Is it ok to leave a tiny gap between the shoe moulding and the floor?
 
Hello,

I recently had some moulding and shoe moulding installed in my home. The installers left a tiny gap between the shoe moulding and the floor in certain places. My house was built in 1940 and the floors are not completely even or level. So, I was wondering if it's ok to leave the gap or if I should seal it?

I would prefer to leave it - I don't want to do the work. But, I'm scared of moisture or bugs getting in and out of the walls.

Thanks!

My expectation is that this is a cosmetic issue only. If you have moisture issues, shoe molding will not solve it. Same with bugs.
