Ask Sadie: The Benefits of Matting Programs

A Cleaning Q&A Column  |  February 7, 2013

Q: Hey Sadie- How do I know what kind of mat(s) I need for my facility? - Steven

A: Hello Steven, Having a matting program is the best way of adding mats to a facility. Not only are mats a great way to protect your floors, especially in inclement weather, but they can add traction for feet near pools (in gyms, schools, etc.), help prevent worker fatigue where people stand all day (such as in commercial kitchens, manufacturing facilities, etc.), and many other various applications.

Often it’s best to have different types of mats that are specific to the needs of the various areas in your building or facility. For instance, one would not use an anti-fatigue mat for an entryway, as you'd want it in an area that someone would be standing all day, as opposed to people wiping their feet of debris when entering a building. And that's why having a matting program is the optimal solution.

Understanding matting terms is important to figuring out what you need...wiper mats vs. scraper mats vs. wiper/scraper mats. CleanLink.com has published an article defining various mat-related terms that often need clarifying (read below for "Ten Terms Everyone Should Know About Mats").

Ask Sadie: Treating Carpet Stains Tips & Techniques

 

Ask Sadie: A Cleaning Q&A Column  |  September 13, 2012

Q: I have coffee stains on my lobby carpet. Do you have any tips or techniques for getting rid of it? I don’t want to have to replace our carpet. 

A: Treating spills on carpets can be a tricky business, especially without knowing what type of carpet you have, as certain carpet types/coloring can react to carpet spotters. Always remember to check for colorfastness before using any carpet spotter. I am going to answer as if it’s a general spot or spill on a fairly easy to clean carpet.
