To Save your Carpet, Socks are Best

So, why is wearing socks the best practice to help extend the life of your carpet.  It’s pretty simple, really.  The other two options (Wearing Shoes and going bare foot) have the capacity to reduce the life of your carpet but in different ways

First, wearing shoes is abrasive.  The abrasive action causes wear on the carpet strands and fibers.  Also, especially in cold weather, shoes that have been worn outside bring in other abrasive particles.  Salt and salting chemicals like calcium chloride are very abrasive and also pull moisture from their surroundings.  As you can imagine, this is not good for your carpet and other types of flooring such as laminate, hard wood, and tile.

Secondly, going bare footed can release natural oils and lotions onto the carpet.  These can create an attractive force for dirt and other small particles.


This is why a pair of soft, comfortable socks is your best choice.
