In a syndicated episode of Rules of Engagement, Jeff Bingham pokes fun at his wife, Audrey’s, obsession over buying a new rug. He insists that the current rug is doing its job because it’s keeping his feet from direct contact with the floor. Against his objection, Audrey drags him to a store to pick out a new rug anyway.
All comic relief aside, the banter between them provoked thought. Do rugs have a role more than just providing a soft place for your feet to land? The answer is YES! The rugs in your home have many important jobs to uphold.
