Get the best out of your floor mats! There’s no doubt about it – floor mats are some of your best and most useful investments. They not only keep your business’s floors clean and safe. They also upgrade the way you utilize your floors for marketing and branding purposes. Knowing how to create a floor mat plan is different depending on the situation. Different facilities have different requirements to actually get the best results from their floor mat placements. But fret not! We have some tips on how you can create a floor mat plan that will work for your business.
Here are some basic guidelines for creating your own floor mat plan for your business:
Our floor mats keep dirt and debris from the outdoors from being tracked indoors and contaminating the floors. Aside from making sure all your entryways are covered, it would also help to identify which areas get the heaviest foot traffic and make sure to get substantial coverage for them.
Different parts of your facilities require different types of protection. Make sure you identify the areas that need reinforcement from waterproof floor mats, scraper mats, anti-slip mats, grease-control mats, etc.
Your best solution for floor protection and care is to use a combination of floor mats for specific places. For instance, you would want to follow up your scraper mats at the entryway with a softer brush mat before exposing your bare floors (or carpet/carpet mats). Another example would be anti-slip mats that prevent slips and falls or waterproof bathroom mats in your commercial restrooms. Consult your floor mat expert for the types of floor mats that are available for you to choose from.
Aside from the type and placement of floor mats in your business facilities, you also have to pick the right size of floor mats for each of the areas you wish to cover. As a rule of thumb, aim for 90% coverage, especially in areas with heavy foot traffic.
Here’s one caveat: no well-designed floor mat plan will work effectively – if at all – without the right floor mats to begin with. Make sure to select floor mats only from companies that have both the expertise and experience in all things commercial floor mats.
