Entrance mats do more than just keep your floors cleaner, dryer, and safer. A quality entrance mat helps you make that vitally important good first impression on your client when viewing the finished project for the first time.
A high-quality entrance mat that lays flat without lumps and bumps, has sturdy edging on all sides, and actively works to dry and clean inbound foot traffic gives a building an air of quality. Attention to detail in your floor mats goes a long way in communicating that your company “sweats the details”, even on the little things that your competitors overlook and ignore. You only get one chance to make a good first impression, so why not start off on the right foot?
Not all entrance mats are made equal! Different types of mat fibres perform different functions, so it’s important to choose the right material for the job.
Cheap indoor mats achieve their ultra-low price point by cutting corners. Thin, floppy backing, no proper edging on the sides, and cheap fibre construction all add up to a mat that just can’t get the job done. Olefin fibres are a popular choice for these mats, because it’s stain resistant and very inexpensive – but olefin is also totally non-absorbent, too! That means that olefin entrance mats don’t actually absorb any water when people walk over them in the rain.
Quality indoor mats use nylon instead of olefin. Nylon is just as colourfast and stain-resistant, but unlike olefin it actively absorbs water. Just like a kitchen sponge, an entrance mat made of nylon will soak up and hold water tracked in by pedestrians until it has a chance to evaporate.
If keeping your floors dry and safe is your goal, we can help you choose the right mat for your clients.
