A Guide to Maintaining Your Floor Mats

Our floor mats in Boston add safety and increase the cleanliness of your facility, but they can present their own cleaning challenges, especially in the high-traffic areas where they are most needed. When cleaning and maintaining your mats, keep these points in mind:

Understand Your Mats

Take note of your mat’s material before applying any chemical cleaning treatments. Also take a look at the backing material and consider any specific instructions from the manufacturer. Understanding the properties of your mat can stop you from unwittingly damaging it while cleaning.

Rotate!

Mats in high-traffic areas should be rotated regularly (at least twice a year). This small move can significantly increase its lifespan. For areas that see huge amounts of traffic, consider investing in multiple mats that you can rotate in the space.

Vacuum Every Day

Stop debris from building up and protect your mat’s backing by vacuuming every day. If your mat is in a high-traffic area, kick it up to twice a day.

Enlist Professional Help

Scheduling a deep cleaning once a year can prolong the life of your mat. It can also reverse a lot of the everyday damage that can reduce its beauty and quality.

Limit Sun Exposure

If your mat is in an area that receives direct sunlight, consider closing the blinds when the area is not in use. Limiting sun exposure reduces fading and can keep your mat looking like new for years to come.
