Rotation Of The Oriental Rugs

In our home, we have hardwood floors covered by various sizes and types of rugs. In the living room and dining room, we have oriental rugs. Two are older (50-75 years) and one is newer (20 years).

"They" say oriental rugs should be rotated yearly to ensure that they wear evenly from foot traffic and sun. It's probably been 3 or 4 years since we've done this. Bad, bad, bad!

We rotated the two living room rugs this weekend. Which means practically every piece of furniture in the living room had to be moved. Which means the vacuum cleaner got a real workout, as well as the Swiffer. Cleaning with a Swiffer embarrasses me. How did all that dirt get in my house?

We still have to rotate the rug under our large dining room table. Who wants to come over this week and help us move the table?

  1. That's what I believe also Cindy though rotating rugs is a hard work also because it means you have to move the chairs, the table and everything under the rugs.

    But having rugs at home is great rather than seeing our floor with nothing in it. Have you tried using area rugs? Believe me they are great and eco-friendly.
