Re: No dirty boots in the house


Perhaps they would be handy for a homeowner to have when the contractor comes for a look see and he has high top lased up boots.

Re: No dirty boots in the house


Or, ya know, snow... I always feel so bad that folks insist on taking off their shoes. I mean no one that lives here bothers, but for some reason contractors insist on doing it - and I don't have a bench or anything in the entry way (too dang small) so they're always tryin to balance on one leg, on wet snow boots, and I'm like OMG just walk on the dang floor already before you kill yerself!

That's because we respect our cutomer's property. Even though a customer might say it's not necessary I don't want to make a mess or running the risk of my boots being dirtier than the customer realizes. I normally remove my boots on the porch although our winters are mild compared to further north.

Re: No dirty boots in the house


Boots are safety equipment for me. Take em off.... nope. Find another contractor. Or I'll wear some covers.

Once the work is being done, sure...boots will stay on, but by that point we've got floor protection down or if it's a real quickie kinda thing then at least a couple drop cloths as runners. But if you're just coming in to look at the job? You think you're gonna leave a good impression with the customer if you leave a trail of filthy footprints?
Either way, I'm already used to taking off my shoes at the door of my own house so it's not a big deal at someone else's.
