If you have kids and they've ever left crayons in the back seat of the car on a hot summer's day, you have had an involuntary crash course on the power of the sun. Yet even without adding a substance with such a low melting point as a crayon to the mix, the sun can easily damage girl_playing.jpgyour car's upholstery or that of any furniture in your house or office if directly exposed to the sun. Just take a look at the damage done to the paint of any car parked outside for a year or two and you'll get a good idea of how powerful the sun can be -- certainly the upholstery or leather on your favorite couch or easy chair doesn't stand a chance. In any office building, hotel, or restaurant, the sun can damage carpetting, furniture, and even walls! Particularly for those of us who live south of the Mason-Dixon line, the sun's power is to be taken extremely seriously.
