Don't let common cloth moths damage your wardrobe: The importance of regularly inspecting your clothes

Do you remember the last time you thoroughly inspected your closet? Most likely, the answer is no. However, if not done regularly, the hidden presence of moths and other pests could damage your stylish clothing items. Common cloth moths or Tineola bisselliella - are the most common pests that feed on textiles across the United Kingdom.

In this blog, we will highlight the importance of regularly inspecting your clothes for common cloth moth damage.

The damage caused by common cloth moths

Perhaps the most significant harm caused by cloth moths is the damage to textiles. They prefer to feed on natural textiles, such as wool, cashmere, silk, and cotton. They can cause extensive damage to the fabric by consuming threads and leaving behind holes or even entire patches of damaged areas. This damage can lead to the deterioration of clothing, making them unwearable. In severe cases, the damage can be irreparable.

Additionally, moths are attracted to clothes that have sweat, food, and other residues. Therefore, even if the clothing is not dirty, humidity and storage habits can attract moths to the garments. The eggs remain in the textile fibres, and the hatched larvae cause the most damage. The damage caused by common cloth moths is not only a financial loss but can also be a sentimental one if they destroy a cherished piece of clothing.

The importance of regularly inspecting your clothes

Prevention is always better than cure for common cloth moth infestations. Regularly inspecting your clothes is an essential step in preventing moth damage. Clothing moth larvae tend to hide in the dark corners of closets, under layers of fabrics, and other hard-to-reach areas. An inspection will help you detect moth activity early and before any serious damage is caused.

    To inspect your clothes effectively, remove clothing from the closet and search for any signs of moths, their larvae or webbing. Pay attention to the storage area where the clothing is kept, especially if your closet is humid, such as in or near the bathroom. In general, cleaning your closet regularly, vacuuming carpets, and airing out the closet are good practices to prevent moth infestations.
