If you’re like many homeowners, you take great pride in your house and its appearance. Keeping your home clean can be a chore, however, whether you have carpet, tile, or hardwood flooring. Though it may seem nearly impossible to keep dirt outside where it belongs, there are a few steps you can take to prevent debris from getting into your house. Keep reading to learn how to prevent guests from tracking in outside dirt.
Take Off Shoes
Having guests over to your home should be a relaxing experience, not a time for you to worry about whether their shoes are dirty. Instead of concerning yourself about where your guests’ shoes have been, simply ask them to remove their footwear when they come in the door. You can make a small sign politely stating your no-shoes policy, and chances are, your guests will be more than happy to comply. Some homeowners like to provide slippers or scuffs for their guests to wear so that their feet don’t get cold, but that is completely up to you. Either way, your home will be cleaner when everyone removes their shoes at the door.
People, animals, and even the wind can bring unwanted dirt and debris into your home. Dirt and dust can accumulate on your floors, making carpet look dingy and scratching up your hardwood floors. Placing doormats at every entry point will help trap that dirt so it doesn’t make it any farther into your home. If some of your rooms have hardwood flooring, it’s a good idea to use mats at those entryways for extra protection. Your guests will wipe their feet on the mats to keep the dirt at bay.
In addition to placing doormats at entry points, you may also want to put runners in high-traffic areas. An Oriental runner in your foyer is both beautiful and functional, and it will cut down on the dirt that gets tracked into your house.

You might be surprised to learn that scrubbing and mopping your tile and grout are not actually effective cleaning methods. As you scrub, dirt and grime get pushed deeper into the grout line, which makes your tile and grout look worse.
Mildew is one of the most common forms of grime that attack your tile and grout, as it loves to grow in warm and damp conditions. The combination of moisture from wet mopping and dirt that is pushed into the grout makes for ideal conditions for mildew growth. Instead of trying to wipe away mildew yourself, trust the professionals to clean and seal your grout every year. In addition to making your tile look better, professional tile and grout cleaning keeps your home clean and sanitized by making it harder for mildew to grow.
Call (888) 330-8382 to speak to Hadeed In-Home & Office Cleaning Services about having your tile and grout professionally cleaned. We can clean, seal, and stain your grout to keep your D.C. home looking fresh and well-maintained.

Oriental rugs are more than just decoration—they are investments that can be passed down through generations and become part of the family. To ensure that your Oriental rugs can be enjoyed for years to come, they need to be properly taken care of.
Hand-washing is the best method of cleaning an Oriental rug, as it is the most thorough and least damaging to the rug’s delicate fibers. Even when you vacuum your rugs regularly, pounds of dirt can accumulate. Hadeed’s method of hand-washing removes this dirt, restoring the beautiful vibrancy and color to your Oriental rugs. Hand-washing not only makes your rugs look better, but will also extend their lifespans by removing dirt and grit that can wear down the fine fibers.
At Hadeed In-Home & Office Cleaning Services of D.C., we provide deep cleaning for Oriental rugs with our time-tested hand-washing process. Contact us at (888) 330-8382 to learn about our commitment to our customers. Remember, “If you stand on it, we stand behind it!”

Your Oriental rugs can collect pounds of dirt that vacuuming alone will not remove, and that dirt makes your rugs appear dull.
