Use a Shoe Rack

A sure fast path to end up getting dirty carpets is to allow your family to keep wearing their footwear inside and track the dirt in your home. Whenever your carpets are too dirty it can impact the cleanliness of your entire home and even your overall health and well-being. Carpets are naturally dirt magnets, and should be cleaned frequently, however, if you’re able to prevent the dirt from ever getting on the carpet then you’ll be a step ahead of the game, and your carpets will stay cleaner for longer. Shoe holders and organizers are great for lowering the amount of dirt that ends up on your carpet while keeping your entrance way looking clean and organized. They’re affordable and definitely worth the investment to help diminish after school dirt.

Set Out Door Mats and Rugs

An easy, yet often overlooked, tactic for preventing dirt in your house is to use mats and rugs in major entryways. In case you don’t have mats already, then now is a good time to begin using them. Your kids are already in a learning frame of mind, so teaching them this new rule - to wipe their feet after returning from school - will fit right in with their new routine. Making use of mats and rugs are welcoming and will go a long ways to help prevent dirt in your home.

Make a Chore Chart
