During a year, up to 2–3 kg of dust can accumulate in a medium-sized carpet.
Oblivion and new life
At the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, carpets, especially wall carpets, abruptly went out of fashion, becoming a relic of the “soviet past”. As it usually happens, the attribute, so beloved until recently, had many shortcomings: in particular, they suddenly remembered that these were not the most hygienic products. This is partly a justified claim: up to 2–3 kg of dust can accumulate in a medium-sized carpet per year. (depending on the degree of cleanliness of the air in the house and the frequency of cleaning), not to mention other debris and small parasites living in the pile.
Today, at a new round of fashion, wall carpets are regaining their lost positions: they serve as a bright accent, help to zone a room or “make friends” with each other multi-colored interior details. Another thing is that it is no longer customary to cover the entire wall with a carpet – it should occupy no more than a third of its width. Today, carpets of unusual shapes and small sizes are relevant, they are often placed in a frame or even under glass, like paintings. New materials do not allow modern carpets to become dust collectors, and household cleaning equipment has advanced a lot over the past years, so the ancient ritual of carpet beating on a yard horizontal bar or on fresh snow has remained in the last century.
