If you really want to keep your house clean, you can have your guests leave shoes at your door when arriving, and you can help with good floor mats.

Place one at the entrance to the living room and one in front of the kitchen door, so that you don’t carry around any bits of food that have fallen off while cooking.

Shoe tray

Place a shoe tray in the hallway, right next to the door. When you come back from days spent in the snow, take off your shoes and put them on them.

This way you will avoid carrying dirt around the house. During the holiday season, get at least one more for guests.

This solution gives its best with a floor protection mat placed at the entrance.

Basket of slippers

Once their shoes have been removed, guests certainly cannot walk around barefoot. That’s why you need a basket or bag full of fabric slippers.

Usually, you find them on the stalls of the local markets, sold for a few euros.

They are a slightly nicer and more comfortable solution than the usual skates.

How to protect the parquet with the floor protection mat

Holidays are a difficult time for floors, especially with winter weather. Often and willingly you arrive at the front door with shoes encrusted with frozen mud and snow.

There are relatives and friends walking around the rooms, not all with clean shoes.

Keep the fireplace or stove on, with the risk of the heat affecting the surrounding surfaces. In all this, how to protect a parquet or an equally delicate floor?

A floor protector helps you on these occasions. It serves to protect the parquet from animals, children, relatives and other “disasters”.

This way you can enjoy the holidays in complete tranquility, without the fear of them leaving their mark on the floors.
