Floor Mats to Protect your Foyer Floors
Floor mats are generally small sections of high traffic, durable carpet with a sturdy rubber backing which can serve a myriad of purposes both indoors and outdoors as well as in cars and trucks. However, floor mats are also available as thick rubber pads utilized mostly by businesses in which employees must stand for long periods of time, such as cashiers. These floor mats relieve fatigue of the feet and alleviate pain and long term damage to ankles, knees and the back. Floor mats, depending on their intended use vary in cleaning needs but should be vacuumed or beat out regularly and deep cleaned on a more periodic basis.
One category of floor mats is those used in homes and by small businesses inside of each doorway or in certain high traffic areas such as laundry rooms, porches or mud rooms. As these floor mats are generally used to wipe shoes off, they have special cleaning needs to ensure long term use and to maintain a good overall appearance. In addition to being vacuumed on a regular basis, special care should be taken to remove stains as they occur and prevent a gradual all over darkening of the floor mats. Many of the smaller floor mats usually found in homes can even be machine washed. However, those with rubber backing should be air dried as exposure to the high temperatures of a dryer will damage the mat. For those floor mats which specify no machine washing, a spray carpet cleaner and some elbow grease will accomplish a more thorough, deep down clean than just vacuuming provides.
Those floor mats which serve the same general purpose but are found in large commercial spaces and are much larger require especially intensive cleaning due to the sheer volume of people walking on them each day. Special carpet steam cleaning machines and solvents can be used to deep clean large commercial floor mats and will present entering customers with a favorable first impression of a business establishment.
