How to Clean Muddy Footprints on Carpet: If you end up with mud on your carpet you need to clean it in a particular order. The first thing you need to do is to allow the mud to dry out all the way before you can do anything. When the mud is wet you are trying to combat moisture as well as the dirt. The dirt is easier to work with when it is alone. After the water has dried out you can use a brush to break apart the compacted dirt that is left over. You need to break it so that you can vacuum up the remnants after it has been broken. You may need to work on the area a little at a time so that the dirt is not able to expand further. After you have removed the dirt and vacuumed it up you need to treat the rest of the area. Mix water as well as dish detergent so that you can use to spot clean the area. Spray the area then use a clean cloth to dab at the area. This should leave the carpet looking clean and mud free.
How to Remove Mud from Tile & Grout: The other area that you might have a problem with mud getting on is tile. The tile floors exist in entry areas, kitchens and dining rooms. When you have mud on these areas you can treat it differently than you can when it has gotten on the carpet. You want to use a broom and dustpan to pick up as much of the debris as possible. Don’t sweep the mud in large areas and try to keep it close by so that it won’t spread out. You then need to clean the tile with whatever cleaning solution that you use on your floors. This is often water that is mixed with vinegar to clean the floors after the mud has been swept up.
