Avoid tracking in mold, dirt and dust, lawn chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers.

Remove your shoes before you come in from outdoors to ensure a healthier home. You avoid tracking in mold, dirt and dust, lawn chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers. Place a mat by the front door with a sign that says, “Shoes here, please.” To encourage those who don’t comply, you can leave slippers, flip-flops, or a box of disposable shoe covers at the door.
