There is always that awkward moment entering a person’s home for the first time. You desperately look to make eye contact with the homeowner, while furtively looking around for signs that will tell you whether there is a de facto “shoes off” policy or not. Is the homeowner wearing shoes? Are other people starting to remove shoes? Are there white carpets? Does it look like the home has a maid service? Are the resident shoes piled up at the door?
It can be a confusing dance — not just for guests, but for homeowners too. Many people would prefer to have guests remove their shoes at the door, but worry that it may come across as rude. We’ll help you navigate that awkward maze as seamlessly as possible to make the transition to a cleaner, fresher home — sans heinous shoe bacteria.
