Keep Your Establishment Clean With a Rental Mat Program

Keeping your establishment clean is a year-round job, so your mat rental program should be year-round too!Gone are the days when you only needed a mat program only for the winter months! Today’s mats have become quite advanced and perform a number of functions.

They are made high twist, heat-set nylon yarn construction which resists packing and crushing. Dirt fil­ters into today’s mats, rather than remaining on top. Today’s Mats are static dissipative with Stain stopping Technology & the yarns are dyed with modern dying technology to hold vibrant color.

What this gives you is the cheapest & hardest working, 24 hour a day, “employee” assigned to keeping your establishment looking clean, crisp & inviting – year round. People today have become more & more discriminatory about whom they will elect to give their business & your mat rental program can play a big role in your image.

Check out a few surprising statistics, with the sources

  • 80% of the dust, dirt and grime in public buildings are “tracked in” from the outside. (Institute of Industrial Laundries)
  • Studies show that one square yard of commercial grade carpeting can accumulate one Pound of dirt over one week’s period of time and up to twice as much in inclement weather. (International Sanitary Supply Association)
  • The estimated cost of removing a single pound of dirt from an office building can exceed $500. (International Sanitary Supply Association.
  • “We estimate that only about 10% of the dirt is removed from mats with a vacuum Cleaner.” (Georgia State University Test)

You would probably take your shoes off at home before you walked in to avoid leaving stains on your carpet, if you didn’t have a mat to wipe your feet off first. If you don’t have mats available for consumers or employees to wipe their feet on, they aren’t going to take their shoes off, they are going to walk right in, wet, muddy and all. Mats not only protect your floors from wet and muddy feet, but they help even on the sunniest of days. They trap debris, dust and other unsightly things that you do not want on the floor of your business.

There are many reasons to have a Mat Rental Program besides image, such as extending the life of your flooring & carpeting, keeping dust from getting into your computers & cash registers, protecting you against slip & fall lawsuits, Etc , the list goes on & on
