When the winter season approaches, ice and snow are the first things on our minds. How much are we going to get this year? In this region, there is always a chance for a snowstorm in the winter months. It is bad enough that the snow creates hazards outside, but nobody wants a snow trail inside of their home. One of the worst feelings is taking off your shoes and stepping into a pile of melting, dirty snow. So why not be prepared this winter season?  Here are three ways you can protect your home from snow and salt.


This is an easy and cheap solution to trailing snow inside of your home. If most of the snow is already off of your shoe before you enter your home, there is a lot less stress about leaving trails behind inside. Purchasing a doormat for both the inside and outside of your home will save you a lot of trouble. You can easily discard of most of the snow on your shoe by simply wiping your feet onto the mat before you enter the home and once you have entered.

Boot Trays

A boot tray provides a place for you and your guests to place their shoes. If you have also purchased a doormat, it will be much easier to clean the boot tray because there’s less snow and dirt inside of it. It’s simple, your guests wipe their feet on your doormats and then once they’ve entered your home, they put their shoes inside of the boot tray. This eliminates so much mess that would have been made if you had neither of the two. You can also get creative with boot trays and make it a DIY project, saving you a few dollars, making for a fun project and turning your boot tray into a nice decoration. In addition, you could purchase a small laundry basket so that you and your family can also discard of potentially wet, dirty socks. These simple solutions will literally knock your socks off!

Keep Entry Area Clean

The dirt from slush and salt residue can build up over time if you don’t keep the doorway area clean. This will make all the other solutions pretty much useless because even when guests wipe their shoes and take them off, there will residue already on the floor that can trail with them. Make sure that during the winter months, you are cleaning your entryway on a regular basis because no method can completely prevent all residue from entering your home.
