Rug Cleaning and Storage
When a rug is to be stored for more than a few months, professional cleaning is recommended but not necessary if rugs is clean and ready for storage.
Rugs should never be stored dirty. Soils can oxidize making them difficult or impossible to remove. Additionally certain soils are more attractive to pests such as moths and carpet beetles. Read about our rug cleaning services.
