Tip: 85% of the dirt in homes is tracked in on the soles of our shoes! According to the EPA's "Doormat Study," virtually all lead dust inside homes is caused by lead-contaminated soil from outside.

One of the easiest ways you can prevent this dirt (along with the lead, chemicals, bacteria, feces, pesticides, allergenic dust, animal dander, and other pollutants) is the simple of act of taking your shoes off at the door.
