What is the best way to deal with moths eating my wool carpet?

If you start noticing your carpet going bald in areas or start noticing small cream eggs on your carpet you almost definitely have carpet moths.

First things first you must move all furniture, so you are able to give the carpet a tougher vacuum, moths love, love, to lay their eggs in dark undisturbed areas so under furniture or skirting boards is an ideal spot.

You would need to vacuum regularly to avoid them returning in these areas, make sure once you’ve vacuumed you empty it outside every time.

If the regular vacuum doesn’t seem to work and you find more moths appearing, then contacting a professional carpet cleaning company.

The only problem with using a professional is that they will use an insecticide, this is basically spraying poison on your carpet so it is not ideal for it to come to this method.

What Art of Clean like to do is instead of using an insecticide we like to use a saltwater solution on the carpet, so instead of killing the moths it makes the carpet less tasty to them and they start to go elsewhere.

If the problem, persist it might be worth checking that your neighbours don’t have a mothy problem, they can travel from one house to the other through floorboards etc.
