Home Living : February 28th 2012
MB HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, February 28, 2012 1 QUALITY CAN SAVE ENERGY CHOOSE TO SUIT LIFESTYLE Janita Singh Carpets help retain warmth in a room and make a great floor covering for children. MAINTENANCE If it vacuums up then it ain't dirty, is usually how carpet owners think. But what most don't know is the industry recommends that carpets should be cleaned at least once every year. It's worth every cent having your carpet professionally cleaned. You may be able to negotiate a price with a carpet company if you use them regularly. There is a wide range of DIY professional carpet care products that can also help. Carpets need to be regularly vacuumed, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Spills are part of every carpet. Carefully blot up any spill but do not rub. There are many products available that can be applied straight to the spill and won't stain. Work from the outside inwards to avoid the spill or stain spreading out. CARPETS PICKING floor coverings is a personal choice. Your lifestyle and cost will be two major driving forces. The debate over which is best -- carpet or hard floor- ing -- has been going on for many years. In Australia, while many love timber flooring, just as many still opt for carpets to project that cosy feel for their homes. Carpets make sense for countries that have cooler climates. The benefits de- rived from selecting good quality carpets in any type of application are manifold. These include sound insu- lation, energy savings, comfort underfoot, a safe, non-slip floor and easy in- stallation and cleaning of many of the contemporary varieties. Today's new range also gives consumers great flexibility on design and quality. Carpets can also help re- tain warmth in a room. They have low heat conduc- tion and are natural ther- mal insulators, creating a heat barrier. Go to your hardware or carpet store and give them as much information as possible to pick one that suits your lifestyle. Seen any great ideas?
