Rug Closeout

Moth Eradication Services

Moths and their larvae thrive in dark, undisturbed areas where a rug gets little traffic and is not often vacuumed. Flying clothes moths do not eat your rugs, but the moth egg larvae consume wool, fur, feather, and silk fibers. A bad infestation sometimes leaves a cobweb-like veil in the area of the damage, along with fine, sand-like debris. An infestation often involves more than one rug, and can spread to (or from) woolens or furs hanging in a closet or sweaters stored in a drawer.

  • Flash freezing to 15-20°F below zero for several weeks
  • One week thawing process
  • Freezing again for another week.
