PROTECT YOUR RUGS
CLEANING BEFORE STORING
When storing rugs long term, the rug should be cleaned by professional oriental rug cleaners. After, it should be wrapped with either newspaper or tobacco to prevent moth damage. Covering an oriental rug with plastic prevents the rug from breathing and will cause the rug to rot or mildew. This can lead to odor problems.
When storing your rug short term, you can easily fold the rug using a trifold technique. It is important to store the rug on an elevated platform a few inches off the ground. This prevents any possible damage from water or other liquids
For long term storage, it is best to roll the rug tightly and tie it with a rope. The rugs will still need to be stored elevated from the floor, but this will allow the rug to lay flat when it is unrolled.
Larger rugs should be rolled up, tied with a rope and can be stored leaning against a wall or corer elevated from the floor.
