What we do not know about carpets
What do you know about the carpets in your home? You probably don't know as much about that soft texture as you think, what we do know for sure is that rugs are found in almost every space in the house, but how much do you really know about rugs?
Nine facts about carpets
- The word “carpet” comes from the Latin word “carpere” which means “to pluck”, and this information can be supported by the fact that the first forms of carpets were made of fluffed fabrics.
- Some carpets are known to be made of recycled plastic, others are made of wool, and this wool can sometimes be home to beetle larvae, which have chemicals in their stomachs that turn wool into sugars, which is why insects eat carpets, such as Sweets are eaten!
- It prevents allergens from spreading in the air inside the room, because these materials collect inside and under the carpet all the time. Ultimately, these dust and dust particles can be easily removed with a vacuum cleaner or with professional cleaning in carpet cleaning laundries.
- The bacteria can live for more than four weeks on carpet (and other floor surfaces), and can transfer to any food once the surface of the carpet is touched. Which makes people who underestimate eating food after it falls on the carpet to reconsider.
- Carpets and small carpeted spaces are actually healthier than hardwood floors because they trap allergens instead of spreading them throughout the space, plus the spaces feel great after you put the rugs in!
- Carpets should be professionally cleaned at least every 9 to 12 months to maintain their appearance and improve indoor air quality.
- Carpet making is a very old trade dating back to BC, and a skill that requires mastery and ingenuity to this day.
- In the beginning, vacuum cleaners were hard to sell when they were first offered for commercial use because people didn't think there could be so much dirt in their carpets!
- Not only is a carpet a piece of art, a unique piece of furniture, or a comfort for your feet, but it also has health benefits as it actually helps prevent allergens if maintained properly.
