Having a floor mat at every entry way significantly cuts down on dirt for a cleaner home. This preventative measure is cost effective and also adds flare!
Using mats preserves carpet and flooring by eliminating dirt that creates a gritty sandpaper effect. Areas nearest doors take the most abuse and wear even faster.
Studies conducted in schools and commercial buildings show a 40-99% reduction of floor dirt depending on the floor coverage of the mat.
The following options are ideal for home use:
- brush mat
- scraper mat
- traditional rug mat
Quick Tip: If the mat has a latex back, it will stay in place. When mopping a wood or linoleum floor, wait for it to dry before putting it back or the latex will stick.
