Many of us are guilty of picking up the corner of a big section rug and 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 sweatshopâ€¦ One of the worst offenders of literally sweeping dirt under the rug is a home’s Heating, Ventilation as well as 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 and cool air sinks. As the Heating, Ventilation as well as 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 and dander, and anything else that would normally be trapped by the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C filters, however vacuuming is a single method commonly used to minimize the filtration soil if you don’t cheat and sweep that last bit of it under the rug, but homeowners must also be diligent about increasing those Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C filters or keeping reUSble a singles clean and fresh. A good time to change this is when a qualified Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C serviceperson visits to get your Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system 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, however department of Energy who advises that “the most pressing maintenance job that will ensure the efficiency of your a/c is to routinely update or clean its filters.”
