In addition to the cold and brisk air associated with winter, you are also sure to encounter slush from the snow and salt on icy days. That mess will easily attach itself to your shoes and find its way into your home, leaving stains on your carpet and even your hardwood floors. To keep your home looking its best throughout the winter, you’ll have to employ some regular cleaning techniques that get up the salt and slush before it gets the chance to work itself into your flooring. Here are some tips for keeping your home clean this winter.
Use a Mat
One of the simplest and efficient tips for keeping your home clean in the winter is to use a mat at your entrances. You may even consider placing one outside on your porch and inside your doorway. This will give yourself and your guests two places to wipe their feet before they enter further into your home. The key to the effectiveness of using a mat is to find one made of a material that will absorb the moisture from the slush.
The salt and dirt from your shoes can easily become embedded into the fibers of your carpet. Therefore, in the winter you’ll have to vacuum consistently. Don’t wait until you see the dirt on your carpet – that means that there’s probably another layer below. Choose a day each week to vacuum and remember to clean out the vacuum itself to make sure that it is functioning at its best.
Take Off Our Shoes
Use an old shoe rack or designate a space near your doorway to store your shoes while they dry. This will keep the dirt and mud from spreading further into your home. When you get home and when guests come to visit, they can easily slip off their shoes and set them to the side.
