Why are Mats important?Part 1

Is having a mat really important to us? Learn how useful mats can be and prepare to be surprised.

Aqua Trap Entrance Mats

Aqua Trap Entrance Mats

Cleanliness is one of the most coveted and important thing for everybody. When customers choose a restaurant, cleanliness ranks at the top for fast-food destinations. (Restaurants & Institutions, 1994). And when asked, “What’s the first thing you look at when judging cleanliness?” the most popular first response of consumers was “Floors” (42%). (CDI Research, 1991). Hence, a doormat or an entrance mat can keep your entrances clean by trapping the dirt and preventing it from tracking inside the building.

Entrance Matting

Estes Entrance Matting

However, keeping these floor clean can be costly as well and it is estimated that 90% of building maintenance cost is labor.” (Cleaning Management). 39% of all custodial time is devoted to floor care maintenance. (National Executive Housekeepers Association) while proper matting alone can save approximately 200 labor hours in the average home per year. (Mr. Don Aslett, America’s #1 Cleaning Expert). Hence, it very vital to choose an entrance mat that can successfully stop the data from tracking inside as “A dollar spent keeping soil out of a building will save 10 dollars in removing the soil once it’s inside.” (Cleaning & Maintenance Management).

Entrance Matting

Orientrax Entrance Mats

Up to 24 pounds of dirt can be tracked in by just 1,000 people coming through an entrance over a 20-day work period. (ISSA). While the estimated cost of removing a single pound of dirt from a modern building can exceed $600. (International Sanitary Supply Association). Judging by this data, we can spend up to 21,600$ in removing dirt in a month from a modern building that has a traffic of up to 1000 people.

Without entrance matting, 1,500 people can remove 42% of the finish from the floor. (3M). 30% of the dirt tracked in is trapped in the first 3 feet of a typical mat, 85% of the dirt gets trapped within a 15-foot length of typical matting. (ISSA). Hence having an entrance mat is very important for keeping the dirt from tracking inside the building and trapping the dirt effectively without incurring the huge costs of cleaning up the flooring.

Beautiful Uses of Coco Runners for Weddings

Coco runners can be used for much more than in home decor. Take a look at how these  beach weddings featured this matting made from real coconuts to add to their summery ambiance:

The coco matting aids in helping the bridal party walk outdoors in heels as it adds extra grip that stone and sand don’t offer.

I think that the above photo features a bamboo mat but you could get the same effect by using a coco runner.

The neutral color of the coco matting pairs well with virtually any color combination you may have at your wedding or event.

Here’s two brand new pictures of our Coco Runners participating in a beach wedding near Chicago a couple of weeks a go:

 

Our coco runners are extremely durable and eco friendly. They are made from coconut husks which create an extremely resilient material, and can be used multiple times and continue to look great. We have Vinyl Backed 1 1/4″ Coir Runners which are a tad more durable, we also offer the non Vinyl backed runners that are 3/8″ thick, come in a variety of different widths and have the option of vinyl nosing to add a little bit of more durability to the coco matting.

Speaking of weddings, looking for a gift for an upcoming wedding? Why not a personalized doormat with their last name? They come in a ton of different sizes, colors, fonts, and borders and make for a sweet, personal, and unique gift the newlyweds will be sure to love.

5 Reasons Why Chair Mats are Awesome

Chair mats are an important addition to the office but one we don’t often think about, or  maybe one we don’t think we need. Here are 5 reasons why chair mats are a necessity:

  1. Chairs can easily wear down carpeting and other types of flooring from the pressure of people sitting in them all day long. Chair mats prevent marks and distress on expensive carpeting and other types of flooring.
  2. If you’re spending all day sitting in your chair at your desk you are probably going to have some coffee or eat some lunch in it. At some point or another you are also probably going to have a couple spills. It’s nice to have a bit of a safety net, something super easy to clean up, something that’s not going to get stained. Like a chair mat!
  3. They make rolling chairs easier to roll around on in places that you wouldn’t normally have an easy time rolling around on. Like a carpet!
  4. If you run an office then chances are you aren’t having employees take off their shoes at the door, so these chair mats will come in handy because they will catch dirt coming off the shoes from throughout the day.
  5. Chair Mats are great for alleviating back and leg pain as chairs can easily glide around the mat. Without chair mats, people have to repetitively push around the chair with their legs which can lead to a lot of leg and back aches

Office Chair mats also come in plenty of great styles and some have better grip for more unruly carpets. They also come in different shapes and sizes so they can fit into any size office space, whether it be a large office with a lot of desks or a small at home office, or maybe just a desk in the corner of your living room.
