One of the most obvious and common signs telling you your home has fallen victim to a moth infestation is the presence of holes in your carpets or clothes. Moths are known not only to eat through natural fabrics, including wool and silk, but they are also keen on laying their eggs on your precious carpeting. Leather and fabric upholstery are also part of a moth’s menu. Your favorite wool sweater, silk shirt or Oriental area rug could all turn into a moth’s home, diner or place to sleep.
If you have already discovered carcasses, larvae or actual flying moths inside your closets or laying around your carpets, your levels of frustration are probably going through the roof. There are even moth species that prefer to spend their time – and do their damage – in the pantry. They fuel up with bread, cereals and fruits – yet another disturbing nuisance thing you are probably eager to get rid of as soon as possible.

Get Familiar With Moths, The Nasty Pests In Your Home
If this is your first encounter with a moth infestation, it might help to know a thing or two about these insects so you can take the best course of action. For starters, they are considered to be the cousins of butterflies and their fossils have been discovered more than 190 million years ago. It is believed they have evolved prior to butterflies, from which they are different in terms of antennae and their nocturnal tendencies.
There are more than 12,000 different species of moths in North America, but only a few of them are likely to make their presence felt inside our homes:
- the Webbing Clothes Moth, which is a small moth also with larvae that form webs after hatching and hiding in clothing. They eat fabrics and they destroy clothes. They don’t say no to carpets either.
- The common or Brown House moth is a brown moth larger in size than other clothing moths. It’s the species of moths you will commonly see flying around your home at night, inside basements and usually low to the ground. Their favorite food to eat: cereal, grains and dog biscuits.
- Common Clothes moths are small moths of light colors you will usually see crawling on your floors more often than you will see flying. Common Clothes moth larvae spin webs around the house and eat lots of different fabrics – red alert for your beautiful carpets.
Professional Carpet Moth Removal Services
While you might be able to find a long list of DIY moth removal methods online, none can effectively destroy and prevent moths from returning. Your best bet comes in the form of professional moth removal services that provide year-long protection guarantees. Get in touch with the CarpetsToDyeFor team and let us come over, assess the degree of moth infestation and provide you with the best solutions possible.
We will initiate our moth removal services by accurately inspecting your home or commercial space in order to learn the hideouts and foods preferred by the insects. Closets and carpet areas will all be inspected for moths, along with drawers and wardrobes. Fumigation might be necessary in case of severe infestation. It is also possible to use non-chemical treatment solutions to get you rid of your home or office moths, depending on the extent of the infestation. Keep in mind regular vacuuming is very little likely to effectively remove carpet moth larvae, as it is not powerful enough to remove both the larvae and eggs. Plus, they tend to hide in dark and difficult to access spots which are impossible to vacuum.
The CarpetsToDyeFor experts are fully equipped with advanced tools and gear that can successfully eliminate all moths, eggs and larvae from your property in a timely manner and at affordable rates. With the help of deep steam cleaning procedures, we can completely kill and eradicate larvae and eggs while getting rid of the resulting debris.
Once the moisture from the steam cleaning process is removed, the same will happen with the eggs, larvae and the rest of the piling that has been damaged. Our experienced technicians will decide upon the best moth removal methods that are the least harmful for you and your loved ones.
