The upcoming holiday season is sure to be full of fun family time, but this can also mean disaster for your carpets. If you're planning to host family events in your home, use these tips to keep your carpets clean.

Tips to Help Keep Your Carpets Clean This Holiday Season

The holiday season is full of fun, delicious food, and the perfect weather for staying under the covers all day. Unfortunately, as much as we'd like to stay in bed all day, this simply isn't possible. From running errands to preparing family get-togethers, there are plenty of reasons to grab your winter coat and head outside. With that being said, it's important that you do your best to keep your carpets clean after being outdoors in the winter weather. To help you keep your carpets clean this winter, use these simple tips.

Use a Welcome Mat

After running errands, your shoes may be a bit dirty, to say the least. If you've been forced to go out in the rain, your shoes may bet wet or even muddy. You definitely don't want any of that coming into your home and onto your carpet since water and mud can cause stains, mold growth, and a smelly carpet. Be sure to wipe off your shoes on your welcome mat before heading indoors. We understand that some welcome mats have some decorative elements to them, but aesthetics shouldn't be their only purpose; they should also be functional. A mat with bristles will be ideal because it will be able to scrape off any built on gunk your shoes may be carrying. If you're having guests over, be sure they clean off their shoes before heading into your home.

Invest in a Coat Rack

You may think coats pose no threat to your carpets, but they can actually be one of the many reasons your carpets can't seem to stay clean. For example, if your child has just gotten home on a rainy day, they will probably take their raincoat off as soon as they step inside. If they decide to simply throw this on the ground, the rainwater left on their coat can seep into your carpet, creating less than ideal conditions for your flooring. If you're having guests over, they may take their coats off and pile them on a couch, allowing excess rainwater to soak into your upholstery and drip onto your carpet. To avoid this, place a coat rack at the entrance of your home where everyone can store their coats while indoors. Be sure your coat rack isn't located on your carpet, but rather in a tile entryway that won't get damaged by a bit of water.

Leave Your Shoes at the Door

If you just now realized that a wet coat can do damage to your flooring, imagine what wet and dirty shoes can do. Shoes are actually one of the biggest stain causers when it comes to carpets because of the amount of contaminants they can carry indoors. Even if you wipe them down at the door, they can still carry moisture and other contaminants into your carpet. To avoid this altogether, simply leave your shoes at the door. If you're entertaining guests at home, kindly ask them to leave their shoes at the door as well. Have a shoe rack ready where they can leave their shoes for the evening. Be sure your home is also fully prepared to accommodate shoeless guests. Leaving your shoes at the door can be great for your carpets, but it also has many more benefits. Learn more about them here!

Prepare a Stain-Free Menu

As you prepare your menu for the night of your get-together, do your best to avoid food notorious for causing stains. Instead of serving red wine and punch, stick to clear or light colored liquids or something that's easier to remove from carpeting. Avoid messy, slimy food, as well as greasy food that can leave unsightly marks everywhere. It also helps to designate a children's area away from the carpet since the littlest ones can also be the messiest.
