Winter Deep Clean
As we ring in the holiday season, we’re reminded of the things we want to leave out of our homes during the holidays: snow, ice and salt. Winter debris can damage your floor, but a good deep clean will keep the debris at bay, giving you more time to enjoy the season rather than worrying about floors.
As roads and walkways get hit with snow and ice, we turn to using sand, salt or other ice melting products to make things safer. However, what’s safe for outside use can be damaging indoors. Ice melting products can be abrasive to floors and finishes and can leave a greasy film on floors when tracked in. Grit and debris can get tracked in throughout the year, but this issue is greater in the winter months.
Deep cleaning is a great way to protect floors from winter debris, but winter cleaning can also make spring cleaning even easier. Winter cleaning is important when dealing with dust and other allergens since winter air is drier. Tackling cleaning projects in the winter will give you more time to enjoy the warm weather when it arrives. Also, we tend to stay indoors more during the winter, so why not put some of that time to good use?

Have a specific place to put wet shoes so that the excess water doesn’t get to your floors. Consider having back up mats to ensure that they are always clean and dry to best absorb water.
Make it a habit to deal with wet shoes/paws.
Make it known to kids and guests that you want shoes off before they enjoy the floor. Having a specific, visible area for shoes is a great reminder that shoes must come off. For pet issues, train them to stop at the door and wait while you dry their paws. Having treats after drying is a great way to reinforce good behavior.
Use humidifiers/dehumidifiers for constant control.
Ideal humidity levels range between 40% - 60%. Portable or whole-house humidifiers help keep the humidity level constant. If you are using portable humidifiers, remember that you may need more than one to properly regulate your room or house.
