Carpets are one of the more fundamental and convenient home decor elements in your home. At Triple S, we’re passionate about these textiles and love to learn and educate our customers about them. Are you ready for a little carpet trivia? Let’s begin:
Fact #1 – The oldest carpet in the world is the Pazyryk carpet. It was dug up by archeologists from the grave of a Scythian prince in 1949. The carpet is believed to be over 2,000 years old.
Fact #2 – Without professional carpet and upholstery cleaning, bacteria can grow more rapidly than usual, which can lead to health complications.
Fact #3 – Approximately 65 percent of living rooms and 80 percent of bedrooms are carpeted in homes, making it surprisingly more popular than hardwood.
Fact #4 – It’s more hygienic to choose smaller rugs as compared to wall-to-wall carpeting, as they are easier-to-clean endpoints.
Fact #5 – Iran is home to the longest carpet in the world. The Qasr al-Alam carpet was designed and completed in 2007 by Ali Khaliqi, an Iranian artist. It was woven for 16 months by 1,200 women.
Fact #6 – Most area rugs are extremely durable and can last a lifetime if properly cared for.
Fact #7 – It is said that regular and professional carpet maintenance and upholstery cleaning can significantly improve the air quality in your home when dust and allergies get trapped.
