Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day everyone!
Hope you’re one of the lucky ones that has today off. I thought I would suggest OUT OF AFRICA for those in the area. This place is much more fun than the typical zoo, because you can really get up close to the animals. (That is if you think being licked by a giraffe like I was is fun)
For all the other readers that have today off and won’t be taking a trip to OUT OF AFRICA, this might be the perfect day to catch up on your errands such as bringing in your area rugs for a cleaning. Did you know that area rugs should be professionally cleaned every 2 to 3 years to keep them looking and wearing their best. A buildup of dry soil is extremely harmful and grinds away at the rug fibers. This causes premature wear and tear and is irreversible. Traffic lanes will not go away if in fact it is wear and tear. By professionally cleaning your area rugs regularly, you help insure that the dry soil is removed – removing the "sandpaper like" grinding away of your fibers.
Additionally spills causing spots means there is a foreign substance in the rug and this can also be harmful to the fibers. Animal urine is one of these spots that is especially harmful to rug fibers and can even cause dry rot in the rug!
So today might just be the perfect day to focus on having your rugs cleaned.
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
