Keep carpet and furniture protected during holidays.

Keep carpet and furniture protected during holidays.

The holidays are approaching quickly, and that means time for holiday parties and family gatherings! Decorating your home for this time of year to share with family and friends always holds special moments. But with all that traffic coming in and out of your home, some not so jolly accidents can happen. A spilled glass of wine on a newly steamed carpet, your cousin's heels scratching the flooring, water rings left on wood furniture, the list can go on and on! Here you'll see five ways to protect your carpet and furniture during the holidays. 

1. Starting off with a clean floor is a good idea. Spend the time to get your floors deep cleaned before your visitors start coming and going. This will give the home a fresh, clean appearance and odor and will subconsciously keep guests from intentionally leaving any mess.

2. Use furniture mover pads. Those small foam and plastic discs easily slide under legs of furniture, making for easy transportation if they need to be moved to another room. Along with this, it also keeps the floor from becoming scratched and scuffed; same goes for the furniture legs. It also works for not leaving unsightly marks on a carpeted floor.

3. Keep a thick, rough material doormat right outside your front door. This will ensure that when your guests go to wipe their feet, it will get the excess of dirt off and not on your floors. Keeping other smaller mats throughout the house can keep floors cleaner longer as well. You can also take this a step further and enforce a "no shoe" rule, keeping a small shoe caddy near the front entrance.

4. Pull out the plastic! You may not want to go as far as being that relative/friend with the room full of plastic covered furniture no one is allowed to go in, but it couldn't hurt to use plastic coverings over certain items you just can't get messy.

5. Extra surfaces mean less clutter, which means less chance of accidental spills. Bring in a few extra flat surfaced items, such as fold up tables, during holiday parties. This ensures there will be plenty of room and won't make for a crowded dinnertime.

Danielle and Kelly were so great! They had my dryer vent with over 12 years of garbage cleaned out in under an hour. What a fire hazard that could’ve been. My dryer was no longer drying my laundry because the vent was completely blocked. Don’t be like me, Clean out your vents every year people!!

One of the best duct cleaning companies I've ever worked with. As a mold remediation professional I've called on them to help my personal clients many times. They are always on time, fairly priced and very professional. Their reliability and consistent results, is unlike any other I've worked with. Highly recommended. Thank you Gator Clean!

Does your home have a particular funky smell that you can't seem to get rid of? Maybe you just fried up some fresh fish or have a cat or two for pets, and their litterbox stinks up the whole house? Or perhaps it could be something else entirely that you can't seem to pinpoint and shove outside. Here you might learn why your house smells, and how you can get rid of that lingering scent and breathe deep in your own home again.

As we settle down into a life turned upside down from the coronavirus, we are continually reminded to wash our hands and disinfect surfaces that could be contaminated. At the beginning of the crisis, stores quickly sold out of hand sanitizer and essential cleaning products. With businesses soon opening back up, we are left wondering how to keep ourselves and our homes clean and safe.
