Along with snow and ice, you also have to keep the ice melt residue off your floors and carpets.
The best way to do that is to use a Stearns product called, "Concept 915". Concept 915, comes in a convenient small package, that you can pour directly into a mop bucket or extractor. It is a non-streaking, neutral product, that protects your floor finish.
Each packet makes 3 to 5 gallons of cleaner.
