Carpet / April 18, 2018 / Kaye Cooper
The outdoors is increasingly becoming an important part of our homes. Outdoor hearths and furniture are the perfect relaxation areas in the comfort and privacy of your own back yard. Pools, spas and hot tubs provide a personal luxury. With an indoor outdoor carpet, you can lay the perfect foundation and finishing touches for your outdoor spaces. Creating your own spa is not difficult in your own back yard or patio. The carpeting can be as luxurious as a Roman or Persian print with the convenience of the easy to care for indoor outdoor carpeting. Another idea is creating a play area outside for your kids by laying down the indoor outdoor carpet in a hop scotch pattern, or with race lines for racing hot wheel cars. The ideas are endless. The area will be easy to keep clean because the low pile of the carpet does not hold dirt or debris. A quick run with the vacuum or a wash with the hose makes the end of the day clean up a snap.
Prevention. First of all, you should try your level best to prevent problems from arising in the first place. For instance, if it is an area rug, make sure you and your kids remove their boots prior to stepping on it. Aside from this, food and drinks should also be kept away from the rug area if possible. Usually pets love to sleep on doormats, but make sure they do not. Instead, you should train your pets to make use of cats/dogs beds. Moreover, if your rug is expensive or decorative, it's not a good idea to spread it around an area where there is a lot of traffic. Ideally, you can place it in a doorway that people don't use very often. Make sure you don't put them in the main gate as this area gets a lot of traffic.
