Default Interior at risk for moth damage?

My recently acquired coupe with m cross interior was parked in a garage with the windows down for a week. I'm assuming all of the interior fabrics, including the m cross inserts, are synthetic and not at risk for moth damage?

Why don't you close your windows and put an open box of arm and hammer in there

They're closed now. I had been working on the car in my spare time and didn't think to put the windows up.

It's almost summer, just park the car in the sun if you're really worried about moths. They won't do too well in 120+ degree temperatures.

That'll sure protect that M-Cross fabric and Amaretta.

Yes, 1 or 2 days will ruin his interior.

You need to put in a picture of Godzilla somewhere in the car... This will protect the interior from any moths or Mothra.

Thanks for the replies, I know it is kind of a ridiculous question. Just not eager to see holes eaten in the door cards, headliner, etc... I contemplated letting the car sit out in the sun for a few hours, but I live in the desert which is harsh on 20 year old plastic dashes, rubber trim pieces, etc... I don't baby the car when I drive it, but I try to avoid environmental factors that can cause issues that you can't "unsee" once you've seen them once.
