How should I pack my rug?

Preparing an area rug for storage is essential to ensure it remains in good condition and doesn’t suffer damage during the storage period. Here are steps to prepare an area rug for storage:

1. Clean the Rug: Vacuum the rug thoroughly to remove dirt, dust, and debris.

2. Roll the Rug: Roll the rug tightly, but not too tightly, to avoid creasing or damaging the fibers. Roll it with the pile (the side you walk on) facing inwards to protect it.

3. Secure the Rolled Rug: Use cotton or muslin fabric to wrap the rolled rug. Avoid using plastic, as it can trap moisture. Secure the fabric with cotton twine or rope, but do not tie it too tightly to avoid deformation.
