The easiest thing you can do is minimize the dirt entering your home at the source. I have the LLBean Waterhog mats on the front steps and then again in the mud room. Shoes get wiped here, and then taken off and put in the shoe rack in the mud room. We then immediately change into house slippers before entering. I have the same mats at the back entrance too. You can get the mats in indoor/outdoor versions. I vacuum them whenever I’m doing the floors and also hose them off periodically.
