How to Flip a Mat
Flipping a big mat to clean underneath might seem a huge task that needs multiple people – but it’s not! Anybody can flip over one of our big custom mats easily and all by themselves…just follow these steps and watch our videos to see how it’s done!
Grab a Corner
Start at one corner of the mat. With BOTH hands, firmly grab the mat (reaching AROUND the edging) and lift up. Try to get a grip on the mat itself as much as possible, not just the edging.
Walk Backwards and Lift
Keep lifting the mat upwards towards you, and walk backwards. Do this as one fluid movement, and walk quickly to keep the mat’s momentum working in your favour.
Continue until you’ve flipped the mat half-over – like a giant taco! Now you can sweep and mop underneath the mat as part of required regular maintenance.
If you’re preparing the mat for storage, you’ll need to continue flipping it until it’s fully face-down on the floor.
Still gripping the mat as you were in the previous step, continue walking backwards until the mat is fully flipped over and face-down on the floor. Keep waking and pulling the mat until it lays flat on the floor.
Putting it back.
Unflipping your mat is easy! Grab a corner like Step 1 above and follow the above directions in reverse order.
