Dr. Marchese describes why families should remove their shoes before entering their homes.
People should remove their shoes when they enter the home because if you think about what you walk around all day long on the outside of your home, you’re walking across people’s grass or maybe across a park, picking up pesticides that people have sprayed, you’re walking across other people's at works carpet or flooring, and you pick up toxins on your shoes, and then you come home, and you walk around your house, and those toxins accumulate in your home.
We know from studies done on carpet dust and on from dust bunnies like on hardwood floors that there’s actually solvents and pesticides that were not sprayed or used in a person’s home, found in their home. And so, the theory being that it was tracked in from the outside.
