How to Keep Your Entrance Mats Looking New

entrance matEntrance mats not only protect the inside of your premises from dirt and water and protect individuals from falling but they can also be a marketing measure. You can even put a logo on certain types of entrance mats.

Once you’ve gone to the trouble of buying beautiful, hard-working mats for the entrance of your business, you will want to keep them looking new. Fortunately, that’s not hard to do. We offer a giant selection of entrance mats, and how to clean them varies slightly between different types.

Many can be washed in a commercial machine and we have washing instructions available that are specific to each type of mat. In general, you want to wash like types of mats together and like colors together.

You don’t want to wash them in water that’s too hot because you can actually melt synthetic-fiber mats.  Same thing with the dryer. Some can go in a dryer if the dryer isn’t too hot. However, laying them flat to dry will extend their lives.

Some mats can’t go in a washing machine, and those need to be just hosed off outside. A mat that is very dirty or crusted with mud needs to be hosed off anyway before washing in a machine.

It’s important to keep mats clean because if they become very dirty, then they create the problem of adding to dirt and water being tracked through your commercial space. You want your mats to solve a problem, not add to the problem.

Also, remember that entrance mats should lie flat. When the mats no longer lie flat and start to get frayed or damaged, it’s time to replace them.

As we mentioned in an earlier article, the statistics for slips and falls are staggering. Use appropriate entrance floor mats to protect your business from these types of avoidable accidents.

Whatever you choose, clean entrance mats are a big plus for your business. Do you have other questions? Are you not sure what you need? It’s easy to contact us, and we’re happy to help you. You can always call us at (877) 333-1018 or email us at for more information.
