Winter Is Here

Winter Preparation 

It’s that time of year again when we’re starting to get hit with snow storms.  Whether it’s freezing rain or lots of snow, this wet weather can make your business floors slippery and a potential tripping hazard.  It is important to ensure your business is set up with proper matting to help prevent slips and falls.  Furthermore, having mats and mops available to remove the salt stains off of your floors helps maintain a professional looking image.  Why not give Swan a call for a free, no-obligation quote?  They will help you determine what mats will work best for the high-traffic areas in your business.  Plus, it takes a load off your plate as you will no longer have to spend a copious amount of time cleaning.  Swan will pick up your soiled mats each service cycle and exchange with clean ones.  The soiled items are brought back to our plant for professional cleaning.  It’s as easy as that.  Please see our video below for more information.

Trak90 Mats

Trak90 Mats

If you’ve been searching for a heavy-duty mat for your business, look no more!  At Swan we carry Trak90 mats which feature extra-course nylon fibers blended with traditional nylon carpet fibers.  This duo of fibers is designed to create excellent scraping and wiping action for maximum soil-stopping power.  Some of the other features of this mat include:

  • Superior Dirt-Stopping Power - Course nylon fibers scrape and wipe dust and dirt from shoes
  • Resilient - High-twist, heat-set nylon resists crushing to better trap dirt and extend the useful life of the mat
  • Fade Resistant - Solution-dyed nylon won't fade in sunlight or with repeated washing; impervious to bleach
  • Safe - Certified high-traction by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI)

Trak90s are perfect for entrances with high use of mobility equipment.  Furthermore, it also stops ‘mat creep’ on low pile commercial wall-to-wall carpet.

Change In Seasons

Is Your Business Ready For Fall?

 

Can you believe that summer is almost over?  As much as we want to hold onto the warmer weather, we cannot avoid the inevitable change in seasons.  Is your business prepared for the coming rain, colder temperatures and snow?  With children returning to school and parents heading back to the office, there is bound to be more foot traffic through your doors.  This of course, brings with it tracked in dirt and salt stains on your floors. 

 

It is important to consider first impressions of your business and the safety of both your customers and staff.  Swan Dust Control will place mats in the high traffic areas and entrances, so that any snow or dirt is captured by the mat before it’s even able to make a mess on your floors.  Our Customer Service Representatives will stop by every two weeks and replace the dirty product with clean stock.  This will not only protect your floors, but will reduce cleaning costs and wasted time that could be better spent with your customers.  Call us today for a free, no-obligation quote from one of our Sales Representatives.

Benefits of a Rental Mat Service

How Can Mats Protect The Floors In Your Business?

The entrance to your business has a lot of traffic, and with that foot traffic comes water, salt, and mud.  All of these factors can damage your floors.  Having clean, no-skid mats at the entrance and leading into the business can help to save your floors from damage.


Discoloration and Stains:

  • Whether that's from water, salt and mud, they leave floors looking dirty and stained.

Scratches:

  • If your floor has a finish, both salt and dirt from shoes can scratch the finish.  Once the finish is worn, the floor can be penetrated, leaving it dull and damaged.

Drying out:

  • Salt pulls moisture from the floor, further damaging it and leaving it susceptible to water and dirt.

Using a rental mat service provides you with clean mats delivered right to your business, with the dirt and salt taken away. Non-slip mats can also protect against slip and fall accidents that can be caused by wet floors.
