Entry Mats Are Important!
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that to adequately remove contaminants from shoes, a combination of mat materials, textures, and lengths are required. They go as far to say that it is critical in trapping soil, pollutants, and moisture that would otherwise spread through your entire building.
The International Sanitary Supply Association estimates that 24 pounds of dirt can be tracked indoors in just 20 days. Wow! It gets worse. The estimated cost to remove just one pound of dirt is $600. The good news is that with the right matting you can cut down the amount of dirt and contaminants that come through your doors by a whole 85%. But without an entry mat system:
- Soil, dirt, and contaminants will spread throughout large areas, requiring high maintenance costs.
- Lobbies and entrances will quickly become unattractive – giving a bad first impression to your clients and customers.
- The chances of injury are increased. If someone tracks in water, they can easily fall or decrease the life of your carpet.
