What To Do When Snow Tracks In Dirt

During the winter, snow is simply something that you have to deal with. Sure, it is a lot of fun when you are out playing in it, but when you come back inside and have snow on your boots, it is always a bigger mess than anyone plans.


Let the experts at CCS Cleaning and Restoration handle the constant stains that come with tracking in dirty snow!

Why Tracking In Snow Leaves Floors Dirty

When you track snow onto your tile and carpet, you’re bringing in not only snow, which will quickly melt, but also any dirt or mud that has gotten stuck to the snow. Once everything melts, it can eventually look like a disaster struck.


And if this continues all winter long, you will quickly notice a difference in the color and softness of your carpet. Not only will they be dirty, but you likely will not even be able to get them clean with your standard cleaning habits, such as vacuuming and spot cleaning.

Remove Any Loose Dirt Immediately

Removing loose soil or dirt as soon as possible is highly recommended. This could be done with a spatula or butter knife and gently lifting any wet particulates and scooping them off the carpet.


Try to pull the contaminants upward instead of making a scraping motion to avoid forcing the particulates deeper into the carpet and creating a larger stain.


If you are tempted to use a vacuum or scrub the area, avoid this until the mud has completely dried to remove the risk of pushing the dirt further into the material.


Keep People Out Of The Space

Additionally, because mud can be easily overlooked by those exiting and entering the space, you want to do your best to keep pets and kids away from the area.


Stepping on the soiled areas can further spread the dirt, so until it's dried or professionally cleaned, block off the site to keep people out of the space.


Get Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned

When the dirt and water is deep into your carpet, the only way you can really clean it is with a professional cleaning. It’s so hard to get deep to properly clean the mess that has been tracked in over time and even if you could, it will take a lot of effort and time for you to do so.


That is exactly why the best solution is to leave it to the professionals! At CCS Cleaning and Restoration, we will take a closer look at the mess on your carpeted floors and determine the best cleaning plan, depending on the severity of the stains.
