The great thing about our mat rental program is we will regularly launder your mats for you, meaning the only thing you really need to do is sweep or vacuum in between pick-ups if debris is starting to build up. For our direct mat sales clients, we have put together some cleaning tips to help you keep your mats in great shape for years to come. Take a look:
- Entryway mats – When you use mats on both sides of your entry doors, you will eliminate the majority of the dirt, soil and other debris that enters the building. This will save your indoor mats from excessive use
- Vacuum regularly – By vacuuming or sweeping your mats daily, you will be able to keep the soil and debris that has been tracked in, from becoming trapped in the mat fibers. Some mats may not need to be touched daily, but those in high-traffic areas should get some attention every 1-2 days.
- Stain-removal – If someone accidentally spills something on the mats, you should give it immediate attention. If it is allowed to sit for a long period of time, it could stain permanently. Use a clean, dry cloth to absorb as much of the liquid as possible and then rinse with clean water. If it appears to need a chemical cleaner to remove the stain, give us a call for recommendations.
- Storage and handling – When you carry your mats, you should roll the mat with the pil facing outwards, but do not store the mat upright while rolled–this can cause the edges to roll up, which can become a tripping hazard. When you store a mat, roll it up and lay it flat somewhere safe. Take care not to store items on top of your rolled mats.
