Three Ways Rubber Flooring Tiles Wash Away Your Laundry Room Ruckus!

Washing machine and dryer on top of a Shark Tooth Rubber MatLaying down some rubber flooring tiles in your laundry room washes away many of the irksome issues that arise when you use your washer and dryer. Washing your clothes is such a routine and essential chore, yet, for many of us, it’s a nightmare.

You walk into the laundry room and almost immediately you breathe in a thick, musty odor that irritates your nose. There is a small, but growing colony of mold feeding on excess moisture pooling at an uneven corner of the room. You load up the washed clothes into the dryer, and press ‘Start.’ A deafening symphony of noises erupts: the throbbing moan of the dryer, the rattling of against the wall, and the constant tapping of the feet against the floor.

Now, you throw some clothes in the washer and start the cycle. As the water fills up the washer, you take momentary solace in the sound that likens to some imaginary waterfall-side oasis, where clothes wash themselves, and you can relax. Suddenly, the spin cycle begins and rudely interrupts your strange vision of paradise, returning you to your laundry room. The washer and dryer seem to be competing for “Loudest Appliance,” all while you stand there wondering what you can do to remedy this nightmarish ordeal.

Ok, maybe that was a bit melodramatic, but you have to agree that laundry rooms are wet, musty and, most of all, noisy. The solution is simple: Place recycled rubber tiles on your entire laundry room floor. Here are some of the benefits of rubber floor tiles:

  1. Shark Tooth rubber mat under open washing machine and loaded dryerSound reduction: Unless you soundproof your room, it’s nearly impossible to completely silence the noise in your laundry room; however, you definitely can reduce the noise. When you set up your washer and dryer on top of rubber flooring tiles, vibrations produced from the machines disperse into the rubber and, as a result, dampen irritating noise.
  2. Floor protection: Commercial rubber floor tiles act as a buffer between the washer and dryer and the floor, preventing not only the chatter of the vibrating machines but also costly damages to your laundry room floor. Rubber acts as a machine cushion, absorbing the pulsing forces of the washer and dryer. If you have a “walking” washer or dryer, recycled rubber tiles offer great traction that would prevent your washer or dryer from moving about. They are eco-friendly because they are made from recycled tires so they are also less expensive!
  3. Ease of maintenance: Rubber is naturally water-resistant, which means clean-up will be a no-brainer. The versatile characteristics of rubber allow it to act as a cushion for your machines yet still provide enough firmness for easy maintenance. For laundry rooms with uneven floors, commercial rubber floor tiles level the surface which prevents any moisture from pooling in a corner and fostering the growth of mold and mildew.

Rubber flooring tiles are easy to install and are an affordable, long-lasting investment. Our tiles are offered in a variety of colors to match your laundry room color scheme. As if handling dirty underwear wasn’t enough, doing the laundry can also be an acoustic nightmare. Lay down some recycled rubber tiles and eliminate your laundry room ruckus.
