The beginning of the holiday season brings fun times with family and friends, holiday décor throughout your home and holiday parties being thrown every weekend. With all of the festivities occurring this holiday season, one area of your home that may not feel the holiday love is your floor. Carpets, rugs, tile and other types of flooring often times fall victim to the heavy foot traffic, food and drink spills that the holiday season brings with it. Keeping your floors clean throughout the holiday can seem like an overwhelming task when you consider just how many friends and family will be coming into your home to celebrate.
Holiday Food & Drink Stain Removal
There are a few tips to consider that will assist you in keeping your floor looking great for your holiday parties, clean after they are over and able to last to next year’s festivities. Dropped food, spilled Wassail, and increased foot traffic from holiday visitors can leave your floors in less than perfect condition. However, whether it is a dark hot cocoa, a bright orange sweet potato casserole or a piece of festive pie that falls onto your floor, there is a way to remedy even the toughest of stains that the holidays bring.
Clean Carpet & Tile Spills Immediately
The best way to defend your floors from getting permanently stained is to attend to a spill immediately after it has happened. If a spill is allowed to sit for a long period of time before it is properly cleaned, chances are you will be left with an unsightly stain on your floor. The longer a spill is allowed to sit on the surface of your floor, the longer it has to sink deeply into the fibers of your carpet or rug. Tile is an extremely porous material and will also soak up a spill that can be difficult to remove if not cleaned quickly and properly.
Carpet Stain Removal
If a spill does occur, blot it first with a clean dry towel, and then gently rub the spill with a cold clean cloth. Many home owners make the mistake of immediately spraying the spill with some type of cleanser before doing anything else. This most likely will result in a mark left on your floor. Often times an inappropriate cleanser is used that can do much more harm than good.
