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.

Long Term

Long Term Storage

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 corner elevated from the floor.

Moths

Moths

Moths are picky pests that eat animal fibers such as wool, silk, cashmere, angora, 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 a rug under a bed or a couch that rarely sees any disturbances such as foot traffic or vacuuming, a carpet placed in the closet or attic. These 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. It is important to realize that moths do not distinguish between clean and dirty wool. They distinguish between disturbed and undisturbed wool. Although a cleaning of a rug will cause its fibers to be disturbed, there will come a point in time when these cleaned fibers are going to become idle cleaned fibers. We estimate that any rug, dirty or clean, left idle for a period of at least six months is at risk of becoming infested with moths. This means that a cleaning alone will not prevent
