Sturdy Walk-off Mats
Be sure to grab a durable, sturdy mat to keep in high traffic areas where people are coming in with dirty, snow / salt filled shoes. This one is great for indoor and outdoor use because it won’t hold on to moisture. It comes in a variety of colors and sizes too!
Shoe / Boot Trays
Boot and shoe trays are a good way to contain the moisture that comes off shoes, and to keep floors clean in the winter. This one is great for storing in the garage, or by the door where you frequently come in and out.
Vacuum up the Salt
A reliable, and portable vacuum is good to have on hand for quickly cleaning up the salt that comes in off of shoes. Salt can scratch hardwood finishes, so it’s best to sweep or vacuum often. Be careful using swiffer types of dusters. The small grains of salt can get trapped under the head of the swiffer and too much pressure causes scratching. The Shark cordless stick vacuum is a great option.
Buy a Hardwood Floor Cleaner
Champion Floor Company sells this stuff in their showroom, but you can also purchase it via Amazon. It’s a good spot cleaner that will allow you to easily keep floors looking great in-between deep cleans.
Get Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned
Getting your carpets professionally cleaned every 18 months or so will keep them looking great. If you don’t want to pay a professional, there are some great steam cleaners you can purchase to keep at home too. These work well on carpets and upholstery!
