As the winter season takes effect, the flip-flops will be out and the boots will be in. What difference does that make? Boots were made to handle the winter weather conditions of snow, rain and ice. They are strategically designed with rubber grips and grooves to foster the avoidance of slipping, falling, and getting your feet wet. With more grips and grooves in our footwear, the more dirt and debris will get stuck in them and enter our buildings and flooring.
The boots aren’t just dragging in dirt and debris, but they are also dragging in water, which means even MORE DIRT, potential water damage to your flooring, and most importantly, a potential safety hazard to your employees, consumers, etc.
