ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning | Providing floor cleaning and carpet cleaning in Boyceville, WI and surrounding areas!

Here in Northwestern Wisconsin, besides saying good-bye to bone chilling temperatures and piles of snow that resemble an avalanche zone, what’s one of the best things about spring? If you’re a parent, it has to be sending the kids outside to play to burn off an entire winter’s worth of pent up energy! But it also brings it’s own special problem – mud, and lots of it. ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning provides floor cleaning and carpet cleaning in Boyceville, WI to keep mud invaders under control!

To a child, stomping through puddles and slip-sliding around in the mud can be as much fun as a trip to an amusement park. When it’s time to come in, a lot of that muddy merry-making may find its way into the house. One trip through the house from muddy feet and the joy of seeing the children playing outside quickly evaporates.

To keep you from becoming “The Grinch Who Ruined Springtime,” here are some tips for heading off a mud invasion while letting your kids be kids.

• Outdoor Mats
Think about outdoor mats as your first line of defense. There are many types of heavy-duty abrasive outdoor mats available. To go along with that mat, a second mat made of plastic artificial grass-like material can reach into shoe and boot tread that the abrasive mat may miss.

• Mud Scraper
When feet get super muddy you may have to employ a mud scraper before an abrasive mat can even begin to do it’s job. There are a number of varieties on the market. Some use a metal or plastic blade, and some use bristles that brush mud off the bottom and sides of shoes and boots.

• Indoor mats
Decorative throw rugs may look nice, but they’re a poor match when it comes to mud. For the times during the year when mud is a problem, look for “industrial strength” mats with a vinyl or rubber backing and a sturdy surface. An affordable option is sold by the foot and available at big box home improvement stores.

• Shoes off policy
That sounds pretty simple. But when you’re dealing with children, if it isn’t easy and convenient, sometimes it doesn’t happen. Make sure you keep one or two boot trays right inside the door next to your indoor mat. That way there is not only a place for shoes and boots, but seeing the boot tray is a reminder for children and adults to take off their shoes.

• “Your mess, your problem.”
You don’t like cleaning up muddy footprints, and neither do your children. If they track in mud, give them the tools to clean it up. You’ll be surprised how responsible they get after a time or two of cleaning stubborn mud from the floor.

Even the best plans and intentions can fail. After a few of those incidents, your carpet may pay the price and need a good, thorough deep carpet cleaning. That’s the time to call ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning. Why let a little mud wreck your spring when all you have to do is call us?
