It is an easy habit to get into… Honestly, you are in and out of your home all day long and removing your shoes upon entry may seem like an extra hassle. That said, if you follow this simple suggestion regularly, you might save yourself some headaches in the future.
Consider the bottom of your shoes and all of the traffic they see on a daily basis. There are so many different particles being tracked around on them, and when you wear them inside you are introducing them into your home. Now consider everything you do on the floors in your home, especially your children and babies.
Here are just a few things that you might have stuck to the bottom of your shoes:
- Mud and dirt
- Dust and grime
- Fecal matter
- Food particles
- Organisms and bacteria
- And yes…. Even mold spores!
Each of these particles are extremely small, but can cause health issues for your family. The mold spores can attach to anywhere in your home and begin to grow, causing even more problems.
So the next time your guests want to leave their shoes on upon entering your home or the next time you leave them on out of convenience, it might be a good idea to reconsider. A little inconvenience can go a long way when it comes to the cleanliness and safety of your home. If you suspect a problem, contact MoldEaters for mold removal in Portland, OR today.
