Simple Steps you can take to extend the Life of your Rugs

4 Feb

In the Northeast section of Pennsylvania the harsh snowy and wintery weather can wreak havoc on your Carpets, Fine Area Rugs, Furniture and Health. You have been closed up in the house with all the salt, ice melt, bacteria and other allergens that can cause damage to your valued possessions and trigger allergies.

Vacuuming carpets at least three times per week, if not daily, can aide in containing the mess until you start your SPRING CLEANING. Particulate soils can build up causing abrasion and an early demise to floor coverings. It’s best to use a HEPA filter vacuum to capture and prevent these contaminants from affecting your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

Proper entrance mats outside can assist in removing some of the slop from shoes prior to entering the home. Be sure and purchase a mat that is specifically designed for this purpose. Be sure to clean out the mat often.

Rotating your rugs frequently will allow area rugs to wear more evenly and prevent one area from becoming sun bleached. A good pad under the rugs is a good way to soften the blow from traffic too.
