- In the first step, we generally treat the carpet with an insecticide. The most popular and effective insecticide used is pyrethrum. This pyrethrum quickly paralyzes the carpet moth’s nervous system and eradicates the infestation during the fumigation process.
- After fumigation, the carpets generally go through a deep and extensive cleaning process. This involves a cold water submersion bath to boost the cleaning results while safeguarding the carpet’s fibers.
