Floorcare is an important part of managing an office if you want to maintain a clean and safe building.
Commercial door mats actively trap dirt and moisture when people walk into a building. This reduces the spread of dirt and water throughout the premises, helping to keep floors safe and clean.
It is not always easy to decide on the best floor mat solutions for your business, as there are plenty of options available. Some are more effective than others, so in this article we are going to take a look at the options to help you decide on the most appropriate floor mats for your business.

The Importance of Office Mats
The importance of appropriate floorcare solutions are all too often overlooked. 80% of dirt is carried into office buildings on the soles of people’s shoes, so it is vitally important to lay down entrance mats capable of trapping dirt and moisture to prevent it from being spread throughout the building.
Paying for commercial mats may seem like an unnecessary added expenditure when there are cheaper options available, but when it comes to choosing your business’ floor mats, you really should not compromise on the cost.
Cheap floor mats are simply not as effective at trapping dirt and moisture as purpose made commercial mats. This means that they will not prevent the spread of dirt and moisture throughout the building. This could lead to increased floor cleaning costs, which can become more expensive than laying down more effective floor mats in the first place.
50% of all reported accidents at work are due to slips and trips, so from a health and safety point of view, cheap mats are not a good choice as a floorcare solution. They will not trap moisture, meaning your floors can become dangerously wet and slippery. They are also prone to curl at the corners, causing a nasty trip hazard. Provide a safe office environment to both your staff and visitors by providing effective office mats that do the job.
Choose Your Fit with Custom Door Mats
At Citron Hygiene, we understand that business entrances can be very different, and this means there’s not a standard mat that can be used in every situation. This is why we provide custom door mats in a variety of shapes and sizes.
You can choose the style of mat that best suits your doorway, whether it be a semi-circular mat, semi oval mat or a rectangular mat, our range of entrance mats will be able to provide what you are looking for.
Make sure you do not neglect other areas around your office where floors may become wet and could therefore benefit from custom floor mats, such as drink vending machines, water coolers and coffee machines. Taking a proactive approach to floorcare will help to reduce slips and trips throughout your business and ensure the safety of staff and visitors to your premises.
