Minimize Costs with An Effective Floor Mat Program

An effective floor mat program is one of the most important ways of protecting the floors of any commercial building.  Walk-off mats stop dirt at the door and help keep building maintenance and cleaning costs to a minimum.  In offices, schools, industrial buildings, restaurants and theaters, mats should be a key element in any commercial building cleaning and maintenance program.  Here are a few facts to consider:
  • 70-80% of dust and dirt in a building is tracked in from the outside on people's feet, which has damaging effects on carpets and hard surface floors.
  • One square foot of carpet can accumulate 1 lb. of dirt in 1 week, and double that amount in inclement weather.
Entrance mats are the most common solution to help trap dust, grime and dirt before it comes in contact with your carpets and hard surface floors.  High traffic areas should be pinpointed and strategically placed for maximum effectiveness.  There are numerous options and types of floor mats available for consideration.  Seek the advice of a professional commercial building cleaning service to assist in recommending the proper floor mats for your building.
