Exterior Floor Mats in New England Stop Dirt at Door

The cost of removing one pound of soil and dirt from a commercial building can be between $500 and $600, but you can avoid those hefty costs by outfitting your building\’s entrance with exterior floor mats. Mats are the first line of defense for your building, and investing in them now can save you hundreds of dollars later.

Floor Matting Systems Begin Outside

A strong floor matting program starts outside your building, where porous and coarse exterior floor mats can scrape off debris like ice, snow, dirt and salt. The mats you choose should also be tough enough to handle dense debris and oils from parking lot material.

To effectively absorb moisture and scrape debris from boots and shoes, vestibule floor matting should be at least eight feet long and six feet wide. In the past, less matting was needed because most business people wore shoes with flat leather soles, but today\’s shoes more often have integrated designs that offer more traction outside. This design change also means that there are more places on shoes for snow, dirt and ice to cling.

Once inside your building, visitors should be welcomed by a wiper mat that removes more small particles and moisture. While these mats should be attractive, they must also be sturdy enough to provide a last line of defense before visitors walk onto carpet or tile.
