If someone asked you to name the number of times you clean your carpet or tiled floor at home, you might say many. Indeed, the statistic for home cleaning shows that carpets get a thorough clean at least once a month and a gentle clean on a weekly basis. However, these carpets continue to get old in their look because of the furniture sitting on them. Unlike the feet stepping on the carpet and leaving dirt, which is easy to clean, the furniture leaves no dirt. However, it is does something else that is worrying; it messes the physical appearance of the carpet. The solution is to use a chair leg pad for every furniture piece. Here are the advantages of the small accessory for your home or office.
You can get self-stick pads
The self-stick pads are awesome because they are so easy to install. You only have to detach them from their protective sleeve and attach them to the bottom of the chair. They are most useful to chairs that are easy to lift to access the underside and those with a covered surface leg. However, they mostly come in small packages. A typical package may have 18 pieces enough for a few chairs. Therefore, consider getting more if you are eyeing a piece to use for all your furniture in the kitchen including the table and stools.
Say No to hideous scratching sound
The leg pads are for the protection of your carpet; they are also quite useful for the prevention of scratches and the accompanying sounds when you are pulling furniture. Most people will have young ones at home who may not have enough strength for lifting chairs. Thus, they tend to pull them across the room. The act itself is not annoying, but the sounds from it can disturb the tranquil silence of a room especially when you are reading. Furthermore, most people will pull a chair to sit and after sitting. These frequent pulls become so disturbing, and they can be a source of tension in the house when one person keeps shouting at others to stop pulling chairs. Say no to the tension and the disturbances by getting the leg pad. It solves the problem well.
You get a large variety
No one wants to get a pad that will be sticking to the eye because of its color or pattern. Thankfully, you can pick any color under the sun for your leg pad, and make sure that no part of the fixed furniture is looking wrong in any way. Furthermore, you can combine colors when you want a subtle method of identifying what goes where when arranging kitchen and dining chairs.
Failure to invest in the pads would cost you the equivalent of a carpet replacement. The amount can go high when you consider the prices of exotic handwoven carpets. On the other hand, the scratches on your tiles and different floor types including wood can be hard to remove and leave you with a need for expensive home renovation projects. Instead, the pad will cost a few dollars and save you all that stress and expense.
