The beauty of a fine rug is in its details. Similarly, when storing an antique Persian rug or any fine rug, paying attention to detail is very important. If storage of your antique area rug is necessary, follow the tips below to ensure your investment remains with you for decades.

How to Store Your Fine Rug

  • Pick a room that is cool, dry and dim (like a spare room, under the bed or in the closet).
  • Roll rugs in clean canvas or muslin fabric that allows a rug to breathe.
  • Loosely roll the rug to allow for air flow.
  • Always roll an area rug with the pile facing in.
  • Place the rug in an acid-free, archival tube.
  • Prevent creases by never folding your rug.
  • Never wrap rugs in plastic, trapped moisture may cause them to rot.

Fine Rug Storage Tips

When selecting the most optimal storage spot for your antique area rugs or other fine rugs, consider a few storage tips from the experts at AZADI Fine Rugs in Scottsdale.

  • Use a dehumidifier if you live in a humid climate during all or part of the year. Air circulation will help avoid mildew problems.
  • If you are storing your rugs in an arid climate, you may want to raise the humidity of the storage location by using a humidifier.
  • Install shades or blinds to block harsh sunlight to avoid fading.
  • Clean around your stored rugs often to avoid insects that are attracted to dust and dirt.
  • Elevate stored rugs off the ground to avoid carpet beetles from making their home in your rug.
  • Avoid using attics and basements with no climate control, as they can cause irreparable damage.

These tips are just a few of the most important ones. To ensure that your rug storage needs are taken care of professionally, contact AZADI Fine Rugs in Scottsdale.
