It is no secret that the weather is changing. It seems like an age ago we were all basking in the warm summer sun, but now we are wearing our winter boots and trying to keep out the cold. With the colder (and wetter) weather comes dirty and muddy feet. One of the greatest enemies of any office space.
Dirty and muddy feet will come into your office, perhaps even walking through the entire space, which means that they are going to leave stains and marks all over the floor. Aside from ordering everyone to hover above the floor when they enter, it can seem like there isn’t much that you can do about this, however, there is.
Why not take a look at some of our top tips for keeping dirt and mud out of your office this winter?
Have a mat at the door
One of the simplest ways that you can limit the amount of dirt and mud that makes its way into your office is to make sure that you have a mat at any entrances from outside. That way, as people walk across them, the dirt is going to transfer onto the mat, stopping it coming into the rest of your office as well as making things a whole lot easier to clean.
Clean the outside paths
Another way to try and limit the amount of dirt that can make its way into your office is to make sure that the outside paths are as clean as possible. After all, if the paths that people will use are clean, then you are going to find that their shoes are much cleaner and that you don’t have to worry about too much mud and dirt making its way into and onto the carpet.
Consider covering wooden floors
If you have wooden or lino floors and the weather starts to turn wet and muddy, then you may want to consider covering over these floors. Not only can they quickly become dirty, but wooden and lino flooring can also become incredibly slippy when they are wet. Which increases the risk of people falling over and injuring themselves. Not something that you are going to want to happen.
Keep hoovering on a regular basis
Sometimes, despite your best efforts you are going to find that dirt makes its way into your office space. In order to stop it building up or causing a stain or any larger issue, you are going to want to ensure that you hoover up the mess on a regular basis. It is best to leave any mud to try out, as this will make it much easier to clean up and should stop it from smearing around the carpet even more.
Minimising the amount of mud and dirt that makes its way into the office isn’t always easy, but there are things that you can do to try and keep it to a low level, hopefully making sure that your office space stays looking clean and tidy, the whole winter through.
