3 Simple Tips to Maintain Your Floors During Winter

November 5, 2022

Winter is back. And living in Alberta, you know how this season unfolds: Snow, ice, mud, slush, etc. These nuisances, coupled with steep temperature drops and more moisture, can spell trouble for your unprotected floors. Regardless of your flooring application, winter is the most challenging season for your home surfacing.

For this reason, floor maintenance preparation is essential this time of year. And luckily, Floor Trendz is a modern Calgary flooring store that is here to help! So what can you do to safeguard your floor this winter season? Here are 3 simple tips.

1. Plan Ahead

A little forethought goes a long way. As one of the most experienced flooring stores in Calgary, we can confidently tell you floor damage prevention comes from planning ahead. The winter season brings muck, sludge, crud and more into your home. And being prepared is the first step to counter this. You can stop this filth in your houseguests’ tracks by setting mats at entrances, ensuring visitors take off their footwear, or even placing a towel close at hand to stop puddles from forming.

2. Stop Moisture

Moisture is the arch-nemesis of your flooring surface. It will seep into your floors, causing them to peel, warp, and rot away if left unattended to. To prevent this, purchase some floor mats. You could also just use a towel to dry up additional moisture tracked in from the outside before it damages your floors.

3. Clean Regularly

Winter is a challenging season. Not only is it darker and colder, but it’s also dirtier. All the snow and slush get dragged in from outside, resulting in a messy home. To maintain your floor’s aesthetic appearance, you’ll need to clean it more frequently. Mopping, sweeping, scrubbing, etc., will help keep your floor in pristine condition.

Final Thoughts

Your floors are important. Don’t you deserve high-quality surfaces in your home that both look great and properly set off your decor? Of course, you do!
