Cleaning your floor in the winter can quickly turn into a tedious chore. The winter months bring dirt and grime into the workspace. With temperatures changing and weather taking a turn, it’s best to keep your floors spick and span. There are quite a few factors that will try to mess up your floor this winter, but don’t fret because here we have identified a few of the best practices for cleaning up after these unavoidable messes. 

Blowing in the wind, and into your door:

Leaves are scattered upon the ground after the windy fall season. Depending on the weather they are either soggy and wet, or dry and coming into your space, uninvited. Either way, they are tracked into your office foyer, only to leave a mess. Ensure your entry way stays spick and span with a little extra love and care throughout the colder months. We recommend creating a vacuuming/mopping schedule to ensure you stay on top of the mess, before it gets worse! Yes, more time and effort will have to be put into cleaning during the winter season, but the diligence is well worth it.

Good as new:

Wet, silty, muddy shoes often deteriorate carpets during the winter season. It’s hard to avoid coming inside without wet feet during this time of year. Work boots from being outside all day, wet heels in the office space, a quick coffee run at lunch will all result in  soggy feet… The situations are endless! Over time you will slowly start to notice footprints embedding themselves into the carpet. Investing in carpet cleaning this season will be very beneficial for you. Doing so will help get rid of not only those pesky prints, but the unwanted odors that come accompany all the dirt and mud. This is a budget friendly option that will keep your carpets looking as good as new. 

Don’t get Salty:

The salt that keeps us safe from the ice outside can be dangerous when tracked in and spread upon your floor. Up to 80% of dirt is tracked in on the soles of shoes the second people walk through the front door. This will quickly take a huge toll on every type of flooring, and can even be a safety issue for your customers. To stop salt and grime from deteriorating your flooring this winter, we suggest purchasing floor mats for your foyer. They are an easy investment to help you resolve this issue. You may even want to consider adding more mats to your repertoire for those extra wet days. Doing so will help soak up the slush and dirt before it has the chance to take over your space.
