Taking Care Of Your Floors During The Winter

From the décor and furniture, to the appliances and flooring, it’s important to have a home that is well-maintained. With winter upon us, our homes, especially our floors, are prone to be damaged from winter debris. To learn how you can protect your floors, read our top floor care tips for the cold!

Door Mats Will Be Your Best Friend

Use door mats both inside and outside each entryway, as they will be the first stop in keeping the winter elements outside. Door mats are also great at keeping moisture at bay, so don’t overlook the power that mats can have in your home this winter!

Vacuum Often

Salt can scratch hardwood and easily get lost in your carpet, so staying up to date with your vacuuming will prevent hidden damage to your floors. We recommend vacuuming daily for maximum preservation in high traffic areas.

Have Cleaning Supplies on Hand

It’s important that you have cleaning products in your closet or in a cabinet. Brooms, mops, an iRobot, and our Resista cleaning products are all great options that you can use when it comes time to clean your floors this winter.

Invest In Rugs

Rugs in your entryway and hallways are not only perfect for adding character to your floors, but they also prevent excess dirt and water from damaging your floors. While the rugs will hold onto dirt and water, you can easily clean your area rugs with your vacuum or use one of our cleaning products to pick up the residue.
