The holiday season is a time for gathering your friends and family around you to create long lasting memories together. Gatherings happen all over the country throughout the last few months of the year. If you are hosting any of these glorious events at your home you will want to make sure you have a plan on how to keep your home clean with all of these extra guests at your home. There are some things that you can do to avoid getting stains on your carpet in the first place. You can make sure you have a doormat at your front door. This will help prevent dirt and mud from coming into your home in the first place. The less dirt that comes in your home to begin with, the cleaner your carpets will be.
No Shoes on Carpet in the House Policy
You can also ask your guests to take their shoes off when they come into the door. You may want to have a few shoe racks set out to give them a place to put their shoes on when they come in. Some people do not like asking people to take their shoes off when they come in so you will need to decide if this option works for you or not.
Christmas Tree Stand Mat to Protect Carpet
When you put your Christmas tree up you will want to put a Christmas tree skirt underneath your tree. This is important with a fake or real tree. Having a Christmas tree skirt underneath your tree will make sure that your carpet does not pine needles, water, or sap on it. Fake trees do not require water and they do not have sap but they still have pine needles that could stain your carpet.
Avoid Food & Drink Spills on Carpet
Another way to prevent carpet stains is to be careful where you place your dining tables. If you are going to have children at your holiday event you will want to try and put the table that they will be eating at on a non-carpeted surface. If this is not an option you could put some plastic down underneath the kids table. Children do not mean to spill but they inevitably do. This step will definitely help your carpets stay clean. As you plan your holiday menu you will want to make your food selections carefully. Some foods are more notorious for staining your carpet. Red drinks, greasy food, and more can all stain your carpet if they are dropped. Choosing light colored drinks and food that is not greasy will help protect your carpet.
