Commercial floor mats can leave a lasting impression on your current and potential customers. As one of the first things your visitors will see and use upon entering your building, it’s crucial that your floor mats are clean and functional. However, when do you know that it’s time to replace your current floor mats with newer ones?
In the most recent blog from A.G. Maas, we’ll discuss some signs that tell you it’s time to replace your current commercial floor mats, as well as some tips for when you begin to look for new floor mats.
When Should You Replace Your Commercial Floor Mats?
They Show Signs of Fading
Have the colors on your floor mats begun to fade? Can you barely see your logo on the mats anymore? If your current floor mats are faded and look dirty, they might leave a negative impression on your company’s visitors. Replace them with newer and cleaner floor mats to restore how your visitors are viewing your company upon entering the building.
Your Mats are Becoming a Hazard
Floor mats are responsible for more than just showcasing your company’s logo. During rainy or snowy days, they’re responsible for keeping your visitors’ shoes dry. However, the longer that mats are used, the more likely they are to become a slipping and tripping hazard. Don’t wait until a customer slips and potentially injures themselves. When your floor mats appear to become hazardous, have them replaced as soon as possible.
The Mats Show Signs of Wear and Tear
The longer you have the same entrance mats, the more likely they are to show evidence of wear and tear. They may begin to fray or become full of holes and rough patches. While these signs can become a visual issue, they may also become dangerous if left alone for too long.
They’re Lowering Your Office’s Air Quality
Your commercial mats soak in dirt and moisture, among other things. Mold and bacteria thrive in these areas, so older mats can often be responsible for lowering your office’s air quality. If the air in the spaces around your mats is becoming stuffy and causing any health issues, such as coughing and sneezing, have your mats replaced.
What to Look for When Buying New Commercial Floor Mats
Before installing new commercial floor mats, it’s important to remember they will likely experience significant foot traffic each and every day. Make sure that they’re strong enough to withstand the amount of traffic that you often receive.
When you’re looking for new commercial floor mats, ensure that they meet all of your needs. Look for floor mats that are:
- High quality
- Slip resistant
- Anti fatigue
