If you’re like me, you know how aggravating and inconvenient clogging can be for you. It’s embarrassing, it’s painful, it’s annoying. And most of all, it’s an embarrassing annoyance. I’ll take you through some of the basic pros and cons of carpet installation for reducing and eliminating your problem with it.
The main benefit to using this product is that it reduces or eliminates the inconvenience of having to deal with a frustrating carpet that is backed up with feces and hair. In fact, over the past decade, with the consistent and widespread increase in the occurrence of clogging in public places like restaurants, hotels and clinics, this product has become more common place than you might think. A simple search on Google will find a multitude of references to how easily this product can solve your public restroom problems. So installation isn’t difficult, and it isn’t expensive.
Now, let’s talk about some of the benefits of this solution for dealing with clogging in your own home. The first benefit of course is that it eliminates your problem with clogging. Now, I should point out that while this product does eliminate your clogging problems, there is a bit of a downside to it. That being the reduction in sound coming from your bathroom sinks. This is a minor downside given the benefits, but it’s worth noting.
Another pro is that this product keeps the noise level of your toilet/tap down to a minimum so that you’re not interrupted while you’re trying to do something like shave or brush your teeth. This is especially important if you have flat-footed people living with you. With flat-footed people the clogging often gets so loud that you’re unable to even hear the tap to get the person out. This can cause them a great deal of discomfort and inconvenience when you’re doing something as simple as brushing your teeth.
There are three styles of Irish dancing and they all require a lot of equipment: clogs, shoes, and irises. In the case of flat-footed clogging it’s important to note that irises are not actually required by the Irish culture. I say “cultural” because it is what the Irish call their style, and their dances are based around this very movement. However, these shoes can make the flat-footed dancing experience much more comfortable.
The next benefit to these devices is the ease in which they work. They require no plumbing or electricity and can be installed simply by screwing them into the floor. The flat-footed Irish dance steps involve a series of upbeats downbeat which, when done properly, produces a sound like metal hitting metal. For that reason the clogging and the accompanying music are integral to the performance. A good Irish dance school will have several classes for beginners with an emphasis on clogging because they are very easy to learn.
In summary, clogging works in the same way as traditional folk dancing when performed with a gait that includes shifting weight from heel to toe and stepping up or down on the ball of the foot. This type of gait makes it easy for the dancer to change direction with the motion of the foot without changing footwear. Additionally, they do not require the complicated set up required by some other dance styles.
These three styles of Irish dance, have helped to make the clogging art form more accessible to people from all walks of life. This is a unique fusion of dance and music that can fit into any lifestyle. For instance, I am an outdoor type of person so I really do not see the need for a lesson. On the other hand, my partner and I do not really do much walking around either so we do not need lessons either. We just get out there on our feet and let ourselves be moved by the music.
