Many homeowners are hesitant to entertain for fear of the stains which can come as a result. This article is here to help quell those fears.

Even as the temperatures dip during this time of year, it’s important to stay social. However, with the rain and often snow causing the outdoors to become slushy and muddy, the challenge (and fear) faced by the majority of homeowners is entertaining guests at their home without incurring a range of carpet stains.

Prepare Your Home for a Party

In addition to providing high-quality carpet cleaning services, Charlotte Cleanpro also knows a thing or two about preventing stains from occuring in the first place and has prepared the following post on the topic.

Anticipate Stains

No matter what the stain is, if you can act quickly enough, the chances or a spill becoming a heavy stain are greatly reduced. The challenge is getting to these spills and stains before this can occur. Place some clean clothes and bottles with clean water around your home, such as under tables, behind your TV, and even on a side table, which you and your guests can quickly access if (when) the time comes.

Start with Preparation

Even if you don’t like visiting houses where the owner uses plastic carpet runners throughout, these items can be a great way to prevent stains from occurring in your home. Of course, you don’t have to install these throughout your entire home. You can simply just focus on the areas where your house will see the most foot traffic or even where in spaces where you expect people to gather to chat, eat, drink, and potentially spill! If your carpets are looking a bit tired or old, speak with Charlotte Cleanpro at (980) 349-6335 and schedule a professional carpet cleaning appointment before your party, to welcome guests into your clean and fresh home. Using their proprietary ION exchange cleaning, Charlotte Cleanpro can have your carpets looking their best without soaking them in water and fluid, which means that you can book a morning appointment and they will be dry and ready for your guests to walk in time for an evening party!

Don’t Let Shoes Inside

While it may seem like a dramatic way to prevent dirt and mud from entering your home, not allowing your guests to wear their shoes inside is one of the most effective. If employing this tip, keep the following in mind:
  • Be sure to let your guests know well in advance so they can dress accordingly.
  • Make sure you have a safe and dry place for guests to leave their shoes, either outside at your door on inside our entrance space.
  • If you feel like going the extra mile, you can provide cheap slippers for guests to use while they are at your home.

Move Your Entertaining

Of course, the best way to prevent stains on your carpet is to prevent people from walking on them. Even if it’s cold, if you have an outdoor entertaining space, consider outdoor heaters and move your party outdoors. If you only have a backyard, consider hiring a partially-enclosed gazebo along with some appropriate outdoor heaters and move everybody on to your lush green grass to enjoy their night. Whatever your options, consider utilizing your outdoor space and how you can transform it into a cozy outdoor entertaining area.

Enter Through the Back

Of course, if you do entertain outside, don’t be afraid to have your guests enter through the side or back gate and remove the need for them to enter through your front door and walk a range of stains through your home on their way to the back, before they’ve even had a chance to enjoy a drink or even spill it! Again, if you take this option, be sure to let your guests aware that they will need to do this, and even place a small sign with directions or instructions on your front door as a reminder.

The Best Carpet Cleaning in Charlotte

If you tried your best but still ended up with a stain you just can’t remove, or it’s simply been a while since your last professional carpet cleaning service, Charlotte Cleanpro can help. Instead of damaging your carpet with traditional steam cleaning, call (980) 349-6335 to find out how their ION Exchange cleaning system can not only remove stains from your carpets and bring them back to life, but do it without soaking your carpets in water, leaving them ready to walk on in a matter of hours, not days!
