Rugs are smaller-sized carpets. Unlike carpets, they are applied to a small patch of the floor. Apart from aesthetics and designs, for instance, the Arabic or aztec inspired rug, they do play crucial health roles in the bodies of human beings. Here is a summary of the health benefits of rugs.
The benefits of a rug
Protection against harmful microbes
The most important health benefit of rugs is the protection against micro-organisms such as bacteria and fungi. The floor of any room is a breeding place for harmful microorganisms. As you walk on the floor, these microbes can come into contact with your skin and infect you with various diseases. The number of diseases that can be caught this way is overwhelmingly big. For this reason, it is important that you buy anti-microbial rugs such as the Boogie – Rust rug, Ancestry and Big Chief Aztec rugs for every room of your house.
Protection against fire
Some rugs are fire-resistant, keeping fires away. If you know the type of a master fire is, you will look for a fire-resistant rug like the Cabin Craft or the Big Chief Aztec rugs. When a room catches fire, the worst thing that can happen is fire spreading on the floor. You will not know which way to go to salvage the property inside. You are also at a very high risk of getting burned yourself. Fire-resistant rugs do not catch fire. They, therefore, keep you safe as you put out the fire in the room.
Insulation against excessive heat and cold
Rugs are designed to lay flat on the ground. They insulate a room against extreme weather conditions- keeping it warm in winter and cold in summer. Extreme cold is a risk factor for many diseases, just like extreme warmth. Rugs create a micro-climate in the room by keeping off excess heat and excess cold.
Protection to children and pets
Rugs keep children and pets safe at home. Children and pets are the busy bees at home- making every room their playground. They have a right to play, so there is nothing wrong with getting down and dirty on the floor. Placing rugs on the floor is a safety measure that makes a room comfortable conducive for playing. Comfort loves health. With a rug on the floor, even when a child falls, the impact is less compared to the way it would have been if the child fell on a hard concrete floor
Protection against noise pollution
Consider a woman in heels walking on concrete or a tile floor. The noise her heels make as they hit the floor is very distractive especially in commercial settings. If she walks on a rug, there is less noise pollution, and people go about their activities with ease.
In summary, when buying rugs, consider the safety aspects of various types of rugs before making your choice. Choose rugs made of premium nylon. These rugs do not emit harmful gases into the atmosphere. Fire-resistant rugs that have been designed to lay flat on the floor are great for health benefits, just like anti-microbial rugs. Some of the best rugs for both beauty and health benefits include the Foothills rug, Ghost Rider, Heritage and other models of Aztec rugs.
