Why Floor Mats are Essential
Even if you don’t have heavy traffic in and out of your establishment, wet weather season tracks in 12 times more dirt, not to mention water. Vacuuming only removes 10-40% of dirt and dust. Not only is dirt a problem, but with wet dirty floors, safety becomes an issue as well.
Statistics show that 40% of the average company’s cleaning budget is spent on floor care. Floor mats can drastically reduce this expense by trapping dirt and water, keeping it from being tracked throughout the building, and reduce surface wear and stains… saving you thousands in repair and replacement costs.
Slip and fall accidents are more prevalent than ever. Many companies fail to recognize the impact it has on their organization, employees, and customers.
Slips and trips are one of the most common workplace injuries and make up 35% of all reported incidents. To no surprise, 90% of slips occur on wet floors! This can be significantly reduced or prevented with the installation of mats in entryways and in high traffic areas where water spillage is a concern; such as in break rooms and rest rooms.
As business owners and managers, it is your responsibility to provide a safe and healthy place for your employees and customers.
In addition to safety and cleanliness, there is the “image” of your business. A customer’s first impression of your business happens the moment they walk in the door.
42% of customers say they judge the cleanliness of an establishment by the floors.
If you want to make a good impression, it’s important to make sure your floors are always maintained.
Customized logo mats at your entryway can help reinforce your company’s image before your customers and employees step foot in your door.
Placement of floor mats is also essential. In addition to entrances, using mats in high traffic carpeted areas in the building is essential. Floor mats will help to extend the life of your carpet, reducing staining and wear and tear in high traffic areas.
Anti-fatigue mats strategically placed on hard surface floors, where standing in one position for long periods of time is part of the employee’s job, is another great way to help safeguard your employees against leg and back fatigue, increase productivity, and reduce discomfort.
Did you know… the average worker’s productivity is reduced by 25% when standing on hard surface flooring?
