Rug Roll – How to Roll a Rug the Proper Way

How to Roll a Rug - Fluff Designs - www.rentfluff.comFor many years now, Fluff has been working with the same local movers. Having such a great relationship with them, we get some inside tips and tricks from the moving trade. Here is one we wanted to share with you:

We are constantly moving area rugs to and from locations. We have always rolled them around an old shipping tube to maintain the shape. Upon unrolling them, we always get a lip that sticks up. We have to roll them the reverse way so that it lays flat and doesn’t warp.

One of our movers, Dave, had a great solution for this!

Fold the edge of the rug over about 18 inches and then roll it up. It’s such a simple solution but it works wonders!
