Keeping winter from ruining your floors

winter tipsWinter has finally reared its ugly head here in the Long Beach Island region where we are located. It is our experience that once the coldest season strikes, your carpets and floors seemingly appear dirty and dingy all of the time.

The challenges of your families and your pets spending more time indoors – coupled with the tracking in of any ice-melt products when the snow finally does arrive can leave your floors wanting for seasons of old.

Therefore, we put together some quick tips to help ease the winter flooring doldrums from your home:

  • First of all, invest in sturdy entry mats for your home. This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised to learn that not all homes have them. A good mat will catch a majority of the soil that would otherwise come straight into the home.

  • Removing your shoes before entering the home. This will significantly cut down on what gets tracked inside. But even if you only walk on hard floors while wearing shoes, tracked-in soil will spread throughout the home.

  • If possible, vacuum weekly. This will serve to keep salt and loose soil out of the carpet will prolong the life of the floor, helping to prevent fiber damage, and as well as prevent dust mites and other microscopic pests from penetrating deep into carpets.

  • Finally, hire us here at Bayside Carpet Cleaning for a professional and thorough cleaning of your carpets and floors that should last well into the spring if you also follow our aforementioned tips.

We hope you will utilize our service to help you and your family survive the winter doldrums!
