Spring Showers and Protecting Floors
Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Not all floors are created equal. Some do better at insulating a home than others. Some floors can endure the ups and downs of life better than others. Some floors are better at resisting water than others. With spring on its way, April showers can bring more than excess water to a home. To prepare home entryways and floors for the constantly changing spring weather, it’s time to get prepared.

Floor mats

Floor mats, doormats, welcome mats — whatever you call them — aren’t just good to gather slush during winter. These floor protectors can actually be used all year-round. To prevent dirt, debris, and other gunk from getting inside and onto your floors, place a mat at both the inside and outside of the doorway. Have guests wipe their feet and take off dirty shoes when they first come in the door. Additionally, mats do need to be replaced from time to time. Check for salt stains, tears, or other imperfections to see if it’s time to replace mats.

Coat rack

Although coats will start to be packed away because of spring's warmer weather, coat racks can control clutter, and yes, also protect floors. Place a coat rack at the door to collect wet, muddy, or even snow-covered clothing. Keeping all of these items in one place will prevent the outdoor elements from following you inside and gathering on floors. Because spring weather is unpredictable, look for a coat rack that’s multi-functional; a coat rack with an umbrella stand at the bottom won’t let any dripping water into your home or onto your floors.

Kick off the shoes — Yes, every pair

Similar to having a spot to place coats and umbrellas, in order to protect floors from spring elements, take off shoes at the door. Yes, this even means the sandals you slipped on to grab the mail. Muddy, dirty shoes not only make a home messy, but can also scratch floors or leave wet spots, resulting in damage. In addition to a welcome mat to wipe off shoes, look for a rubber mat or boot tray to place shoes. Water, mud, and other elements will stay in one place, thus protecting your floors from spring.

Every home is different. And so are the ways to protect floors from the erratic spring weather. Know of any additional ways to keep your home looking timeless and protect floors from spring elements? Let us know in the comments.
