Rugs Help Keep You Safe and Cozy
As funny as it may sound, "having a rug in your home can keep you safe." Especially for those with tile or hardwood flooring, laying a rug down over those smooth surfaces can help prevent falls. This tip can be especially beneficial for those with little kids running around or families with elderly members who may be more prone to slip and fall.
In addition to keeping you safe, rugs will help keep you cozy. Again, in homes with hard and cold floors, lying an area rug down will warm the place up. Without the need for an extra pair of socks or slippers, an area rug will keep your feet nice and warm as you walk across the house on a chilly winter evening.
Area Rugs Act as an Extra Air Filter
It has been found that rugs trap things such as dust, pollen, and other particles that may be floating around the house. Putting a rug down on your floor can be a helpful way of making the air of your home cleaner by reducing the number of particles in the air. Though, you should be careful to clean the particles out of your rug frequently.
How to Properly Clean Area Rugs
Because rugs act as an extra-large air filter in your home, you must get them cleaned periodically to ensure that the dust, pathogens, and allergens that have made their way into your rug make their way right back out. Suppose the build-up of dust, pathogens, and allergens stick around in the rugs of your home for too long. In that case, they will start contributing to allergies and possibly cause problems for anyone with asthma or other respiratory problems.
The way that you clean an area rug should not be treated lightly. In addition to regular vacuuming to remove dust, deep cleaning should be done periodically to extract all the particles your vacuum can't, as well as remove any spots that have appeared. In order to extend and not hinder the lifespan of your rug, we recommend choosing a professional that can get rid of all the particles and residue that has gotten stuck in your rug. And not just any professional. Rugs are much more delicate than carpet and therefore, should be cleaned more carefully. Often, deep cleaning can bleed the colors of a rug if not taken care of properly. The professional technicians at Zerorez® Cincinnati are experienced at cleaning and handling area rugs with care.
