Millions of Americans will travel in the next few weeks to visit family and friends for the holidays. Likewise, millions of Americans will also host visitors for the holidays. If you are a homeowner that is hosting family and friends this holiday season, you may be a little concerned about protecting your carpet from the increase in foot traffic.

Magnus Anderson specializes in high quality flooring options for our customers. We understand that after carefully searching for and choosing the right carpet for your home, you will want it to last as long as possible without damage to it. Accidents from visiting pets, a red wine spill, water from rain or snow tracked into the house, and delicious food dropping from the dining room table are all possibilities in the next few weeks, but the team at Magnus Anderson has some ideas on how you can prevent damage to your carpet flooring.

Start by having your guests take off their shoes when they enter your home. Furthermore, placemats inside the doorways of your house for wet shoes, umbrellas, and anything else that comes from the outside that is wet. This will save your carpet so much wear and tear, and it’s simple to do.

Also, if you are putting extra furniture, like a rollaway bed or additional tables and chairs out for guests, place protective material under the legs of the furniture to keep your carpet safe from the possible damage of shifting furniture or the weight of the furniture.

You probably will not feel the need to place a protective tablecloth under your main dining table for the adults to eat, but if you have young guests that are eating meals in a room with carpet flooring, then you may want to put a plastic tablecloth with a soak proof backing on it down on the floor so that spills will not leave their mark on your carpet.

For many, the holidays are a time to celebrate each other through food and fun. Our team at Magnus Anderson hopes you have a wonderful holiday season. If you are looking to put some high quality carpet flooring down in your home, give us a call at our Fayetteville, North Carolina location at (910) 483-0468.
