Keep abrasive materials such as dirt and small stones out of the house by using doormats
Doormats are one of those home fixtures that are often ignored, but are actually very beneficial to a home, and especially to your floors. They are essential because they prevent dirt and water from getting into your interior floor every time someone – you or a visitor — steps inside your home. The mat fibers help to absorb and contain dirt, debris, and moisture, keeping it away from flooring. By reducing the amount of dirt and debris on your floors you will help to keep your home cleaner and also prevent your floors from getting scratched or scraped.
