When we talk about mats, most people immediately think of a logoed entrance mat. Logo mats are one of the most popular products we offer because our clients love how they look in their entryway and the understand the key role they play to brand their business.
But there’s so much more to mats than just creating a first impression. Having mats in your facility will also cut your labor costs, workers compensation claims, and even technical costs. Keeping a clean workplace is easier than you think when you use mats correctly. But most importantly, mats will save you money.
Here are some facts about mat usage:
80% of the dust, dirt & grime in public buildings are “tracked in” from the outside (Institute of Industrial Laundries).
Studies show that one square yard of commercial grade carpeting can accumulate over a pound of dirt over one week & 2 pounds per week during inclement weather (International Santiary supply association).
The estimated cost of removing a single pound of dirt from an office building can exceed $500 (International Sanitary Supply Association).
It’s estimated that only 10% of dirt is removed from mats with a vacuum cleaner (Georgia State University Test).
It’s estimated that 90% of business maintenance cost is labor (Cleaning Management).
Dirt & dust cause 9 out of 10 computer system failures (Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service).
A buildup of .043 inches of dust on a heating/cooling system can decrease efficiency by 21% (Environmental Protection Agency).
