Lewisville Carpet Cleaning Snyder’s Carpet Care discusses reasons behind removing shoes indoors.

Do your friends often ask you to remove your shoes before stepping inside?  Perhaps you found it a little strange as it goes against the way you normally do things.  The truth is your friends are doing their carpet a big favor.

No matter how clean you believe your shoes to be there are still numerous benefits to removing your shoes before walking indoors:

  • Did you know that 35% of household dust is believed to come from the outside soil. Carpets absorb the dust particles sometimes contributing to asthma and allergies.
  • Boots and high heels can cause wear and tear on your carpet.
  • Shoes can drag industrial pollution, animal excrement, chewing gum and pesticides into your home and carpet.
  • Even lotions on the bottom of your feet can build up and collect dirt on your carpet.

If you and your family are not ready for a “no shoes” policy then some simple carpet cleaning tips can help:

  • Regular vacuuming and a minimum of two carpet cleanings a year.
  • Don’t forget area rugs in those highly trafficked spots and doormats for guests to adequately clean their shoes.
  • Another helpful hint is having your family wear indoor slippers or flip flops to decrease build up of dirt and lotions.

Removing your shoes before stepping indoors is a policy we strongly recommend.  It will help your carpet achieve a better lifespan through less wear and tear and keep it looking as beautiful as possible.
