Proper storage of rugs is important to prolong their lifespan and prevent them from becoming damaged over time. Ideally, the rug should first be thoroughly cleaned and dried before being rolled up and left in a cool, dry, dark space. Climate-controlled spaces are preferable to prevent fluctuations in temperature and humidity that can damage rugs.

Rug Storage Tips

  • If possible, wrap rugs in plastic or fabric before storage
  • Clean storage areas regularly to discourage insects
  • Rugs should not have heavy objects placed on top of them as these can cause damage
