Keeping Your Floors Clean in the Winter

Between snow and salt being tracked in, muddy shoes, and other outdoor debris being tracked in, it can seem nearly impossible to keep your floors clean in the winter. The dirty feeling underfoot, not to mention possible staining, is less than desirable. We’ve put together a list of ways you can be proactive to keep your floors clean all winter long!

Use Door Mats

This may seem like an obvious one, but you’d be surprised at the difference a good quality doormat can make! Using them both inside and outside entryways will act as the first barrier against salt and dirt. Be sure to invest in a quality mat that will not hold onto moisture (then you’ll be dealing with bigger problems- mold!)

Shoe Trays

Getting a shoe tray to encourage family members and guests to take shoes off right at the door can keep salt and mud from being tracked all around the house. Salt can scratch, stain, and even eat away at hardwood floors, so it’s well worth the effort to put a halt before spreading it.

Sweep or Vacuum up Salt

If salt does make its way across your floors, sweeping or vacuuming is your best bet to remove it without damage. Be wary that Swiffers and similar dusters can trap salt underneath the head, which can result in scratching of your floors.

Cleaning Carpets

Not only are your carpets dirty from outside debris being tracked in, but in the winter when the heat is on full blast and the windows all closed up, your carpets are also filled with dust. We would recommend using the Majestic Carpet Extraction Cleaner for a full clean, or the Majestic Triple Action to treat stains. These products will leave your carpets looking good as new.
