Introducing the 3-Mat Entry System by Sanford Company: Your Shield Against Dirt and Moisture
At Sanford Company in Erie, PA, we understand the importance of maintaining clean and welcoming spaces. For over 40 years, we have provided high-quality janitorial supplies and equipment throughout the area. That’s why we’re excited to introduce you to the 3 commercial floor matting entry system, a powerful solution designed to stop dirt and moisture at your door, saving you time and money in the long run.
The Science of Clean Entryways
Did you know that a staggering 85% of dirt, dust, and moisture that find their way into a building can be effectively contained within the first 15 to 18 feet, with the right matting system? This vital statistic, reported by ISSA (The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association), underscores the significance of proper entryway matting.
Meet the Three Commercial Floor Mat Types that Make Up the System
The 3-Mat Entry System comprises three essential floor matting types, each with a unique role in safeguarding your interiors:
1. Scraper Mats: Your First Line of Defense
Scraper mats are your initial line of defense against dirt, grime, and moisture. Placed outside your building, these mats serve as a formidable barrier. Consider SuperScrape and SuperScrape Plus mats by M + A Matting, which feature surface cleats meticulously designed to scrape tough dirt and grime from shoes. The bi-level design traps dirt below foot level for optimal cleanliness. Alternatively, the Brush Hog mats, available in various colors, boast a surface engineered to filter dirt and moisture away, complete with drainable borders.
2. WaterHog Mats: The Scraper/Wiper Combo
Next in the lineup, WaterHog mats serve as a dynamic scraper/wiper combo. Whether situated indoors or outdoors, WaterHog mats are equipped to handle the toughest entryway challenges. These mats share the bi-level surface construction of scraper mats, effectively removing and trapping dirt below foot level. What sets them apart is the ingenious water dam border, capable of holding up to 1.5 gallons of water per square yard. The durable PET fabric ensures speedy water dissipation, making the drying process faster than standard fabrics.
3. Carpeted Mats: The Final Touch of Clean
Completing this trifecta are carpeted (wiper) mats, designed to provide the finishing touch by wiping away the last traces of dust and moisture from shoes. M+A offers a range of logo mat options, including the stylish ColorStar Impressions mats. Additionally, our solid ColorStar mats come with fade-resistant, stain-resistant, eco-friendly PET surfaces. If you’re in search of something ultra-absorbent, you can go with options like MicroLuxx or Plush.
The Cost of Neglect
It’s important to recognize the cost implications of neglecting entryway cleanliness. ISSA reported that removing a single pound of dirt from a building can exceed a staggering $600. Moreover, according to Cleaning & Maintenance Management, every dollar spent on keeping soil out of your building can save up to ten dollars required for its removal once it’s inside.
