We wait all year for this time of the year. This is when the weather takes a turn for the cooler, when hearts take a turn for the warmer, and the joy of the holiday season begins. This is also the time of year for those annual Christmas parties, where we invite friends (and often their friends) and family (and often some of their friends too) over for food, fun, and holiday get-togethers.
Yes, this is an exciting time of the year for people everywhere, but it is also a potentially brutal time for your home. Instead of having two or three of your immediate family walking across the floors, dragging the cold, mud, salt, and debris from the outside into the house, you could have – how many people in your house? Exactly.
Here are some tips to help prepare your home for the holidays and perhaps make it a more joyful time for your home too.
It may be worth investing in a few mats for the entryways to your home. Wherever guests, family, and friends may enter your home (the back door, front door, or garage), get a door mat to help reduce the amount of unwanted moisture and debris dragged into the home.
Many floors during the holiday season see a big spike in foot traffic – all kinds of foot traffic. In addition to the weather changes, there are the types of shoes that will be pounding your kitchen, living room, and hallway floors. Quality floor protectors won’t necessarily prevent that quarter-inch chip in the flooring, but it will offer a barrier to protect against water, snow, scuffs, and other concerns.
Don’t Overlook Coat Hangers
A simple aspect like having enough coat hangers will also help to eliminate snow, rain, and other outdoor debris from being tracked throughout the house. It will also provide an appreciated convenience for your guests because the small things really do count.
