Doormats are a functional product and have an important job keeping your home or business space clean from mud, dust and dirt. But do you know all the different places where a doormat could be useful in your home? The international sanitary supply association revealed that for every 1 square metre your carpet can accumulate 1 kilo of dirt in a week and this statistic doubles in wet weather. By 2020 it is estimated that there will be 28 million households, each with one or two doors which are a point where this dirt can enter the home. Doormats help to keep this at bay and we have lots of options to suit everyone.
Front and side door entrances benefit from scraper qualities which are the first line of defence for a home. They help to remove debris and mud from shoes and boots before even entering the door.
Absorbent doormats inside the door are fantastic at taking all the water off shoes and stopping muddy footprints appearing in hallways and on carpets! Most are machine washable which makes them very low maintenance to refresh and keep clean. Runners are also made from similar materials for larger areas like hallways and help to protect floors and enhance décor.
Kitchen areas and utility rooms also benefit from mats. Absorbent qualities like microfibre are perfect for utility rooms where they may encounter water. Microfibre can absorb 3 litres of water per sqm at an astonishingly fast rate! Follow the link to our website below to see a video of our Mighty Mats Super Absorbent Microfibre in action!
Anti fatigue mats are proving to be popular for kitchen areas, their cushioned surface makes standing for long periods of time more comfortable on joints. Their wipe clean surface is perfect for splashes and the digital print surface makes them the perfect product to add design to!
Do you have small feet to consider? Whether they would be pets or children I’m sure both can’t resist a play in the garden! Our larger size patio mats are perfect for when those muddy paws and feet want to run straight inside and tell you all about the fun they are having! Some customers find the larger size mats useful in kitchen areas and hallways too! It really is up to you where you want them!
