How Workplace Floor Mats Aid in the Disinfection of Shoes

Employers are spending a tremendous lot of time, money and effort ensuring the safety of their personnel and visitors as workers across America return to their offices, factories, warehouses, stores, and other places of business following the pandemic. Many of these initiatives, understandably, focus on all of the precautions we’ve been accustomed to over the year: masks, hand washing, social distancing, and increased cleaning and sanitization of surfaces and circulated air.

However, many business owners are unaware that one of the most important aspects of cleaning their workplaces is practically directly under their feet. High-traffic areas can act as a highway for pollutants, including viruses like COVID-19, to enter the workplace.

Corona virus can readily and swiftly spread on floors in polluted locations, according to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. COVID-19 was found in half of the hospital staff’s shoes.

Viruses, of course, aren’t the only things that can be tracked indoors on the bottoms of shoes. Bacteria and other contaminants travel well, making other sanitizing methods ineffective.

That is why sterile environments such as laboratories, hospitals, and food service establishments invest in floor mats that are precisely engineered to catch contaminants before they may poison the environment. These “sticky mats,” when put in the entryway of clean rooms or other sensitive places that must remain sterile, clean and disinfect the shoes of visitors before they enter the facility.

Clean room floor mats have a sticky surface that traps pollutants, dirt, and debris. Our Micro Guard matting, for example, is treated with AEGIS Microbe Shield technology to protect against microorganism degradation, lowering pollutants, bacteria, and odor emissions in entryways and other high-traffic areas. Many matting alternatives are available in our online store from vendors such as Waterhog, Pure-Comfort, and PermaTrack.

Clean room floor mats, sticky mats, and anti-microbial mats can all be used to welcome employees and visitors back to your facility.

In a variety of contexts, our products are designed to ensure safety, durability, and functionality.

How Commercial Floor Mats Are Helpful

Each time someone enters your facility they bring dirt, sand, or moisture with them. These can cause havoc to your floors. The more people use your facility, the more damage they do. Protecting your flooring will make them look older and more worn over time.

Commercial Floor Mats are here to make a difference. You can catch most of the debris that is tracked into your facility if you place entrance mats outside and inside all doors. This is your first-line protection. It makes a significant difference. You can also use runners and mats to protect areas that are more frequented than the entrance mats.

Why are floor mats so important?

They clean your place. Commercial buildings or facilities have a lot more foot traffic. There are many opportunities for dirt and liquids from outside to get in. This is why floor mats are so important. They prevent as much as 80 percent of dirt and soils from getting into your building.

They are safe. Make wet areas less slippery.

They are a positive way to promote a positive image. The mats also reduce wear in high traffic areas, which will prolong the flooring’s life.
