Fact or Fiction: Taking Your Shoes Off Indoors

44444You hear it all the time…”Oh, I don’t allow shoes on my carpet! Shoes will make my carpet filthy!” Little do most people know that shoes, unless unusually soiled, generally only carry dust and loose dirt that can be easily vacuumed. What you may be surprised to know is that bare feet, or even feet clothed in the cleanest socks, pose a risk to your carpet. The oils and skin particles on the bottoms of the feet are a big problem for carpeting. No, you don’t see them, and you may not even feel them, but think about it…feet sweat. That sweat, along with the natural skin oil as well as dry skin is easily wicked in to the carpet and attracts dirt and grime. Really your best bet is to invest in some good slippers that are only worn indoors. That way you don’t have to worry about outside debris (again, easy to vacuum) or the build up of oil from the bottoms of feet. And when your weird Uncle Larry visits and brings his favorite pair of slippers? Well, you might think he’s not so weird after all. He’s doing you, and your carpet a favor.
