Fabric pest control

There are many different pests that infest fabrics in the United States resulting in costly damages. Pests like carpet beetles and clothes moths feed on the materials found in clothing, furniture and carpets. If left untreated, infestations can spread throughout a property in a short time period.

Ignoring a fabric pest infestation can have some costly consequences, including damage to expensive clothing items or furniture. For businesses such as museums and art galleries, an infestation could damage priceless artifacts or paintings.

Fabric pest prevention

While the treatment of fabric pests should be left to professionals, there are a few things you can do to prevent a fabric pest infestation in your business:

  • Have an annual air duct cleaning if there are animals on your property that frequently shed or have long hair/fur.
  • Seal up entry points so that more fabric pests do not enter your property. Use silicone caulk to fill in cracks and crevices.
  • Practice good sanitation to make your property less attractive to pests.
  • Schedule regular inspections with a pest control Technician to identify any conditions conducive to fabric pests before an infestation occurs.

If you believe that your property has been infested by carpet beetles or any other fabric pests, the first thing you should do is contact the experts at Rentokil.

It is very difficult to identify what type of fabric pest is infesting a space without having the proper training. Rentokil Technicians are state-licensed applicators that have been trained in the biology and behavior of fabric pests.
