Proper Area Rug Storage

Here are some quick tips to proper area rug storage:

  1. Area rugs should be stored in a heated, dry area.
  2. If wrapped in plastic, one end should be left open, as wool needs to breathe. If it's completely encased, the wool can sweat and cause condensation inside the wrapping.
  3. A sheet can also be used as a breathable covering.
  4. Make sure the area where you will be storing your rugs is free of moths as well!
  5. Have your area rug cleaned before prolonged storage. Soil and spills left on fibres for a prolonged period of time will often discolor a rug permanently.
