Remember to keep your floors clean. Shaw Floors states that, “Placing walk-off mats outside all entrances will help absorb soil and moisture and trap excessive dirt, sand, girt, oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer might otherwise be tracked into the home.” Be sure to vacuum your carpets regularly and to address stains as soon as they appear. Did you know that after 30 days a carpet stain can become permanent? This is because they have boned to the very fibers of the carpet.
