Similarly one may ask, where do you put a door sweep?
The door sweep goes on the bottom of the door on the side that faces the outside so a seal can be made between the rubber of the sweep and your threshold on the bottom of your door frame. Not all doors are universal. You will most likely have to trim to fit your door.
Likewise, should a door sweep touch the floor? Door Sweeps. This long strip of metal is surface mounted to the bottom of the door. Ideally, the sweep should be installed so that is comes in contact with the bevel on the threshold but where the sweep will not touch the flooring material (i.e. carpet, tile) as the door swings open and closed.
Considering this, what side of the door does weather stripping go on?
You'll be left with a pair of small gaps between the door weather stripping on the frame and the sweep, at the bottom corners of the door.
Will a door sweep keep mice out?
Keeping mice out requires a door sweep with a little more rigor. You should test doors with sweeps even if they look well installed. Mice will either push through these sweeps or chew off a few bristles.
