Flooring Winter Care

Fall means that winter is shortly to follow. This means that the conditions are going to be cold and wet. This can often have an effect on your flooring. Humidity changes and continual dirty wet water can cause your flooring to look less than appealing. Here at The Flooring Outlet we carry all types of flooring. This means that we also have the tips and tricks needed to keep them looking beautiful no matter what season it is. Here are some of the best ways to take care of your flooring this winter.


Yes, like we have said before you’ll need mats to protect your flooring. Whether its just wet outside or there was a sheet of ice outside and the city had to put ice melt on the roads you’re going to be dragging something into the home. Make sure that you have mats both inside and outside of the home at doors that lead to outside. After doing this you’ll want to regularly clean your carpet and mats with a snow melt neutralizer. This will help to make sure that residue from the snow melt won’t leave a stain on your carpet or mats.


However, there is more to caring for your floor than just putting mats down. You want to make sure that you keep up with the beauty of your home in the day to day life. Whether you have tile, wood, or carpet, it’s important to make sure that make your rounds daily around the house to see if it needs to be cleaned up from the wet shoes. Better yet train the rest of the family to clean up after themselves when they come into the home especially if they have the run of the house with their shoes on. The hardest part will be to train the dog. Making sure they don’t bring in the dirt and leaves in with them will be difficult. It’s especially hard when they love to roll around in it. Be sure to get in a routine of having your dog sit first to be able to wipe their paws down first before they are allowed into the rest of the house.
