Many of us are guilty of picking up the corner of a large 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 extravagant handbag was manufactured in a fifth world sweatshop, but 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 hot air rises plus cool air sinks. As the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C idea 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; Vacuuming is 1 plan 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 increasing those Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C filters or keeping reUSble 1s clean plus fresh. A wonderful time to change this is when a qualified Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C serviceperson visits to get your Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C idea ready for the increasing 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.S, department of Energy who advises that “the most crucial service job that will ensure the efficiency of your A/C is to routinely replace or clean its filters.”
