Waterhog mats are very popular. They are the industry standard for wet-weather conditions, and they can absorb 1.5 gallons of water per square yard of mat.

Water on a floor is a major safety hazard and big contributor to slip, trip, and fall incidents that cost businesses about $1 billion per year. So, for commercial spaces where people are frequently tracking in water on their shoes, Waterhog mats are a smart investment.

But what makes Waterhog mats so popular?


The first reason is variety. There are so many Waterhog mats to choose from. There are several types of entrance mats for normal applications, and several available for recessed applications.

There is a Waterhog clean-room, sticky mat, too. All of the Waterhog mats come in tons of colors and resist fading.


Aside from all the water that these mats absorb, they are designed to be particularly safe with undersides designed to grip the floor. A very important quality of a good quality mat is that it stays in one place.

Waterhog mats also have a patented nubby surface that effectively scrapes the bottoms of shoes to remove dirt and debris (along with the water, snow, and ice.) Some Waterhog mats, like the Waterhog Masterpiece are certified as “high traction” by the Floor Safety Institute. Increasing traction is the first rule of improving floor safety.


Waterhog mats are very eco-friendly, and several types like the ECO Elite are certified “green” and will get you LEED points. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and it’s a well-recognized worldwide program for demonstrating the your building or space was carefully designed with the environment and impact on the environment in mind.


Waterhog mats do what they’re supposed to do. They are extremely durable, easy to clean, and they’re just a solid, reliable, water-absorbing mat.

With so many types to choose from, there’s a Waterhog mat for everyone. Adding some Waterhog mats to your commercial space is an inexpensive investment for obvious, long-term benefits.

Waterhog mats keep all that mud, grit, and water at the door and inside the mat instead of all over your floor.
