We have recently come across a few moth infestation problems which our customers have endured through their carpets. They particularly like eating wool carpets and will feed off around edges and can hang on to furniture, particularly underneath and to the back of headboards etc. This can be eradicated by us simply applying an insecticide treatment following a good vacuum and then deep cleaning carpet using hot water extraction and then applying another application to finish.
This will usually eradicate any further problems and prevent any further damage to the carpet. This problem does not occur with man made fibre carpets such as polypropylene.
Should you wish to discuss or ask for a free quotation please contact Gary at the office and he can advise.
Gary recently undertook a call from a customer in Aylesford regarding the damage caused to his carpet by his pet hamster, “Erica”.
She took great delight in munching her way through two big holes on the carpet whilst the owner was cooking dinner!
He said that he looked at the hamster with swollen pouches and had to pat her on the back to release the carpet fibres she had swallowed!!
After a visit from Gary we were able to repair the damage with a spare piece of carpet the customer had available and blend this in to the existing carpet.
The results are much better than they were and the customer said “we had done a great job and Erica was also impressed with our handy work!”
Here are a couple of pictures of the pre damage, result and of course little Erica.
