If maintained and cleaned regularly, a high-quality anti-fatigue mat can endure for three to eight years. To help you get the most out of your Logo mats, keep your employees safe and productive, and delay the inevitable need to buy new mats, we’ve compiled a list of maintenance and cleaning procedures.
Move Used Mats to Less Frequented Areas
Like new tires, anti-fatigue mats are something you should invest in. The better you treat your investments, the longer they will survive and more profit they will provide for you. Logo Mats may be rotated to prevent premature wear, just like tires can be rotated every few thousand miles to even out wear.
If you have recently acquired a new, standard-shaped mat, for instance, you might want to move a well-worn mat to a less-frequented area of the workplace. Another case in point is relocating an operator who usually stands at one end of a square or rectangular mat to the opposite end.
This method may be used to create mats of any size or form. When only a small section of your mat has worn out but the rest is still in good condition, you may simply cut off the worn out sections, re-border the edges, and rotate the mat to its appropriate orientation.
Standardized and spotless
If you have any doubts about whether or not your Door mats can be cleaned, you should ask your dealer. This is because lower-quality mats may break down or wear with regular cleaning. Mats constructed from high-quality nitrile rubber will not be damaged by common cleaning agents like degreaser, bleach, ammonia, or acid-based cleaners, nor will they be damaged by hot or cold water.
Anti-fatigue mats may be safely cleaned using a mop or deck brush and the aforementioned products, or they can be pressure-washed with a hose and hung to dry. In fact, you can clean smaller mats in a standard industrial kitchen washer.
Clean Out the Dust and Debris Below Your Rugs
The longevity of your anti-fatigue mats can be drastically shortened by the accumulation of dust, filth, chemicals, metal shavings, food items, and even nuts, bolts, and washers. They can also make the ground slippery and unsafe to walk on.
Keep your Door mats free of buildup by cleaning them and the space under and surrounding them on a regular basis.
Rapidly Mend Tears and Rips
Small punctures in tires are usually repairable if you get to them quickly enough. Damage to your anti-fatigue mats, such as rips or tears, should be addressed immediately.
Our mats are built with a two-part rubber cement that is stronger than the mat itself and does not affect the two-year complete replacement guarantee, which is included in the repair kit.
Wherever you decide to buy your repair kits, double check that the included goods won’t void your warranty and that the glue is strong enough to permanently restore your mat to its original condition.
Perform Frequent Mat Checks
Mats, employees, and businesses all benefit from routine inspections for deterioration, lack of traction, trip hazards, and other potential dangers.
Avoid Resting Heavy Equipment on Your Mats
Mats are easily damaged by heavy objects like furniture legs and equipment. The best way to prevent these items from reducing the effectiveness of your anti-fatigue Logo mats is to have them made to order. Chair and piece of equipment rest cuts are one possibility.
After washing, double-check that the mats are totally dry.
Wet mats increase the risk of accidents and wear and tear, putting workers at risk. Check with the seller of the anti-fatigue mats you’re considering to see if they include grommets for hanging them out to dry.
Holes in lightweight materials like anti-fatigue mats, textiles, sheet metal, and carbon fiber can be protected with grommets. They are commonly used to prevent ripping while inserting hooks, wires, rope, or cables.
After hosing or pressure washing, stationary equipment including cleaning carts, recycling dumpsters, and other storage containers can be dried using Logo mats.
Color-coding mats to prevent cross-contamination
Mats of the same size and shape in hot or warm zones could be cleaned and rotated with mats from cold zones, potentially exposing workers to potentially toxic chemicals or metal shavings that have fallen onto the floor. To prevent this, use mats of varying colors for the various locations within your organization.
Get the Most Out of Your Money
Injuries are avoided, productivity is increased, and absenteeism and turnover are cut with the use of anti-fatigue mats. They also demonstrate to your staff that you care about their health and safety on the job as much as you do at home.
Whether you’re just starting out or have been using anti-fatigue mats for a while, it’s important to keep the aforementioned considerations in mind to ensure the safety of your staff and get the most out of your financial investment in them and your company.
Justifications for Having a Kitchen Mat
If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, a mat made of tough rubber may be a good investment. A kitchen mat is more than simply a pretty addition to your home; it’s a smart purchase for a number of reasons.
Here are the top four arguments in favor of investing in a rubber floor mat for your kitchen right now.
Lessen Tiredness and Soreness
Tiredness and pain in the feet, legs, and back are common results of standing for long periods of time on hard surfaces like tile or hardwood. Having an anti-fatigue rubber mat in the kitchen may give cushioning and support, making it easier to stand and work for extended periods of time without experiencing weariness. People who work in occupations that demand them to stand for long periods of time, including chefs and bakers, may find this useful.
Avoiding Accidental Falling
A mat in the kitchen may help reduce slips and falls, which is another good reason to have one there. Because of the potential for spills and damp surfaces, kitchens provide a hazard for visitors. Traction and stability can be provided by a perforated mat with a non-slip backing, making the area safer. A mat may also absorb liquids, making cleanup simpler and reducing the risk of secondary accidents. Purchasing a high-quality mat is a great way to ensure the safety of you and your family while cooking.
Protect Your Floors
Having a mat in the kitchen might help prevent damage to the flooring. Spills, stains, and scratches are commonplace in the kitchen because of the high volume of foot activity. A thick mat can prevent harm to your flooring from occurring. If you have hardwood or tile flooring, which may be readily damaged by water or high foot activity, this is especially crucial. Another way a mat might help you save money is by extending the life of your floors.
Simple to disinfect and maintain
A rubber mat’s low maintenance requirements are just another incentive to install one in your kitchen. The majority of modern kitchen mats are constructed from stain- and spill-resistant fabrics that can simply be wiped clean with water. In addition to their practicality, our rubber kitchen mats are also very low maintenance. More time may be spent eating and less time wiping up spills if you have a mat in the kitchen.
In conclusion, we believe that our industrial rubber mats would be a great asset to any business kitchen. They’re soft underfoot, so your feet won’t hurt, and they’ll save you from tripping over anything on the floor. Invest in one of our Logo mats now for a safer, cozier, and more aesthetically pleasing kitchen tomorrow.
