Winter is a beautiful time of the year but it is also a very snowy, muddy, and rainy time of the year. Also, there are many family gatherings for the holidays and unfortunately there may be some spills and muddy foot prints. Here are some great tips to help you keep the floors in your home clean this winter:
Place mats at every entrance of the house.
Take off muddy/wet/snowy shoes and leave them at the entrance to the home or in a mud room. If mud does get on the carpet, then let the mud dry and shatter it, and then vacuum.
Sweep every day!
Vacuum every few days. When vacuuming vinyl, do not use a “beater bar” attachment; this can damage the flooring surface.
Clean up spills immediately!
Mop your floors every few days to clean up any dirt that the vacuum did not get.
