Discover the Simple & Fast Way to Clean Your Doormat
Home stores are full of cheerful and cozy doormats. But once the doormat is brought home, its main goal is to keep dirt out of your home. To keep your doormat working as it should, you will need to keep it clean! Fortunately, it is very easy to clean your doormat. It only requires three items and 15 minutes of your time.
Why Clean Your Mat?
Your doormat contains all the shoes and legs that have already passed through your door. As a result, it harbors everything from allergens and road debris to pieces of rotten leaves and mulch. If you have pets, the doormat can even harbor fleas or ticks. Regular cleaning can ensure that you keep dirt and debris to a minimum.
When choosing a doormat, select one that is reasonably easy to clean and effectively removes shoe and foot residue. Make sure it is long enough to walk in both shoes before entering your home.
What You'll Need
These three mat cleaning supplies will help you clean: a vacuum cleaner, a garden hose, and mild soap. Some people also use baking soda, a broom or brush, and a clothesline, depending on the cleaning method. Check the manufacturer's instructions before using anything other than a vacuum to clean your carpet.
Maintain a Cleaning Schedule
Although it is not necessary to thoroughly clean or change the mat every week, it is a good idea to follow this program to avoid tracking down unwanted dirt or allergens.
Shake the doormat when sweeping the balcony or after mowing. A good shake will remove a lot of dust and dirt that could otherwise enter your home. You can also help dislodge dirt from the carpet by tapping the carpet against an external surface, such as the sidewalk. After shaking, you can quickly vacuum the mat to make sure all dirt has been removed, whether you use a small or traditional vacuum cleaner. Doing this weekly will help keep dirt and stains off the doormat.
Vacuum the doormat mat, if you haven't already, to loosen deeply embedded dirt that simple shaking doesn't always reveal. This is a good time to inspect the mat to make sure it is still in good condition. If your doormat has a strange smell, you can use baking soda to get rid of it. Put some baking soda on the mat and let it sit for ten minutes before using a brush to scrub the baking soda. You can let the mat sit for another five minutes before vacuuming.
Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions, but many outdoor doormats can be rinsed out with a garden hose. Some tougher stains may need a little mild soap. This is ideally done seasonally to keep your doormat in excellent shape for whatever weather the upcoming season brings based on your particular location. For example, in winter, you can use a sturdy rug outside that doesn't retain moisture and prevents mold, mud, and dirt. When the streets are salty, sweeping or vacuuming the salt from the doormat will often ensure that it doesn't enter your home and spoil the floor.
