Organised Home- Challenge Day 11: Stop Dirt at the Door

Organised Home- Challenge Day 11: Stop Dirt at the Door

'While entrance mats can remove much of the soil from the bottom of shoes, a considerable amount of dirt still clings to footwear worn outside.

A "no shoes" policy keeps that soil contained near the front door, instead of inviting it in to curl up on carpets and furniture.'

Property Inspection

A lady from the lettings agency came to inspect the apartment I rent today. It was the first time I had been present when an inspection was carried out.

The lady removed her shoes without being asked. She had visited before, so she would have seen my 'Please Take Off Your Shoes' doormat.

She was a nice lady, though I hope she gives a good report on how I am looking after the place.

Another Colleague

Another drug worker I work with told me she has a no-shoes rule in her house. She asks people to take their shoes off when they come in.

She told me she once that she visited the home of a client. Although it was not a terribly clean house, she offered to remove her boots as the weather was bad, an offer that was declined.
