Rug Storage Tips

Rug Storage Tips: If you think about putting your rug in storage, you must consider the proper storage location. While the basement or attic may seem like a great space for your general storage needs, you should never place a rug in either location. These rooms are prone to attracting higher humidity levels than the rest of the home.
  • Clean your rug. Before storage, taking the rug to a professional cleaner will ensure the maximum amount of dirt and other contaminants are removed.
  • Thoroughly clean the area you plan to place your rug in. After the initial clean, you should periodically dust the room. Tightly roll the rug, pile inward.
  • Wrap your rug in paper, and store it on a shelf or other surface that is not in direct contact with the floor.
  • Do not place any heavy objects on top of the rug. This can cause permanent creasing and other irreversible damage to your rug.
