Business owners: Entrance mats stop dirt, salt (in Winter from icy sidewalk care), and other debris from being tracked further into your office building – which can spell trouble for polished floors, rugs, carpets, and polished floors. Protecting your commercial and retail investment is usually in the forefront of business- and building-owners’ minds. This extends from high-cost maintenance responsibilities all the way down to the often overlooked entryway floor protection.
There are some other reasons you want to make a small investment of entryway mats: quality mats in office foyers and vestibules prevent dangerous slip-and-fall injuries, especially in icy, snowy or rainy weather. This aids in protecting your employees, office renters, customers, and walk-in traffic from a painful accident.
Good mats will extend the life of commercial carpets and flooring, and both will stay cleaner for longer periods of time. There is naturally less wear and tear when grit and grime from shoes are taken care of at the mat instead of being ground in throughout the building.
Lastly, entrance mats are visually pleasing and create an inviting, professional look when your prospects and clients come to call.
