Ceramic tiles, terrazzo, granite, hardwood and marble are of the popular flooring options that are most preferred by commercial building owners. While they are a valuable investment for improving the look of your business, they can be costly to maintain and replace without the right protection. Over time, tracked in moisture and dirt causes your flooring to develop scuffs, scratches, stains, and marks.

In addition, tracked in debris can cause the deterioration of your floors over time especially if it means that your flooring is exposed to water, sand, salt, and other substances. However, using entrance matting will eliminate the damaged caused by visitors tracking dust and debris from outdoors inside. Here are some important statistics about flooring maintenance and how matting can provide floor protection in order to help extend the life of your flooring.
