Floor Mats and ROI: Saving Your Floors and Saving Money

Floor matting is essential for keeping your facility floors free of dirt and moisture, but they can also provide a positive ROI to building managers. Floor mats are more than just a necessary commodity — they are a smart investment. According to ISSA, it costs approximately $600 to remove one pound of dirt from a building’s floors. That cost is made up of the time your custodial team would spend dusting, mopping, sweeping or vacuuming, plus the wear and tear a pound of dirt can do to your rugs, carpet, floor finish and equipment. Let’s say your facility sees foot traffic of about 1,000 people in 20 days. According to Crown Mats, about 24 pounds of dirt can be brought into the building in that time period. That’s an astounding $14,400 pounds of dirt removal! Now let’s consider a building with a three-mat entrance system that covers the first 15 to 18 feet. That system can prevent up to 90% of the dirt from ever getting tracked onto the floors. A proper three-mat system is your best defense against the elements. A scraper mat followed by a scraper/wiper and finally a wiper mat can remove heavy debris, contain soil and absorb moisture to protect your floors. Selecting high-quality, high-performing mats can stop dirt from entering your facility and result in real cost savings. Contact us today to learn more!
