Winter is here. It’s not all cold, snow and blustery winds, though. That’s right, with winter comes the joy of the holidays.
Holidays are a wonderful time of year filled with good food, laughter, friends and family. But, unfortunately, those visitors don’t just bring their suitcases and smiles with them; they also bring dirt, spills, clutter and clean-up.
Kenosha Carpet Cleaning Blog is here to help you with some carpet cleaning tips to limit the mess and the stress this holiday season. Here’s how to enjoy a happier, healthier and cleaner home this holiday season:Rugs
Place area rugs throughout the higher traffic areas of your home, like around entryways, at the bottom of stairs or in the traffic paths around furniture. Area rugs add an element of décor to your home and protect carpet from staining and wear and tear due to the heavy traffic from guests over the holidays. For fun, choose a rug with a festive print or pattern.
Politely request that guests remove their shoes before they come in your home to celebrate. Shoes and boots often have dirt, debris, sludge, and oils on their soles. Not to mention wet boots from the winter snow. If guests remove their boots and shoes before entering your house, it should limit dirt reaching your carpet.
Vacuuming before guests arrive will help prevent everyday dirt from accumulating and sitting your carpet, before even more dirt is brought in from holiday guests. You don’t want dirt on top of dirt or dirt further grounded into the carpet fibers.
Once your guests have left, be sure to vacuum right away to avoid food crumbs from sticking to the carpet and turning into mold and bacteria. Go over the heavier traffics multiple times in multiple directions to ensure each inch has been attended to.
Despite your best efforts, there is a very good chance that one of your guests, younger or older, is likely to spill a drink or liquid somewhere on your carpet. If there is a stain on your carpet, blot it with lukewarm water immediately to prevent it from sinking into the carpet pad. Follow our spot removal tips to ensure the stain doesn’t become a permanent addition to your carpet.
