This ‘how to clean entrance matting’ guide has been compiled to assist COBA’s customers in developing an effective cleaning and maintenance programme for their various entrance mat systems and doormats. Installation methods vary according to the entrance matting choice, but will either be fitted in recessed mat-wells or laid to the floor surface, as a conventional loose floor mat.
Entrance matting is an investment in interior floor covering protection and very importantly, underfoot safety – even in dry dust/debris situations.
Selecting the right matting for specific entrance areas is imperative for effective scraping/ wiping benefits and durability. This is where evaluating not only the primary purpose of the matting (ie scraping or moisture wiping) but also the levels of footfall is essential for assessing whether entrance matting is suitable for Light, Medium or Heavy Duty use. With the right matting in place, a well planned strategy for regular mat cleaning/maintenance is essential for optimum performance, product lifespan and return on investment.
