How to Protect Your Carpet from Ice Melt

As per usual in Colorado, winter has come in while fall is supposed to be here. If you were in one of the areas that got 14 inches of snow, then you’re feeling the effects. Snow means that there is going to be ice melt out to ensure your safety as you go about your day. This ice melt inevitably will get tracked into your home and can damage your carpet. This can be greatly distressing. Even if ice melt doesn’t get dragged into your home, the amount of snow that tends to come in can do just as much damage. How can you avoid this type of damage? As your professionals inCarpet Repair, Nip Tuck Carpet Repair wants to help you make sure that your carpet is healthy, so here are some of the best solutions:

Ice Melt

When it comes to ice melt there are several different solutions to make sure that these chemicals don’t get on your carpet. Typically, you can tell that this chemical has gotten on your carpet by the white markings that show up. There are certain cleaners that can be used to target the ice melt specifically in order to ensure it doesn’t permanently damage your carpet. However, you must be quick about making sure to clean these areas.


Snow can be dragged into the home very easily. You might not think that it can do much damage to your carpet but unfortunately it can. Too much moisture can cause mold to grow underneath. It can become a toxic hazard in your home without ever realizing it. This means that there needs to be some preventative measures taken.

The best preventative measures that you can take when it comes to ice melt and snow is simple, leave your shoes at the door. Get a rubber mat that can hold a reasonable number of shoes and make it a house rule that they must come off first before you can go any further. This is the best way to make sure that mold or stains won’t show up.
