5 Tips To Keep Your Floors Looking Good As New All Winter Long

By , On , In Care & Maintenance, Seasonal
Exterior of home during snowy winter

The Canadian winter elements will take its toll on your floors if you let it. Rock salt, snow and mud are not kind to our floors as they can scratch, stain and crack the floor. This is why we are sharing 5 easy tips to help prevent damage to your floors during the winter season. Fight sign of wear and tear with these floor maintenance tips:

1. Watch for Spills

This goes for anytime of the year but especially in the winter when we are trekking in water and snow from the outdoors. Also, this is the time of year for large gatherings so be diligent about wiping and cleaning up spills immediately. Even the smallest of spills can leave long-term damage. It is best to always have a cloth tucked away for quick and easy cleanups.

2. Prevent Damage from Rock Salt

Rock salt is great for preventing people and cars from slipping on icy and slick patches, however our floors are not a fan. The rough crystal of rock salt can not only scratch the surface of the floor but the salt itself can leave stains. To avoid rock salt from being trekked throughout your home it is best to place welcome mats inside as well as outside the front door and area rugs in high-traffic areas.

3. Practice Routine Maintenance

Following a regular maintenance schedule all year round will give your floors a solid baseline before winter really kicks in. Keep up with your regular sweeping, dusting, and mopping to prevent dust and salt from building up before and during the winter months.

4. Teach your Family

Having a “leave your shoes at the door” policy will benefit your floors all year, especially in the winter when we are trekking in wet and snow-covered items. Teach your family to wipe their feet, take off their shoes, remove snow covered clothing before entering the home and to wipe up any spills or messes immediately. Taking the time to establish ground rules with your family will result in good habits, preserve the longevity of your floors, prevent slips and falls and reduce the time you spend cleaning up after them.

Put out shoe racks and storage bins to stay organized and keep the mess off your floors. Using a shoe rack or storage bin will help prevent the winter elements from being tracked throughout your home and can help hide the mess of snow pants, toques and mittens. Have a front entrance closet? Even better! You can discretely tuck away the shoe racks or bins.

5. Train your Pets

Stop your pets at the door to wipe off their feet and any other water or snow. Pets give no thought to trekking in mud, snow or debris throughout your home so you will have to train them. Train them to stop at the door, wait for their paws to be cleaned and then go. Always reward good patience and behavior so we suggest leaving a towel and jar of treats at the door as a reminder for your animal. Hopefully, after only a few training sessions your pet will be trained!
