Why Having Doormats Is Important

Debris and moisture tracked from the outdoors are the number one enemies of flooring and carpets. The first line of defense against those enemies is the doormat, which is often underestimated, but in fact having a doormat means less sweeping, vacuuming and mopping.

It may sound unrealistic but cleaning, vacuuming and stain removing is not the only way to preserve your living room carpet. Having doormats is as equally important as the cleaning, vacuuming and stain removing. How to choose the perfect doormat for your home and how to install it for maximum efficiency are aspects covered below, so read on if you are interested.

Put mats on all the outside entrances, especially those with heavy traffic. Some properties have more than one entrance. Therefore putting a doormat just on the front door is not enough. You will have to cover all entrances. Having mats both on the outside and the inside, will give you extra protection. Use longer doormats, so that you and your guests step at least twice on each mat. For the exterior doormat choose one that has brush-like fiber loops for easier cleaning reasons. If needed mount a boot scraper. For the indoor mat, make sure that its fibers absorb moisture.

When choosing the doormats you should consider where the mats will be installed. Consider the weather conditions including extreme high or low temperature, rain, snow, etc. If the mat will be on the open choose one which will drain out water quickly. Doormats also need periodical cleaning because they accumulate a lot of dirt and debris, and if they are not cleaned from time to time, they will stop functioning effectively. Every two weeks beat off and vacuum the mats occasionally wash them too. The indoor mats can be washed in the laundry.
