Storing your Oriental rug safely requires a few simple precautions. At Infinity Rug Care, we can provide you with the right guidance on storing your rugs safely for future use. Here are some of the most important tips for ensuring the best results when packing your rug away for the season or for a longer period of time.
Clean Your Rug First
Before storing your rug, most experts recommend investing in a professional Oriental rug cleaning treatment. This can prevent stains from becoming part of the fabric of your rug and can ensure the freshest and most beautiful results when retrieving your rug after the storage process. Working with an established Oriental rug cleaning firm like Infinity Rug Care can make a significant difference in the condition of your rug before and after storage.
Roll Things Up
Once your rug has been returned to you after cleaning, carefully roll it up and wrap it in paper designed for that purpose. Deciding on the way to roll up your rug requires a careful inspection of its condition:
- If the back of the rug is more fragile, roll your rug with the pile facing outward.
- If the pile is more fragile, roll your rug with the pile facing inward and the back exposed.
In some cases, your Oriental rug cleaning company may be willing to roll your rug and wrap it for storage before returning it to you. Be sure to ask for this service if you plan to store your rug immediately upon its return.
Choose a Climate-Controlled Facility
Especially if you are planning to store your rug for an extended period of time, choose a self-storage facility that offers climate-controlled units or a place inside your home that will not become too hot or cold. This can preserve the beauty of your rug while ensuring that it remains in good condition for years to come.
