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.

Why are Swan's Rental Mats Efficient?

What Materials Make Swan's Rental Mats Effective?

The first step to ensuring your customers are safe from slips and falls is to place matting in entrances and heavy-traffic areas.  However, not just any mat will do the job right.  For instance, you don’t want to purchase mats that curl in the corners and cause customers to trip.   Our rental mats are specially manufactured with premium high quality materials to provide an outstanding performance at your facility.  Here are some of these materials:

  • Anti-skid nitrile rubber backing customized for hard floor surfaces or carpeted floors
  • Rubber backing helps prevent curling and cracking, and allows the mat to lay completely flat
  • Rubber borders facilitate transition and cart traffic
  • Cut pile yarn allows dirt to penetrate and hide in between fibers until the next service from Swan
  • Super absorbent 100% nylon cut pile carpet surface resists packing and crushing

Winter Is Coming

Why are mats and mops so important during the winter months?

 

Fall is coming to an end and the temperature is starting to slowly drop.  Winter weather is creeping up on us, and soon businesses will need to start thinking about ways to keep the snow and salt off of their floors.  Without proper matting, the risk of customers slipping and falling is much higher.  This is obviously something that should be avoided at all costs as the safety of your customers should be the top priority.  Plus, having mats and mops available to remove the salt stains off of your floors helps maintain a professional looking image.

 

Here are some of the many ways in which mats can keep your staff and customers safe during the winter months:

  • Prevent slips and falls, and reduce the risk of liability
  • Reduce daily cleaning costs by substantially minimizing tracked-in soil.  Research shows that overhead costs associated with cleaning greatly increases during the winter months. 
  • Extend the lifespan of flooring surfaces
  • Help maintain a great impression with your customers. 
  • With Swan, your soiled mats are picked up at your location for each service cycle, and then exchanged with clean ones.  The soiled items are brought back to our plant for professional cleaning.  It’s as easy as that. 

 

Call Swan today for a free quote and be prepared for the coming snow!
