good as new. We know you love your rug. We love your rug, too! That’s why we only use methods we’d trust with our own rugs. Your rug will be cleaned the traditional, natural way.
