Who knows what's on your shoes at the end of the day? Some possibilities are dirt, pollen, oil, coal tar, antifreeze, lawn chemicals, and fecal matter. Yuck! And without realizing it, these intruders often get a free ticket into your home.
Here are two ways to help contain these home intruders:
1. Invest in doormats, one inside the door and one outside. These will help trap some particles on the bottom of your shoes. Remember to vacuum these often!
2. Have a shoe storage bin near the door. This will keep your shoes, and their contaminants, off the floor and out of sight, decluttering your home and keeping it cleaner!
Following these tips can improve the life of your floors and the air quality in your home!
