Matting

As summer winds down we begin to look at our facility and think about what we will need to keep it clean during winter. The first thing that comes to most peoples mind is matting. The problem is that matting is not a winter only solution. Matting should be left year round.

There are many stats when it comes to matting like, it cost 55$ to remove 1lbs of dirt or that each person in a facility will bring in 65lbs of dirt a year. What ever the case here are a couple of things to think about.

-It is easier to clean dirt when stopped at the door.
-Most hotels and casinos in Las Vagas have matting but no snow.
-Matting helps keep particulate down, which means that people are not breathing them in.
-It's cheaper to replace a mat every 3-5 years than a lobby floor or carpet.
-Less stripping or scrubbing of floors is always cheaper

Yes no matter how you look at it matting is a good option that will save you work and money all year around.
