Let’s face it- no one likes dirty and grimy carpets. No matter how hard we might try, dirt will always find a way into our homes.
However, there are a few small things that we can do to help minimize the amount of soil that we track into our homes and onto our carpets.
A clean house on the inside begins on the outside. So with that in mind, it is important to keep the sidewalks and front and rear door steps clean and well swept.
Next, a good quality door mat is a necessity at all entry doors. On the inside of each entry door you will need a washable walk-off mat, the longer the better- usually 6 to 10 ft will do fine. Remember to keep these mats well vacuumed, as you do not want to redistribute old soil from your walk-off mats through the house. If you want to go the next step, you might want to get into the habit of removing your street shoes and wear a pair of house slippers around the house.
