A Mudroom is a dirt catching zone that stands between your home and the great outdoors. If you stop the dirt there, you will save yourself lot's of mopping and vacuuming. Depending on the traffic pattern pattern in your home, your Mudroom , as we know at Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il 60201 might be an enclosed porch, the entrance from the garage, or even the front entryway.
A great deal of dirt that comes into the house comes in on shoes. So, large, strong mats for wiping feet are your home's first and best defense against dirt. Put one just outside the mudroom door and another just inside. Natural fiber mats work well but if your mats are directly exposed to the weather, synthetic ones will hold up better. Leave a stiff-bristled scrub brush outside your mudroom door to use on shoes and boots that are so messy that mats won't suffice. It works well for anything muddy, such as sporting equipment and yard tools.
Mudrooms should have an easy cleaning floor, such as ceramic tile. Make sure you have a floor that stands up to moisture well. Boot trays are good to have by the door for drippy shoes and boots. Or stack a set of plastic buckets by the door, one for each child so a child can drop their wet shoes or boots into the bucket to dry.
Keep some disposable wipes by the door to mop up messy hands, shoes and doggy paws.Or a few old towels work wonders also. Some old newspapers will come in handy for shoes that are soaked through, ball up sheets of newspaper and put them inside the shoes. Change them every 20 minutes until they've sucked up all the moisture.
Keep your Mudroom tidy and organized by having plenty of coat hooks, a closet, storage bins. Supply a lidded bench for sitting on while you take off shoes and then you can store items in the bottom. Have a spot for posting messages for family members. Set up an "in box for mail, and an out box for stuff that has to be mailed or library books to be returned. Key hooks help you keep track of keys for your cars, shed, house.
