8 Cleaning Tips for High-Traffic Areas in Your Home

Where to Begin

People who have carpets know all too well how hard it can be to hide traffic patterns and discoloration in high-traffic areas. At Zerorez® Tampa Bay, we are dedicated to helping you maintain a clean and healthy living space in between cleanings. High-traffic areas in your home, like entryways, hallways, and living rooms, often bear the brunt of dirt, grime, and wear and tear. When you keep these areas clean, you not only keep your home looking great, but you also ensure that your home is hygienic and healthy! As experts, we are here to share some of our best tips for tackling high-traffic areas like a pro!

1. Regular Vacuuming:

Invest in a high-quality vacuum cleaner equipped with HEPA filters. Regular vacuuming removes dirt, dust, and allergens from your carpets and rugs, preventing them from settling deep within the fibers. Make sure to vacuum at least once a week, or more frequently in heavily trafficked areas.

2. Choose the Right Vacuum Attachments:

Utilize different vacuum attachments to clean various surfaces. Use a crevice tool for corners, a brush attachment for upholstery, and a beater bar for carpets. This ensures a comprehensive cleaning of all surfaces in high-traffic areas.

3. Use the Power of Baking Soda:

Foot traffic can lead to discoloration and odor. When our carpets start to show signs of wear, using baking soda can go a long way. Mixing baking soda with water and white vinegar and spraying it over your carpet makes for a great solution to reveal a brighter carpet and a better smell in your home.

4. Implement a No-Shoes Policy:

Enforcing a no-shoes rule can make a massive difference in the wear on your carpet. Shoes track in dirt and can push it deeper into your carpet with every step. When you leave shoes at the door, you avoid soiling and damaging your carpets.

5. Regularly Rotate Furniture:

Frequent movement of furniture can prevent excessive wear and tear in specific spots. Rotate furniture and area rugs periodically to distribute the weight and reduce the impact on high-traffic areas.

6. Professional Cleaning Services:

While these tips can help you maintain clean high-traffic areas, nothing beats the expertise of professionals. Zerorez® offers cutting-edge cleaning services using Empowered Water™ technology, which leaves no residue and keeps your carpets cleaner longer. Our experienced technicians can revitalize your home, leaving it looking and smelling fresh.

Taking care of high-traffic areas in your home is essential for a clean and healthy living environment. Regular vacuuming, spot cleaning, and adopting preventative measures can go a long way.
