We know its cold in the UK, so when PVC and Rubber mats are delivered they can be a bit stiff. Placing the product in room temperature location for 24hrs is often required to help them get back to normal. It will also make the mat flexible and help prevent tearing or damage when rolled out.

Whilst it is not essential to clean under the mat, you get long-term benefits by doing so. How? Over a long period of time, moisture and mildew build up in areas between and under the mat. This impacts the both the mat and the floor underneath. To extend the life of the mat, it would be ideal to mop under the mat every few weeks.
