Holiday Floor Care Tips

1) In the event of harsh winter weather, enforce a strict “no shoes” policy for your home. Spread out an extra rug near the front door, and consider placing multiple mats or area rugs throughout high foot traffic areas and rooms.

2) With people, food and drinks abound, accidents and spills will inevitably occur. Avoid using overly wet cloths to wipe up the messes; dry or slightly damp clothes are particularly best for wood or laminate floors, which can warp and stain when they are exposed to too much moisture.

3) If you have a real tree rather than an artificial one, place a plastic mat under the tree skirt. The mat will prevent potential water damage due to spillage while watering your tree.
