Entrance Mats: Maintaining Clean Floors Inside Working Establishments

A clean and safe establishment is appealing to clients and potential customers. There are unpleasant consequences that can happen if establishments do not maintain safety and cleanliness inside the working environment. Soaked shoes can cause injuries such as slips and falls. Floors and carpets will be easily ruined from frequent exposure to moisture and sediments caused by muddy foot traffic.

Because of these, soiled flooring can drive away potential customers, accident rates will increase -- making the company liable for possible occupational hazard charges -- and business owners will be forced to spend money in replacing carpets or buy expensive cleaning equipment.   And in a busy setting, the habit of wiping off dirt from shoes with a rag or tissue may slip off someone's mind due to the constant demands within the workplace.

A primary maintenance accessory that can help keep an area clean is entrance mats. Essentially, these mats are used to wipe off grime and dirt under people's footwear before entering a house or a building. There are different kinds of mats sold in the market, but for heavy duty purposes, entrance mats are the appropriate choice for the job. These mats are made of sturdy materials that can keep dirt, water and other sediments from soiling floors and carpets.

There are two types of entrance mats that can be used in the working environment: indoor entrance mats and the outside doormats. Indoor entrance mats are ideal for keeping a busy environment clean and safe. These mats quickly absorb moisture and soil from shoes, reducing the risks of slips and falls that are caused by wet floors. They are low maintenance and practical to use, which can save companies from unnecessary repairs and utilities.

Four types of Indoor Entrance Mats:

— this mat is compliant with DOC FF1-70 and FF2-70 regulations and has been tested for its safety quality. Its surface is made of 100% continuous olefin filament pile plush carpet that is 3/8" thick, perfect for retaining excess moisture and dirt.

Mud Chucker 229 Outside Door Mat — this type of mat scrapes off thick grass, muck, snow and dirt from shoes before a regular outside doormat is used. It doesn't only clean the bottom part but the sides of shoes as well. It is ideal for companies that usually deal with sediments such as farm lands, construction sites, and cleaning industries.

Multi-Guard 220 Entrance Matting — this mat can remove heavy dirt and grime on footwear due to its scraping fingers. This helps maintain entrance doorways clean, even in harsh conditions.  Ideal for heavy foot traffic moving through outdoor entrances.

Compliance with safety measures lessens the risks of potential hazards to workers and clients and thus prevents liability charges against companies. Under the Occupational Safety and

Health Act (OSHA) Section 5(a)(1), employers are required to “furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees." This act enables the use of safety accessories in response to prevent injuries to workers, both fatal and non-fatal.
