The Outdoors Vs Your Carpet: How To Keep Your Carpet Clean This Spring
Spring is in full swing and summer is creeping up on the horizon. While this time of year may be great for spending time in the great outdoors with the kids, spring and summer can take a major toll on your carpet.
From allergens to mud-tracking, you’d be surprised by just how much of the outdoors make their way indoors this season. To help you keep your carpet clean, here are a few tips and tricks you can use.
Remember that mats are your friends
It’s always a good idea to have a mat at your front door and your back door throughout the year. Mats help to keep dirt in one place and off your carpet where it can stain easily and track around the house.
Mats also help to keep allergens from creeping into your carpet. Allergens like ragweed and pollen can latch on to your shoes and bury themselves into your carpet where they’ll stay even after you vacuum. Only a professional carpet care cleaning can efficiently and effectively kick allergens out.
Create a no-shoes rule
Some families choose to have a no-shoes rule during the winter months when the ground is muddy. But it’s a good idea to have a no-shoes rule year-round.
Teach your kids (and yourself) to leave your shoes by the door in a designated spot. You’ll be less likely to track in dirt, debris, and allergens onto your carpet.
Place a rug near the door by the deck or patio
Mats aren’t the only thing that can help to protect your carpet. Rugs are also a great way to create a safety barrier that also looks really nice.
The area between your deck or patio and your house can be susceptible to dirt and stains because guests and family members are coming in and out both with shoes and without shoes. In some cases, they may also be carrying a beverage which could spill if they’re not careful. Because accidents happen, consider laying a rug by this door to protect your carpet from spills and other stains.
