You may expect the harsh winter weather to affect your home's exterior, but how much can it affect the interiors? To help you keep the rain and mud outside and off your flooring, use these tips.

Tips to Help You Keep Your Floors Clean During the Winter

Planning on hosting some holiday parties in your home this winter? While this may be tons of fun, it can also lead to new carpet stains and wear that won't be as fun. So, how can you enjoy your holiday get-togethers while also keeping your flooring in top shape? Tacoma Cleanpro has some tips that can help with that.

Start With the Outdoors

Your home's exterior may seem like it has nothing to do with how clean your flooring stays, but the truth is that it can affect your home's overall cleanliness. If your porch or entryways are riddled with dirt, moisture, dry leaves, and other debris, these will have an easier time getting into your home and staining your flooring. Because of this, it's important to keep this area as clean as you can. Storms will happen and they will probably drag debris into your porch, so do your best to make time to clean this space often.

Invest in Doormats

Doormats may look like simple decorations, but they actually serve a very useful purpose. If you don't already have doormats at your entryways, this is the perfect time to look for a festive and functional doormat that will help reduce the amount of dirt and water that get dragged into your home. A sturdy doormat should be placed outside your home so that you and all your guests are able to wipe mud, water, and other debris off of their shoes before stepping inside. You can also place another doormat inside your home to remove any leftover debris. This is also perfect for changing into your indoor shoes.

Use Throw Rugs

Area rugs are ideal for placing over carpeted areas of your home that see the most foot traffic. Since these areas tend to get worn faster than the rest of the carpet, an area rug will help them maintain their spring for longer. Area rugs can be a bit pricey so it's understandable that you'd be cautious before investing in these. A great alternative to investing in area rugs is purchasing throw rugs. Throw rugs are more affordable and easier to maintain since you can just toss them in the wash whenever they're in need of a cleaning. No matter how much work you put into keeping your carpets clean, a professional carpet cleaning will be needed to deep clean your carpets at least once a year. The holiday season is the perfect time to get your carpets clean and ready to host your guests.

Vacuum Even More Than Usual

Vacuuming is crucial if you want to keep your carpet looking great, so chances are you already do this often. However, during the winter you will have to vacuum more often than usual. The reason for this is that more dirt and debris will get tracked into your home than usual. This increase in dirt can lead to stains, dinginess, and general deterioration of your carpet. Because of this, it's important that you vacuum more often than you would during any other season.

Keep Your Pets Clean

If you have pets in your home that will need to step outside every so often, don't forget that they can also drag dirt into your home. Pets are generally excited to head back inside and may dart in quickly, leaving you with little time to check their paws and coat for dirt and moisture. This can lead to serious stains on your carpet and even mold growth. Prevent this by calmly walking your pets inside and cleaning them off before letting them run back indoors. Create a space at your entryway with a mat where you can sit your pet as you clean them off. Keep some clean washcloths handy so that you have something to clean their paws off with and dry their coat.
