The first step in any project that involves addressing moth damage is to thoroughly clean the affected rug. For this rug, after we completed the professional cleaning, we then rebuilt and reinforced any part of the warp and weft that was damaged and reknotted the damaged and compromised pile. The photo below shows the rug as we reknotted the pile. Note the long strands of yarn.
Finally, after reknotting the pile, we cut down the long yarns and revealed the final result, shown below.
