Whether it's muddy shoes or spilled wine, there is always a risk that your carpets are going to become damaged when you host a party. For some homeowners, this is enough of a deterrent for them not to host parties at all.


How to Protect Your Carpet From Common Party Stains

Using this experience, below we have prepared some simple tips for you which can allow you to host a party and protect your carpet and upholstery from stains

It All Starts With the Front Door

Depending on the size of your gathering, you may feel comfortable asking your guests to remove their shoes. If this isn't an option, doormats are going to be your best bet. Start with a rough purpose designed outdoor mat where guests can give their shoes a good scrape and a stomp. This should prevent most of the dirt and mud from entering your home. Once guests enter your door, provide them with a secondary mat, however, make sure this one is softer than the first. This softer mat provides a pleasant entrance into your home while also catching and leftover debris.

Hire Some Rugs

With your guests now inside your home, your carpet's best defense is coverage. Speak with local furniture hire or party supply stores and consider hiring large rugs which you can place in common areas where you expect your guests to congregate. Furniture hire stores are likely to have a selection of both stylish and durable rugs for you to use.

Minimize Trips and Spills

One of the best aspects of a party is that people can relax and become jovial. It's all part of the atmosphere. However, while they may mean well, it can be easy for these guests to trip or stumble over objects low to the ground, such as small coffee tables or ornaments. If you have items such as these around your home, especially around areas where you expect guests to gather, it's a good idea to remove them completely. This is not just a great way to prevent guests from stumbling and spilling their wine glasses, but it prevents people from placing their food and drink on spaces where they can be easily knocked over by people walking past.

Prevent Drips

This list is very much in order of the likelihood of stains. Mud and dirt as guests enter, wine stains as guests become relaxed, and now food and sauce drips caused as your guests begin to eat. The best way to prevent sauce stains on your carpet is not to serve sauce at all. Instead, opt for small bite sized foods which don't require any dipping sauces at all.

Serve Your Food Wisely

How you serve your food can significantly impact the likelihood of carpet stains. Usually, guests will take a plate and pile it high with food before walking around your home eating and socializing. This is the easiest way for food spills to occur. Instead, simply remove the plates and serve food only in the kitchen. This encourages your guests to stay and eat in a space that is easily cleaned up in the event of a spill.

Accidents Will Happen

Of course, despite your best efforts, there is still a chance that a spill or a drip is going to occur. In preparation, place small bottles of cleaning liquid and paper towels around your home, such as behind your television or on top of bookshelves. How quickly you can attend to the spill can decide how permanent the stain is going to be, so having these on hand is a good idea.
