How to store unused handmade carpets

2021-05-20

 1. First wash before storing 

 

 

 

When you're ready to store handmade carpets, be sure to wash them thoroughly. Because the carpet is generally rolled up for storage, if the carpet surface is stained, the stain will damage the carpet over time. If the entire strip cannot be cleaned in depth, at least it must be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner before being stored away. 

 

2. Prevent insect bites 

 

 


The materials of handmade carpets are generally natural fibers. If you want to store the carpets in the basement, you must ensure that the carpets have additional protection to prevent it from insects. Especially when you buy wool carpets, be sure to get some insect repellent on the carpets, because wool carpets will be worms if they are not used for a long time. Insects on silk carpets are relatively rare, because silk fibers are protected by sericin, but it is best to have protective measures to prevent foreign insects from damaging the carpet. 

 

3. Roll up and store 

 

 

 

Regardless of whether it is a mechanical carpet or a handmade carpet, try to roll it up and store it as tightly as possible. Never stack them up, because if they are stored for a long time, the carpet may have creases or cracks that are difficult to remove. Handmade rugs generally have the surface of the rug rolled inside and the back of the rug exposed. 

 

4. wrapped in cloth 

 

 

 

After the carpet is rolled up, it is wrapped in cotton and stored. Do not use plastic film packaging, which is not conducive to the "breathing" of natural fibers. 

 

5. Store in a cool, dry place 

 

 

 

Rolled handmade carpets must be stored in a cool, dry place, preferably on a flat surface that is higher than the ground, and other heavy objects should not be placed on the carpet, nor should they be exposed to the sun. 

 

6. Periodic inspection 

 

 

 

To be on the safe side, we recommend checking the condition of the carpets every six months. Clean the blanket if necessary to prevent dust attracting insects. 
The above are the steps and suggestions for storage of handmade carpets. If you buy handmade carpets in Tianjiang, there is no place to store them in the home, you can send them back to us and we will keep them for free.
