Client often ask us how long they can expect their commercial entrance mats to last in crowded places like airports and malls. The quick answer is: “For as long as you’ll take care of them!”
When you’re starting off on the right foot with a high-quality, commercial-grade entrance mat, you’re setting yourself up for success. But just like any product that performs a service or a function, the performance of that product is directly reflected in the amount of maintenance and care it receives.
It’s just like changing the oil in your car: a little bit of care (and cost) in advance saves big trouble down the road! But don’t worry – maintaining your entrance matting is even easier than changing your oil! All it takes to keep your matting working well is regular vacuuming, and periodic deep-cleaning based on your levels of foot traffic.
Our Grizzly FX is meant for ultra-high traffic levels in busy commercial buildings, like shopping malls and airports. While every application is different, a Grizzly FX mat typically lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 years in heavy duty service. For example, Metropolis at Metrotown typically gets 5 years of service life from their Grizzly FX mats, and they’re the third busiest mall in Canada!
