Floor Mat Service Programs

Yes, a nice clean mat presents a wonderful first impression of your facility but did you ever think of mats as a cost-saving or safety measure? Well, they are. Here are a few "dirty facts" about your floors:

  1. 39% of custodial time is spent on floor care and 85% of dirt gets trapped within a 15-foot length of typical matting.
  2. $1 spent keeping soil out of a building will save $10 in removing the soil once it's inside.
  3. The estimated cost to remove a single pound of dirt can exceed $600.
  4. The average cost of a slip-related injury exceeds $12,000. The average cost to defend a slip-and-fall lawsuit is $50,000.
  5. Productivity drops by 33% for a person standing 8 hours on a concrete floor. Standing on anti-fatigue matting increases productivity by 20-50%.

A Plymate mat program begins with a careful analysis of your facility to determine the right mat combination for you and the right frequency of service. Our larger, heavier mats can often replace a number of smaller mats, eliminating the safety and appearance concerns where mats run together. Using the right mat at the right place is an essential part of creating a safe, clean, and attractive workspace.
