Happy Lumpy Rug Day!

So while the tradional meaning of Lumpy Rug Day has more to do with the metaphor of sweeping things under the rug, we thought today serves as a great reminder to take a close look at any rugs lying around your home.

Rugs can be the cause of numerous home accidents, whether it be tripping and falling over a lumpy rug, or a fire starting due to a wire running underneath a rug.

So in honor of Lumpy Rug Day, take some time to check out your rugs -- maybe take them outside and air them out and beat them with one of those old-fashioned rug beaters you admire in old movies. And be sure that no electrical wires of any kind are running underneath your rugs!
