5 Reasons you should Remove your Shoes Before Entering –
You may be one of those people who cringe at the thought of having to remove your
shoes at the door, but you will hopefully change the way you think after reading the
following five reasons to take your shoes off before entering the house. You just never
know what kinds of germs will hop on your feet when you walk in grocery stores where
spilled food rots on the floor, in public restrooms, on sidewalks where dogs defecate, or
in workplaces where toxic chemicals splash and spill.
1. Feces are Present on almost 100% of Shoes:
Walking around your house in shoes could just as well be the same as wiping
poop all over your floors. The reason? A University of Houston study found that
coliforms, which are universally present in feces, are found on 96% of shoe
soles. What’s more, 39% contain C. diff, an antibiotic-resistant bacteria that
causes diarrhea, and 27% contain E. coli.
- Bacteria Lives on Shoes Longer Than Almost Anywhere Else:After thorough researching, the University of Arizona found that bacteria live an
exceptionally long time on shoes — longer than in most other places. They
speculate the reason is because there is a continuous buildup of new bacteria
that feeds the growth of the existing bacteria.
- Wearing Your Shoes Inside Could Increase Your Risk for Cancer:Meanwhile, another study done by the Battelle Memorial Institute found that lawn
care chemicals can also transfer to walkways via rain, meaning your shoes can
pick up dangerous lawn care toxins regardless of whether or not you walk directly
on the grass or other chemically treated areas. Another chemical that transfers to
sidewalks then ends up on the bottom of your shoes: automobile gasoline.
- Ninety percent Chance Whatever is on Your Shoes Will Transfer to The
Floor of Your House:
A Baylor University study found that people who live near asphalt roads sealed with coal tar have an increased risk of cancer from toxins because the substance
can be found on sidewalks and other walkways due to rainwater transfer.
Numerous tests have shown that bacteria, fungus, and viruses present on the
bottom of your shoes do not wear off the more you walk. Those suckers cling to
shoe soles for dear life and eventually end up on the tile, wood, and carpet floors
of your house. In fact, U of A scientists found that whatever is on the bottom of
your shoes will end up on your floor 90% of the time. And if you have carpet, that
number is actually 99%.
5. Despite What You Think About Building Up Your Immunity:
Sure, exposure to some types of bacteria is actually a good thing as it builds up
the body’s immunity and makes you stronger. However, bacteria present on
shoes is from fecal matter, and the truth is that it can be harmful to your health.
Therefore, medical experts advise that this be one place you skip purposeful
exposure to help “boost your immunity.”
The Importance of Vacuuming –
The main reason for vacuuming is to maintain a clean and sanitary environment, and it
is a quick and uncomplicated way to clean.
Vacuuming benefits you in the following ways:
Reducing lint and Dirt
Vacuuming helps to reduce lint and dust buildup, which can make you sick or trigger
allergies. Particles can easily become trapped in hard floors and carpet fibers.
Regular vacuuming will get rid of them, ensuring that particle buildup is kept to a
minimum. Ensure that your vacuum has a sound system of filtration and adequate
Getting rid of odors
Vacuuming eliminates foul odors from your environment that may have been caused by
unattended spills, old food, or pets. Once some odors have become embedded in the
carpet fiber, they are difficult to remove, leaving you with no choice but to throw the
Vacuuming removes odors from the surface of carpets. Modern vacuum cleaners have
a variety of cleaning options, including the ability to eliminate odors.
Increased carpet lifespan
Vacuuming is one of the best ways to clean carpets and rugs and the most convenient
way to maintain them. When you vacuum regularly, you remove dirt and soil that can
damage the fibers of your carpet and shorten its life.
When you extend your carpet’s life, you are also extending its sustainability.
Vacuuming eliminates any breeding ground for fungi and bacteria that can cause a
variety of health issues for you and your family. Dirty surfaces can be hazardous for
people who have asthma or allergies because the dirt can become airborne and cause
Regular vacuuming, on the other hand, provides you with a clean and healthy
environment because it cleans up various aspects of your home, such as floors,
upholstery, and other above-floor surfaces.
Vacuuming is an essential part of any household and should be done regularly. The
frequency with which a home should be vacuumed is determined by several factors,
including family size, children, pets, and rugs and carpets.
Vacuuming is important because it removes lint and dust, extends the life of your
carpet, and eliminates odors. It also prevents the buildup of dirt, debris, dust, and foul
odors, which can be difficult to remove if left unattended.
