Being able to protect carpet from snow during winter is not always easy. Particularly if it’s in the office entryways. In addition to that, water and salt can also get tracked through the office after a snow storm.
Here are four helpful ways to protect carpet from snow and minimize wear and tear on the flooring. These tips will also help you keep your carpet clean and fresh through the snow season.
Use Temporary Mats To Protect Your Carpet From Snow
If your office is in the mountains of California, the weather can be unpredictable. As such, it fluctuates by day, making planning around winter weather troublesome. However, using temporary mats during the worst winter months can be a time saver. Not to mention, a cost effective option to keeping your entryways clean and minimize wear on your office’s permanent flooring.
There are several benefits to using temporary mats. First, they can be easily wiped down and washed off. Second, they are designed to withstand the heavy traffic of wet and soiled boots. And third, temporary mats help avoid permanent damage to your carpet.
But choosing the right type of mats is important. For example, select a washable option and make sure to they extend a few feet into the building.
Protect Carpet From Snow By Starting From The Outside
The ideal way to keep your office carpets clean is to prevent the outside elements from getting inside. For instance, use outdoor carpeting and mats at entryways. Doing so will help trap dirt and moisture that would otherwise get tracked into the office by people entering the building.
Additionally, removing snow and ice from sidewalks and parking lots will also help protect your carpet from snow. This will also keep employees and visitors safe when walking through these areas.
Be Consistent With Spot Cleaning
You’ve made every effort to protect your carpet from snow, moisture and dirt. However, it’s impossible to prevent 100% of these elements from getting into your office’s carpet.
