Different Types of Entry Matting

    23 November 2019

Are you considering installing walkoff mats in your business? Here are the reasons why you need walkoff mats and how they can help save you money.

Visitors Make Your Floors Dirty

According to research, 70% to 80% of dust, dirt, and grime is tracked indoors from visitors to your business. This means that there could be permanent damage to your floors if you do not do anything to keep this debris off your floors.

While cleaning can reduce the damage, it is better not to have it tracked into your business in the first place. Instead, use walkoff mats to trap the dirt and liquids before they reach your floors.

Cleaning Costs Increase Without Walkoff Mats

It is estimated that the cost of removing a 0.5 kilogram of dirt from a building can costs nearly $800 in cleaning costs. In fact, it takes just 150 people entering your workplace to track in a pound of dirt during a 5 day work week. That means that you will end up spending tens of thousands of dollars every year just to keep your floors clean without walkoff mats.

Carpets Accumulate Dirt Quickly

Some business owners opt to install carpet in order to protect their concrete floors from damage caused by dirt and liquids. Unfortunately, this is not really a cost-effective solution because one square metre of carpet can accumulate nearly a kilogram of dirt in just one week.

Under wet conditions, this figure climbs to twice that. As a result, you will end up spending a considerable amount of money on cleaning your carpets. In high traffic areas, you may even have to replace the carpet more often than advertised by the carpet manufacturer’s warranty.

Walkoff Mats Keep Your Business Clean

Walkoff mats are the most effective way of stopping dirt and moisture at your entranceways, while helping to keep your building maintenance costs to a minimum and your floors in top condition. They are also effective for internal use in high traffic areas, including office hallways, kitchens, freight elevator entrances, and factory entrances.

With branded walkoff mats you can convey a positive image for your business to employees and customers by showing that you care about their safety as well as the overall appearance and cleanliness of your facility.
