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.

Mat Systems – Placement

Mat Placement strategy

Roscoe's general placement strategy for rental mats.

Two weeks ago, Roscoe posted on the benefits of having a mat rental program; today we stress the importance of mat placement. If a mat rental system is properly installed it should get nearly 100% of the dirt coming through the door. The reasoning behind this is that 30% of the dirt coming into a building is picked up in the first three feet of matting, while 85% is picked up in the first 15 feet. That adds up to a spotless work environment!

Different mat types serve for different stages of defense against particles and contaminants. The first line of defense is the scraper mats, which also has anti-fatigue mat properties. The heavy and durable rubber stops the toughest of dirt, mud, snow, water and debris from boots and shoes, which is why the best place for these mats are entryways, spillage areas, locker rooms and work stations. All-rubber mats have improved ergonomics which increase employee comfort, reduce fatigue, and result in greater productivity.
