I usually start doing so and typically people say it's not necessary. I just say I do it in my own home and like to respect my clients' homes the same way.

No, but I'm sure to wipe them good (assuming there's a mat upon my entrance) and I do ask if they would prefer they be removed (& if it's nasty out would just do it anyway).  I also make sure to notice what the homeowner is doing and take a cue from them....
