How to Keep Your Entrance Mats Clean

Entrance floor mats are the best way for a business to proactively avoid such accidents and liability claims. Intelligent use of outdoor mats and front door mats is the best way to increase safety. Moreover, these floor mat installations remind your guests that they are entering a clean and professional workplace that values visitor safety.

Entrance mats are essential additions to any facility. Our high-quality front door mats are available in a range of materials including carpet, vinyl link, and rubber. Slip-and-fall accidents are common and cause businesses an inordinate amount of time and money. Now… How do you clean them?

Caring and maintaining your logo mat will depend on the type of mat that you have. Each specific floor mat will have specific cleaning instructions. It is recommended that you follow the instructions and clean your logo mat regularly so as to help maintain it in good condition and so that is lasts longer. 

Quality entrance matting is designed to hide dirt as well as hold it, so you’d be surprised at just how filthy an entrance mat that looks clean actually can be! Regular vacuuming is the easiest way to keep your entrance matting working well and will extend its service life by a substantial amount. 

A primary entrance to a shopping mall or office building should be vacuumed daily, whereas a secondary or tertiary entrance may only need it once or twice a week. Many maintenance staff forget that the underside of entrance matting needs cleaning too. Dirt and moisture can accumulate underneath the mat over time, which will lead to consequences.

Here are some of the consequences of not cleaning entrance mats:

1. Contaminants can act like sandpaper and abrade the finished floor surface
2. Causes your matting to migrate and potentially become a slipping hazard itself!
3. Moisture can turn into mold and mildew, creating air quality problems

Prior to the mat being put back into service, it is recommended that the floor where the mat will be placed be cleaned to remove dust and dirt. This will allow the mat to grip the floor more effectively reducing mat movement with traffic.
