What Doctors, Scientists, and Home Environmental Experts Say about Dr. Doormat
"Given the large number of fecal bacteria and mold we carry in on our shoes ("about 93% of the bottom of all shoes contain fecal becateria") I believe that Dr. Doormat, an antimicrobial treated doormat is a great way to reduce and control our exposure at the entrance before it can enter our homes."
Dr. Chuck P. Gerba, Professor of Environmental Virology, University of Arizona
"A typical doormat becomes a growth site or reservoir for microbes and can contaminate the sole of a shoe prior to entering a home. Dr. Doormat effectively inhibits the growth of microbes on the surface of the doormat minimizing the transference of pollutants into the home, helping to support a healthy home environment."
Dr. Ernest Crutcher, Microbiologist Redmond, WA
"We are enjoying the mats both at home and the clinic. Pets as well as their owners come in all day bringing their paws and shoe with all types of debris, chemicals, and germs. It’s good to know that we have one more tool in our arsenal in the battle to keep theclinic as germ free as possible. We have two at the front door, side by side, and one at the employee's entrance. At home our mats are located at 4 different doors. It is like Old MacDonald's farm with 3 horses, 5 dogs, and 2 cats. I really enjoy the peace of mind that I have knowing that our floors are healthier because of Dr. Doormat."
Sherry & Dr. Bobby R. Zahn, DVM, Highlands Animal Clinic, Highlands, TX
“Dr. Doormat is perfect for our four-legged family members. We can’t completely prevent our pets paws from encountering potentially harmful environmental toxins, allergens and microorganisms. However, Dr. Doormat's technology can certainly help reduce their exposure to these elements and disable harmful microorganisms while offering our pets a unique line of protection. It is sturdy enough that they can’t destroy it and soft and comfortable enough for them to sleep or eat on. I personally recommend it to all my family, friends and patients.”
Mel Davis, DVM, Woodstock MD
“Dr. Doormat is more effective than the average doormat in removing dirt and debris from the bottom of our shoes. I use it in my home.”
Jeffrey C Philibert DVM DACVIM (O), New England Veterinary Oncology Group LLC
"Dr. Doormat is a functional, durable product that I enjoy using in my own home."
Dr. Rachel Schreiber, Allergist, Rockville & Germantown, MD
"Step On Up – Stop tracking allergens and microbes into your home. Dr. Doormat is a new allergy friendly doormat that's eco-friendly and specially designed to neutralize seasonal allergens, dust, pesky pollutants and odors. A non-toxic, antimicrobial formula is permanently bonded to the yarn. Perfect for high-traffic areas such as doorways and hallways."
Jennifer Kales, Allergic Living Magazine (Canada/USA)
"Pre-school children, who ingest the most dust, have low body weight, and lack fully developed organs and immune and nervous systems are at the highest risk from dust and dirt track-in. Pollutants in carpet dust contribute to the total exposure of nearly all people, but especially to infants and toddlers. Soil sticks to the shoes, is carried into the house onto your floors and rugs, to the hands of a toddler and finally to their mouth.
Wiping your shoes twice on Dr. Doormat and using an efficient vacuum cleaner with a dirt finder can reduce dust levels in the rugs by 99%, or 100 times. These same procedures can reduce lead levels by 95%, or 20 times."
John Roberts, M.S., P.E., Home Environmental Expert Sammamish, WA
"So many of my patients live in the suburbs and suffer from allergy problems and skin conditions caused by household dust, molds and other skin irritants. Dr. Doormat is an inexpensive and effective way to improve your home environment with little to no effort on the home owners part. What a terrific product."
Dr. David Green, MD, Dermatology, Bethesda, MD
