Location is Everything
Placing mats in the right places can stop 85% of dirt and debris from entering your building while preserving the finish of your floors. Consider placing mats at the front of entryways to provide a space for guests to scrape their shoes before entering. Entrance and lobby mats provide the next layer of defense by keeping debris out while creating a positive, professional brand image. Mats may also be appropriate for high-traffic areas like school hallways, elevator banks or airport terminals. Mats in these spaces should be made with heavier rubber backing to reduce movement. Anti-fatigue mats can help reduce health issues in manufacturing, foodservice and industrial environments.
Maintaining Your Floor Mats
Keeping your floor mats clean and effective requires year-round regular maintenance. Skimping on care can reduce their ability to trap dirt, provide comfort and limit odors in your facility. Regularly shake out mats to remove dirt and dust, and follow up with a good vacuuming.
