Carpet Moth Control

Learn how to get rid of carpet moths and moth larvae and how natural preventive methods for carpet moth control can work fast.

The infestation of carpet moths, beetles, and moth larvae is an unwanted problem. The larvae of these pests feed on organic materials like wool and silk, which causes holes in your carpets to form over time. Our pros go over how to get rid of carpet moths and moth larvae and a natural preventive method for carpet moth control.

That’s just one thing that you need to know about NEW CARPET AND MOTH CONTROL.  Following is a list of other things you need to know, including but not limited to:
•    When you realize you have an infestation, get your rugs professionally cleaned.
•    As well as your wool carpet, make sure all of your wool items are cleaned and made “moth free.”
•    It is the worm-like moth larva that “devours” your carpets.

“One of the keys to new carpet and moth control,” Our pros advise, “is to keep your house clean!  As well as your carpet, moths can subsist on things ranging from dust to pet ‘accidents.’”

Get Rid of Carpet Moths

Ways to keep your home clean, and thus minimize the chance of having wool-eating moths, includes but is not limited to:
•    Clean air/heating ducts before you use them.
•    Clean all wool items BEFORE packing them away.
•    If your rug is partially covered by furniture, remove it and make sure you clean the entire carpet.
•    Thoroughly vacuum baseboards.

For NEW CARPET AND MOTH CONTROL, there are several items that serve well to repel them.  These include but are not limited to:
•    Moth Balls
•    Cedar
•    Essential Oils – Lavender, Camphor, Rosemary, Thyme, and Mint to name a few.

Natural Carpet Moth Control

There are times that many owners opt to store their wool rugs for a period of time – especially if they are “area rugs.”  When that occurs, there are several things you should keep in mind, but that are not limited to:
•    They should NEVER be laid directly on a concrete floor.
•    They should NEVER be stood on their ends.
•    They should NEVER have things piled on them.
•    The best storage method is to have them suspended from the ceiling, making an “invasion” by moths or rodents much more difficult for them to accomplish.

As you can see, NEW CARPET AND MOTH CONTROL is something you may very well want to give serious thought to – if, in fact, you have a wool carpet.  To learn more about this you will want to contact Owner, Chris Brown of BRANDI CARPET and he and his staff will provide you with all the pertinent information you will need regarding this issue.
