From the Bottom of Your Feet to the Bottom Line

From the Bottom of Your Feet to the Bottom Line

It isn't hard to make the case for high-quality floor mats when the weather begins to change and there's a trail of wet leaves or dirty snow at the doorstep. But having the right floor mat system in your workplace does a lot more than keep your floors clean.

The right floor mat system saves you money. Here are a few of the ways that a high-quality floor mat system makes dollars and sense:*

  • A dollar spent keeping soil out of a building will save $10 in the cost of cleaning to get it out of the building
  • The estimated cost of removing a single pound of dirt from a modern building can exceed $600
  • The average cost of a slip-related injury is more than $12,000 while the average cost to defend against a slip and fall lawsuit is $50,000
  • Workers who stand 8 hours on a concrete floor are 33% less productive, while an anti-fatigue mat increases productivity by 20% to 50%
  • Lost productivity as the result of poor indoor air quality and "sick building syndrome" costs American businesses more than $100 billion a year

Step Right in with a Floor Mat Rental Program that Keeps the Dirt Out

You probably walk right over them without ever giving them a second thought. But did you know that the right floor mat at the entrance to your workplace can keep out more than 80% of the dirt, dust and moisture that typically finds its way in?

It's the easiest cleaning tip ever. But to do the job right, your floor mats have to be the right type and size and properly cleaned on a regular basis. Vacuuming only removes a small percentage of dirt at the surface of the mat or carpeting.

Reusable Rental Shop Towels, Mops & Mats and the Profitability of Sustainability

Reusable Rental Shop Towels and Rags

Sustainability pays dividends to the environment, but it can also have a positive impact on the bottom line.

Having these products available, and in clean condition, reduces overall building maintenance and cleaning costs.
