Why use indoor door mats?


According to studies by ISSA (the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association), about 80% of the contaminants found in most buildings are carried into the facility on people’s shoes. This includes water, dust and debris, all the things that we’d rather leave outside. Indoor door mats help by capturing this dirt and water, keeping floors cleaner for longer and reducing the need to clean them as frequently compared to using outdoor door mats alone.


The problems with most traditional door mats that are commonly found outdoors are;


Materials

Mats that are found outdoors are often made from non-absorbent materials which are great for scraping dirt from feet but don’t take away moisture. Using an indoor mat, especially one with natural Cotton fibres, will help to soak up water from shoes preventing it from being carried around the building and creating a slip hazard.


Size

A door mat of any kind needs to be stepped on with both feet several times, otherwise it just won’t be able to have the desired effects. Unless people stop to wipe their feet, the chances are that an outdoor mat isn’t going to work as well as needed.

How to choose the right indoor door mat


There are many options available and choosing the right mat for you can seem to be quite difficult, but if you consider how each of these features affects you then it’ll be easier to choose the best mats for your needs.


Mat Size 

As mentioned before, the size of the mat is an important part of its effectiveness. The more times a visitor steps on the mat, the more dirt and water it can capture, so use the largest mat possible within the space you have available. Several of our indoor door mats are available in custom lengths, allowing you to create a long runner mat in any length you need.


Crush Resistance

What type of environment your indoor door mats will be used in. Is it a low traffic area such as a home? A medium traffic area like an office or a very high traffic area such as schools, airports and supermarkets? Our indoor mats are made with varying materials and thicknesses, so it is important to choose one that is suitable for its environment. To make this easier for you, the “Crush Resistance” icons show a rating between 1 and 3 stars to indicate a mat’s suitability. You can also use the filters on this page to display only the indoor mats with the highest crush resistance ratings.


Mat Height/Profile

Our indoor door mats have a different range of heights or profiles. A thicker mat will generally be better for durability and water absorbency, but the thickest ones may be difficult for wheelchair users or create a trip hazard in busier environments so, if used in a public area, check the height of the mats to see if they will be suitable.

We do also offer a range of fitted mat well mats which are sunk into the ground, creating a flush finish with the surrounding floors. Whilst most of these are for commercial environments, domestic options such as coir matting are also available. See our range of matwell mats here.


Door Mat Backing

Generally speaking indoor door mats will have two types of backing, natural rubber backing or synthetic backings such as PVC, Nylon or Vinyl. The Natural Rubber backed door mats tend to be a bit more expensive than their synthetic counterparts, but their heavier weight helps to improve their grip on the floor, reducing the slip risk, and they are more durable so you can expect a longer lifespan.


Door Mat Colours

The indoor door mats are available in over 20 colours, so finding one to suit its surroundings shouldn’t be too difficult. Either choose a bright, vibrant colour to make an impact or a subtler charcoal or grey to blend in with the décor. The most popular colour choices for door mats are darker ones, such as black, as these are better at hiding dirt than lighter colours. Some of the mats in our range, such as the Plush Choice, have a mottled pattern which is designed to camouflage dirt that the mat has captured.


Other types of Indoor Mats


Our indoor door mats can be used in almost and environment, whether it be in a commercial or domestic setting, but for businesses we also offer Logo Mats. With one of our indoor logo mats, any business can proudly display their logo on a high-definition mat which will impress visitors at the entrance whilst helping to keep the surrounding floors clean. We offer a range of indoor logo mats which all feature nitrile rubber backings, high definition printing quality and durability making them an excellent addition to any business entrance.


Coir Matting is another type of mat commonly used indoors. These are made from natural coconut fibres and form a bristly texture, similar to a sweeping brush. They are commonly found in older homes and buildings including pubs and restaurants, as they create a more traditional and homely appearance. Our coir matting features a PVC backing, so should be used indoors only.


How to Clean your Indoor Door Mat


For door mats of any kind to remain effective, they need to be kept well maintained. Regular cleaning of your mats will help them to capture more dirt and water as well as increasing their potential life span. The frequency of cleans will depend entirely on the traffic and conditions outside, especially in the wetter seasons.


Some of the indoor door mats can be cleaned in a washing machine, just bear in mind the size of the mat as 60cm x 90cm mats are the largest recommended for domestic washing machines.


For all other mats, simply vacuuming over them when dry will remove most of the dirt and debris including dry mud.
