Why is necessary to store food 6 inches off the floor and away from the wall?

You shouldn't store food on the floor, or too close to it. For the main reasons simply of contamination. We walk on the floor, our pets walk around our floor, and dirt and other organisms find it easy to live there. In the event your roof leaks, or there is a flood, it also better to keep items we consume out of the way of bacteria. In the advent that you are storing food close to the floor, or on it, always make sure its cleaned before you consume it. Canned goods can washed with warm soapy water. Don't store anything that has been opened ( such as cereal ) on the floor or lower shelving. Hope this helps.
