November 17, 2014

We all have entryways to enter and exit our homes right?. This is the area that leaves the first impression on our guests so we all want them to look and smell wonderful. Getting this done on a consistent basis is the challenge. Want some tips on how you might get this accomplished then please read on. 


The entryway of your home is likely going to receive the most traffic since it’s where every person that enters and exits your home must pass. This often means that carpet cleaning needs to be done routinely in order for it to smell fresh and be free of stains. While professional  carpet cleaning is definitely helpful, there are several things that you can do on your own to make the entryway the inviting place it’s meant to be and smelling fresh like you expect it to be:

#1: Try Plug-In Air Fresheners

An easy way to add a pleasant scent to your entryway is through using plug-in air fresheners. The options for scents is practically endless, allowing you to pick out a scent that you love. The ability to change out scents as the season changes can also be enticing since it can set the mood regardless of the current month.

#2: Sprinkle Baking Soda Before Vacuuming

An effective way to reduce unpleasant scents on your carpeting is through baking soda. With this cheap ingredient, you can trap bad smells and vacuum them up thoroughly. The job is as simple as sprinkling some baking soda over the carpet, allowing it to sit for several minutes, then vacuuming the remaining debris.

#3: Insist on Removing Shoes When Entering

Professional carpet cleaning is often needed due to marks being made on the carpet, and debris being left on your carpet, from people wearing their shoes indoors. An easy way to cut down on how dirty your entryway, and other parts of your home, becomes is by setting up a shoe rack or bench for people to remove their shoes when they enter.

Even with diligent care for your entryway carpet, you’ll need to rely on professional cleaning periodically so when you are ready contact ServiceMaster Quality Services to get the tender loving care your carpets deserve and Above and Beyond treatment you deserve.
