Does Your Business Have Entrance Mats?

Every business has one thing in common — foot traffic. The only difference between buildings and businesses is the amount of folks coming through the doors. This is where a simple entrance mat can make a big difference to your bottom line.

Obviously, consumer orientated business buildings like retailers, medical complexes and office buildings get more foot traffic, but just the movement of employees in any business will bring in dirt, mud and other gritty matter (like salt in wintertime) that will wear away carpets and flooring.

Regular commercial cleaning services definitely cut back on this wear and tear with vacuuming and floor care, but when Mother Nature hits there’s nothing stopping the onslaught of grit from visitors. That’s where entrance mats are a great solution to cut back on wear and tear and expensive replacement costs down the road.

Thankfully, people are pretty good about wiping their feet on an entrance mat when it starts raining or snowing. If your business has a lot of traffic your entrance mat will need to be larger and more “heavy duty” to properly get the job done. An extra mat or two can also be brought out during abnormally heavy or prolonged weather conditions.

Another huge reason to have entrance mats is the safety factor. According to government statistics, over 3 million employees working in the food service industry are injured every year from slips and falls. Another 1 million guests suffer the same fate. This is a common problem and can be easily minimized with a good entrance mat wherever people come and go.

When you look at all the positives a simple entrance mat can deliver, it just makes good sense to have them. A 72” x 48” mat will cost you anywhere from $50 to $100 depending on what you need. For all they do, it’s a pretty cheap solution. And don’t forget, if you want to spend more you can have them custom-made with your logo or message – or whatever you want!

Wilkes Barre Winter Floor Care

When winter weather hits your expensive flooring can get severely damaged. The worst part is you may never know it until it’s too late.

The culprit is not from the extra dirt and debris carried in by the snow, but from the salt that is used for ice maintenance. Salt is a killer for flooring because it acts the same as floor stripping. Chemically, it is high in pH just like your basic floor stripper product.

Here is an excellent article on floor care regarding salt:
