Winter weather can be especially tough on our office entryways, tracking snow, water, and salt through the office after a rain or snowstorm. Caring for your office carpets during the winter season is essential. Here are three helpful strategies to help you minimize wear and tear on your carpet and keep them clean and fresh through the upcoming snow season.

Start from the Outside

The best way to keep your office carpets clean and to look their best is to prevent the outside elements from making their way inside. Outdoor carpeting and mats at entryways help to trap dust, dirt, and moisture that would otherwise make their way through the office via employees’ and guests’ shoes and boots.

Proper planning for snow and ice removal of office parking lots and sidewalks is another effective preventative strategy that will reduce unwanted elements making their way into your building.

Consider Temporary Mats

The unpredictable weather on the east coast can fluctuate by the day, making planning challenging around winter weather. Using temporary mats during the worst winter months can be a time saver and cost-effective option to keep your entryways clean and minimize wear and tear on your office’s permanent flooring.

Temporary mats can be easily wiped down and washed off and withstand the heavy traffic of wet and soiled boots that can cause permanent damage to your carpet.

When selecting temporary mats, select a washable option and be sure to have them extend a couple of feet into the building.

Stay on Top of Spot Cleaning

Despite all our efforts, it’s impossible to prevent 100% of all moisture, dirt, and salt from making its way onto your office’s carpet and flooring.

A simple and effective way to prevent permanent damage or discoloration of your office carpets is to perform routine vacuuming and spot treat soiled areas quickly so you can remove dirt and debris before they become a ground-in stain.
