Have you ever met someone or gone to visit someone in their home and they made you take off your shoes before you came inside? While you may have thought they were a bit crazy at the time, they actually have the right idea when it comes to keeping your carpets looking clean. Wearing shoes inside your home when you have carpets can easily cause stains in your carpet and even bring in dirt that can get deep into your carpet where it is hard to get out.
Reasons to Keep Your Carpet Clean
Dirty shoes track in dirt and other germs onto any surface that you walk on. This may not seem like a big deal at first but there are several reasons you want to keep your carpets clean including:
● Keeping them clean and healthy - Not only should you want your carpets to look clean but you should also want them to last. When dirt, toxins, and other things get deep into your carpet, you actually shorten the span of its life. You will have to replace your carpets more often as a result, which is not cheap.
● Children and pets spend a lot of time on the floor - Because pets and children are smaller, they tend to spend a lot of their time closer to the floor than adults do. They touch it more and will likely put objects found on the floor into their mouths. There is even a chance of heavy metals, like mercury or lead, being in the carpet because they are found in driveways and parking lots where we walk. This can lead to sickness or harm caused to the child or pet which can be avoided.
