Area rugs act as filters for dust and allergens and are actually good for your health. We all need to change our air filters from time to time in our home because they trap dirt and maintain the indoor air quality. Think of an area rug the same way. For optimum health, you need to replace your air filters in your home every 3 months or so. Luckily it’s not too expensive to have them replaced. On the other hand, replacing an area rug doesn’t come that cheap. Cleaning it is your best option and regular, thorough vacuuming and washing of your rugs is essential.
