Commercial entrance matting is available in a variety of styles and patterns, but they are more than just an aesthetic. Entrance floor mats can provide safety, make a great first impression, simplify floor maintenance and provide moisture and dirt control. If you own a commercial property, here are some reasons why you should install entrance matting in your building.
Entrance mats placed on either the interior or exterior of building entrances serve as a safety measure. Snow, rain, and ice, can make a marble or tile floor subject to slips and falls, when the surfaces are not served by an entry mat. Entrance mats can prevent the dangers of slipping as visitors and employees can wipe off their feet before or upon entering the building. Unless you want a potential liability, you need to make sure that you are preventing harm from these slippery conditions.
Provides Interior Flooring Protection
During seasons like autumn and winter, mud, dirt, and dust can easily be tracked in as people enter your building. This means you need to take extra time or expense to clean the entrance area daily. By setting up an entrance mat, you can prevent the tracking of dirt and moisture, reducing the risk of scratches, scuff marks, and staining on interior floor surfaces. Entrance mats can also eliminate damaging particles from the bottoms of shoes when people wipe their feet, thus prolonging the appearance of your interior flooring.
Achieves Clean First Impressions
By using the right products together, you can effectively improve the appearance of your building’s entrance. For example, foot grilles, Mat Tech floor matting, and daily vacuuming of carpets and interior flooring will make your building seem more inviting and provide you with a better first impression for visitors.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
When dirt and debris get stuck in an entrance mat it doesn’t follow your employees and visitors into your building. With less dirt getting tracked into your building, you will significantly improve indoor air quality.
Reduces Interior Maintenance
Studies have shown that over 80 percent of dirt and debris in a building is tracked in from the bottoms of people’s shoes. Installing entrance mats can reduce interior maintenance by a high percent, making interior maintenance much easier.
