The same reasons why you wear shoes outside of your house is the same reason why you wouldn’t want to wear shoes in the house. There’s dirt and a long list of unmentionables that you wouldn’t want to track into your private living space. Imagine if the high traffic dirt paths were eliminated, mystery goo disappeared, rocks, sand, and other sharp objects, including heels and cleats didn’t cause additional and ongoing damage to your floors. How much time and money would you save on cleaning, maintenance and replacement costs?
When I mention it, it’s agreed that it’s a good idea, but the ones who express the greatest challenges about maintaining their carpet or other flooring are also the ones who make every excuse about why they can’t do it or that their kids won’t do it or they can’t ask their guests do it, and the list goes on.
