The holidays present a challenge to many of your home’s surfaces. Let’s take a look at some areas to monitor and some tips for keeping them looking their best:

Carpet

Oftentimes when we host a holiday get together we put our carpet’s durability to a test. Everyone knows when you move a couch or chair that’s been in the same place for a long time, the carpet underneath looks fresh, fluffy, and has better color than the surrounding carpet. This is because it hasn’t been stepped on. Over time, carpet develops what we call traffic lanes. These are the smushed looking areas where we frequently walk on the rug. You probably have noticed them in front of your couch or on the sides of your bed. But it isn’t actually stepping on the carpet that does the damage that causes traffic lanes – it’s the dirt on your feet.
