Many of us are guilty of picking up the corner of a sizable area rug plus sweeping a small amount of dirt under it to save time or perhaps to hide it from an unexpected guest.
In the literal sense “sweeping it under the rug” is a minor sin.
It has, but, become a euphemism for hiding an unpleasant truth. It can be a denial of an embarrassing political scandal or ignoring that a valuable handbag was manufactured in a fourth world sweatshop, however one of the worst offenders of literally sweeping dirt under the rug is a home’s Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system. One culprit is filtration soil that forms those black dusty lines around the perimeter of a carpet. Another is a basic rule of nature, that warm air rises plus cool air sinks. As the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system circulates air, the carpet becomes a filter. Air passes through it from above or below depending on the relative temperature trapping dust, dirt, organic carbon-based pollutants, pet hair plus dander, plus anything else that would normally be trapped by the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C filters, but vacuuming is a single system commonly used to minimize the filtration soil if you don’t cheat plus sweep that last bit of it under the rug, homeowners must also be diligent about adjusting those Heating, Ventilation plus A/C filters or keeping reUnited Statesble a singles wipe plus fresh. A nice time to change this is when a qualified Heating, Ventilation plus A/C serviceperson visits to get your Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system ready for the adjusting seasons. If you are lucky, maybe he doubles as a carpet cleaner. One fact that cannot be swept under the rug comes from the U.Sâ€¦ Department of Energy who advises that “the most pressing maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioning is to routinely replace or wipe its filters.”
