Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Carpet Clean During Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, here’s how to protect your carpet.

Thanksgiving is a time to bond with loved ones as you savor a tasty meal. Friends and relations from all over the country can convene in one place for a day and make the most of it. However, when you have a lot of people in your home, it’s easy for your carpeting to suffer. How do you keep your carpet clean with so many people in the area?

Ask Guests to Bring Slippers to Thanksgiving Dinner

This may seem like a strange request, but you keep your carpeting safe from dirt in the long run. Ask anyone coming to your Thanksgiving dinner to bring slippers for the occasion. These slippers don’t have to be brand new. If someone has an old but clean pair in their closet, they can bring these slippers along. Tell everyone to keep the slippers on when they’re in the house. If they want to step outside, they may use their regular shoes. Purchase a few cheap ones at the store to keep as extras in case a guest forgets.

Monitor Where People Eat

If you want to keep your carpeting clean, consider watching where people eat. Some individuals may try to sneak off to eat in another room in order to get some privacy. While it’s fine to want to be away from the crowd, they shouldn’t bring a dripping turkey leg or bowl of cranberry sauce along. Encourage everyone to eat in one place.

Tell people who wander off that you’re trying to keep your carpet safe from stains. Younger guests may not understand, so try to be patient. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and let people know when you aren’t happy.

If Someone Drops Something, Act Quickly

No matter how careful you are with where people eat, it’s still possible for someone to drop something on your carpeting. If this happens, act as quickly as you can. Get out your cleaning supplies and blot the stain carefully. Don’t rub the stain into the carpet – this makes a bad situation worse. Use cleaning supplies appropriate for the situation.

Thanksgiving is a great time to eat good food and talk to the people most important to you. However, guests also bring the potential for chaos. If you want to keep your flooring safe, look at the information above and work out a plan that works best for you.
