  • Festive Foot Traffic: Leaves, snow and ice, oh my! Help keep outside elements in check with holiday mats strategically placed at main doors for wiping and encourage guests to remove shoes. Consider slippers as an early holiday gift for family members so they'll want to take off their shoes upon entering the house.

  • Kick Jack Frost to the Curb: Even with slippers for the whole family, tracking snow into the house during the winter months is inevitable. The new Hoover® MaxExtract77 Multi-Surface Pro™ Carpet & Hard Floor Deep Cleaner can clean up slushy messes on a variety of surfaces, including carpets, couches, sealed wood floors and tiled bathrooms. It removes water, dirt and grime for a fast dry time and features patented Hoover® SpinScrub® brushes that work together to gently loosen dirt and clean all sides of the carpet and upholstery fibers.

  • Hire A Helping Hand: Consider hiring a cleaning service to do some of the dirty work. Hoover® has partnered with Cleaning For A Reason, the national organization devoted to helping women with cancer have clean homes, and encourages you to select a cleaning service that works with the charity.
