We Canadians know all too well that as winter draws near, the weather can hard to predict. Fall leaves can be buried by snow in a matter of days, and -20° weather can warm up to wet mud in the blink of an eye. Keeping your open houses clean at this time of year can certainly be a bit of a challenge, but that’s no reason not to hold them!

Come rain or shine (or snow and ice!), house-hunters are still going to be scoping out the local real estate, so it’s important that you’re prepared to impress.
Of course, we all know that your home has to be perfect if you’re going to welcome strangers through, but how do you keep it that way with snow, rain, ice, or mud coming in with every guest?
