Tips to Keeping Mud Out of Your House During the Rainy Weather

4/9/2019 (Permalink)

Cleaning Tips to Keeping Mud Out of Your House During the Rainy Weather SERVPRO of Bear / New Castle has the expertise to provide a deeper clean than your basic house cleaning service.

Designate just one or two entrances for muddy feet and paws.

The first step in keeping mud out of your house during wet weather is to limit the number of places where it can be tracked inside.

Use your mud room, or create one.

The whole purpose of this room is to provide a space between the oh-so-dirty outside world and the indoor living spaces in your home.  If you do not currently have one, it is time to make one. Any spot without carpet at an exterior entrance will do, but it is usually most convenient if it is located in a garage or laundry room

Use a mat-and-rug system at every entrance.

Every entrance needs a mat on the outside and a rug on the inside. The outside mat should be a bristly or rubber mat that will trap or scrape off mud. Just inside each of your doors, you should have a washable rug.

Teach your dogs and children to stay on the rugs.

Once you have your mat-and-rug system in place, teach your children and dogs to stop on the rug and stay there until you have had time to remove muddy shoes or wipe muddy paws.

Keep muddy shoes off of your floors.

A boot tray is a simple, inexpensive solution for muddy boots and shoes and can be placed on a porch or in your mud room by the door.

Keep towels by the door.

Keep a basket of clean towels in your mud room or by your designated entrance. This will ensure that a towel is always handy when you need to dry off a wet child or wipe muddy paws.
