Your Perfect Space: Are your carpets making you sick?

Your Perfect Space: Are your carpets making you sick?

"In my home we take our shoes off before going inside, as one thing I know for sure is shoes worn all over the place can track some nasty stuff through a house, which manifests as toxic dust that can really impact your health.

Imagine you walk along or across a road even once a day. If you live in a town or city it will likely be a busy road. All of the nasty chemicals from passing cars, exhaust fumes, etc. are being picked up on your shoes. Then you go home and walk those same shoes through your house… Not a good scene for your health – especially if you have young children who spend a lot of time crawling around on the floor! It’s a fact that most household dust is tracked in from shoes with a significantly smaller proportion coming in from outdoor air."
