Replacing hard wood floors and over all cleaning of wall-to-wall carpets can be a big job and is expensive. Area rugs are also good cover ups for floors or carpets that are stained and are hard to clean. But besides its bandage-like characteristic, area rugs as well as carpets can reduce sound wave travels inside a room. Unlike hard wood floors that tend to bounce off the sounds of your televisions or mp3 players, area rugs and carpets help suck up the noise. Sound reduction is helpful especially to those who live in apartment buildings. This would prevent your neighbors from knocking on your door and disturb you watching your favorite TV shows just to shut you up.
Increasing the life of your area rug: Did you know that rugs wear out from the underside first? This is because the rug is constantly being rubbed and crushed against the floor when anyone walks on it. A rug pad will cushion the rug and keep it looking good for a lot longer than just having the rug on the floor. You don't want your new rug to age prematurely.
Tips for Using Vacuum Tools - If you choose to use a vacuum tool attachment in lieu of the actual vacuum cleaner itself, take care not to use excessive suction. Many vacuum cleaners allow you to control the amount of suction that is used in such situations; set yours so that it's not sucking too hard on your area rug. Watch Out for the Fringe - The fringed border of an area rug should be avoided when vacuuming. Fringe can fray or even get wrapped up around the beater brush of a vacuum cleaner. Nothing detracts from the appearance of a gorgeous rug quite like stray pieces of fringe, so always use caution.
