Mother’s Day Flooring: Keeping Dirt Out Of The House

Are you searching for that perfect Mother’s Day gift for mom? If yes, look no further than giving mom a new flooring that will help her keep her floors clean and her home stylish.

We all know that going in and out of the home, results in dirty flooring.

Mom should never have to spend her day off, cleaning the house, especially dirty floors, Mother’s Day or any other day of the week.

Jim Boyd’s Flooring America is here to help you stop the dirt tracks in mom’s home with quality home flooring, carpeting, and area rugs.

To stop dirt tracks at home entrance ways, purchase area rugs and mats.

The majority of dirt enters the home from the soles of shoes. Dirt can also come in the home from air entering through home windows.

With attractive doormats at the front door and backdoor of your home, you can reduce the bulk of the dirt that comes into your home. Sometimes dirt tracks are not visible to the naked eye as mud or debris. Make sure everyone that enters the home knows to sweep the sole of the shoes when entering your home. Doormats are easy to clean and add extra warmth to a home. Who doesn’t want the home to be seen as a welcoming home?

You can gain the best results from your doormat if the landing strip is longer than the average individual’s walking stride.

What we mean by exceeding the average walking stride is to walk an area with both feet before coming fully into the home. The doormat width should be only as wide as the door itself.

What is the best doormat for the home?

One that is acrylic because it is easy to clean with a vacuum or you can simply shake it out to remove dirt.

The doormat should also be a dark color to keep the doormat looking clean on days you forget or don’t have the time to clean it.

Don’t forget to purchase a wire rack you can keep under the doormat for family and visitors who need to scrape mud from the soles of their shoes. If any type of floor mat gets too dirty for comfort, hose it down and scrub with soap and warm water.

Next, purchase floor mats to place in high traffic areas of your home such as the bathroom and kitchen.

You will know when a floor mat needs replacing when the threadbare is too worn to effectively capture dirt.

As for hard surface flooring, go for laminate and solid hardwood floors.

With laminate flooring, you will only need to vacuum when it becomes dirty. For hardwood flooring, you will occasionally need to do re-waxing and refinishing.

For bathrooms, Jim Boyd’s Flooring America highly recommends ceramic flooring.

It will keep the bathroom hygienically safe and improve bathroom functionality.

Prevent mom from doing the never-ending dust chore every week. Get her some great home flooring from Jim Boyd’s Flooring America.

Cleaning the home should never be an all day project. With quality flooring and carpets, cleaning the home can take less than 20 minutes per day.

Dust. Sweep. Vacuum. That’s all you have to do to keep your house clean and feeling great when you walk in and out.

Immediately wipe up spills to prevent stains and other floor damages.

Don’t use strong chemicals on your floors or carpet.

We recommend dusting, vacuuming and sweeping at least once a week. A damp mop can be for cleaning every few weeks.
