Did you know that the addition of something simple like mats could benefit your business? It’s true! Sometimes we don’t think about how the little things can make big improvements, but with mats, you will see benefits all year-round. Let’s take a look at a few ways mats can change, benefit and protect your business.
Keepin’ it Clean
You wouldn’t walk right into your carpeted home after being out in the rain would you? No, you would wipe your feet on a mat and if you didn’t have one, you’d probably take your shoes off before you walked in to avoid leaving stains on your carpet. If we take this kind of care in our homes, why are we skipping it in our businesses? If you don’t have mats available for consumers or employees to wipe their feet on, they aren’t going to take their shoes off, they are going to walk right in, wet, muddy and all. Mats not only protect your floors from wet and muddy feet, but they help even on the sunniest of days. They trap debris, dust and other unsightly things that you do not want on the floor of your business.
Decrease Clean Up and Extend the Life of your Floors
Because mats are working to keep your flooring cleaner, you will have to spend less time and resources cleaning your floors. If you have carpet, that means carpet cleanings can become less frequent. With less staining, you can extend the life of your carpets so you don’t have to purchase new flooring as often.
Protect Against Slip and Fall Lawsuits
Slip and fall lawsuits have become quite common in the past few years. Some are from scam artists, but most are from people that have had legitimate injuries due to a slip and fall in a business. One of the best ways you can protect yourself and those who come into your business, is to make sure you are using mats at your entryways and throughout your facility. If you are worried about slip and fall lawsuits, schedule a walkway audit—someone will come to your business and evaluate your flooring.
