Sloppy Weather Meets its Mat(ch)

In Chicago, we don’t need a groundhog to tell us if the weather is about to change. It’s always about to change.

And while we had a bit of a dry spell over the summer, it’s already time to start thinking about that wet, sloppy season known as… well you know what it’s known as.

Not to cast a cloud (ahem) over what is shaping up to be a beautiful fall, but if you run a business, it is time to start planning for sloppy weather.

That means having the right accessories underfoot.

Keep Mud, Sleet, Snow & Rain Out of the Workplace

In most climates, the rainy season lasts only a few months, typically during parts of spring and summer. However, for the Chicago area, the wet season lasts a staggering seven months, from March through October. And what comes afterward isn’t exactly dry.

Keeping the rain, mud and snowmelt outside is a high priority for businesses for a lot of reasons, some of them more obvious than others. Wet floors are an obvious safety risk and a key contributor to slip and fall accidents. But rainwater and snowmelt that is tracked indoors brings a lot of dirt and debris with it that can also affect indoor air quality. All of which can also affect employee morale and productivity.

The right system of floor mats is an investment in health and safety that pays off literally door to door. And nothing does as much to keep slippery weather outside as our Super Bristle and Ulti-Mats. These mats are ideal for stopping water, mud and dirt at entrances.

The Ulti-Mats include a raised border to contain water and the bristle and carpeted pile of these mats traps dirt and debris before it can be tracked inside.

Combined with our reliable program for laundering and maintenance, our floor mats get the job done year-round, with on-schedule pick-up, deep cleaning and delivery – and the confidence that comes from knowing you have the right system in place for safety and cleanliness.

Reliable Mats for Workplace Safety in any Weather
