Genoa pattern rubber doormat on tile in front of doorHave you ever heard the phrase, “being treated like a doormat?” It’s pretty much a way of saying someone is being neglected, and it’s usually taken as a negative condition. Whoever coined this phrase must not know about the utility of a front door mat! Our mats offer numerous features—aesthetic and functional—and may cause you to aspire to have doormat-like work ethic.

Our front door mat products are a great value and a long-term investment. Our home entrance mats are extremely well-made and are also offered at a reasonable price. Check out some reasons why you should grab two to three of our doormats for your home:

  1. Avoid messy cleanups: Footwear tracks nearly 85% of the dirt and moisture that enters a building or home (http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_EU/FacilitiesManagement/Maintenance/3MViewsAnd
    News/News/?PC_7_RJH9U5230G6L30I6PV8FOM3GH
    1000000_assetId=1273673524802). About ten times more dirt and moisture is tracked into a building in wet conditions. With or without the statistics, it’s apparent that dirt, moisture, and debris enter your house because you have to keep up weekly floor maintenance like sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping.

    Home entrance mats trap and collect the dirt, moisture, and debris that are on the soles of shoes because of its abrasive scraping surface. With the help of a rubber mat, less dirt and moisture travel into your home which means less mess for you to clean up!
  2. Improve indoor air quality: You know what happens with all that dirt and debris that makes its way onto your indoor floors? They make their way into the air you breathe. Dust, bacteria, and allergens, like pollen and mold spores, are invisible to the naked eye but are certainly there on the soles of your shoes considering all the locations we travel on foot.

    As mentioned previously, a front door mat will reduce the amount of dirt, moisture, and contaminants that hop aboard the soles of your shoes for free room and board in your home. The mat brushes pollutants off our feet and traps dirt and moisture on its surface. 
  3. Reduce the possibility of slipping: Chances of slipping and falling increase greatly when the floor is wet, as opposed to a dry floor. Moisture reduces a shoe’s traction with the floor; thus, you are more likely to slip. Wiping your feet on a rubber entrance mat reduces this hazard as the moisture is removed from your shoe and collected on the mat instead.

You may look at a front door mat and see it lying there, but it is actually working hard to improve your indoor air quality, reduce the risks of slipping, and preventing pollutants from entering your house. Our home entrance mats are resilient to heavy foot traffic and inclement weather conditions, rain or shine, while still offering a pleasant aesthetic for your home.
