Why Are Mats So Important During The Winter Months?

Keep Your Customers Safe From Slips and Falls This Winter

 

There are countless reasons as to why it is crucial for businesses to have proper matting on their floors during the long winter months.  This type of weather tends to make floors much more wet and slippery, which can potentially lead to unnecessary slips and falls from both customers and employees.  This is obviously, something that should be avoided at all costs as the safety of your customers should be the top priority. 

 

Floor mats can help in the following ways:

- Prevent slips and falls, and reduce the risk of liability
- Reduce daily cleaning costs by substantially minimizing tracked-in soil.  Research shows that overhead costs associated with cleaning greatly increases during the winter months. 
- Extend the lifespan of flooring surfaces
- Help maintain a great impression with your customers. 

- With Swan, your soiled mats are picked up at your location for each service cycle, and then exchanged with clean ones.  The soiled items are brought back to our plant for professional cleaning.  It’s as easy as that.

Why are Swan's Rental Mats Efficient?

What Materials Make Swan's Rental Mats Effective?  

 

The first step to ensuring your customers are safe from slips and falls is to place matting in entrances and heavy-traffic areas.  However, not just any mat will do the job right.  For instance, you don’t want to purchase mats that curl in the corners and cause customers to trip.   Our rental mats are specially manufactured with premium high quality materials to provide an outstanding performance at your facility.  Here are some of these materials:

  • Anti-skid nitrile rubber backing customized for hard floor surfaces or carpeted floors
  • Rubber backing helps prevent curling and cracking, and allows the mat to lay completely flat
  • Rubber borders facilitate transition and cart traffic
  • Cut pile yarn allows dirt to penetrate and hide in between fibers until the next service from Swan
  • Super absorbent 100% nylon cut pile carpet surface resists packing and crushing

Standing Desks and Anti-Fatigue Mats

Use A Standing Desk?  Save Your Legs With Anti-Fatigue Mats!

 

If you work in an office, I’m sure you’ve discovered how sitting for long periods can be taxing on your muscles.  Many offices are now providing standing desks as an option to try and combat this issue.  In fact, research shows that using a standing desk can improve employees’ health, mood and productivity. 

However, standing for long periods of time can also be detrimental to one’s health.  Leg muscles can become totally static and constricted as they work overtime to keep the person in an upright position.  Blood flow is also often reduced which causes pain and discomfort.  This is where anti-fatigue mats come in.  When a person stands on one of these mats, his/her muscles will subtly contract and expand as they adjust to the flexibility of the mat.  This muscle movement increases blood-flow and increases the amount of oxygen reaching the heart.  Plus, fatigue is significantly reduced.  And let’s not forget the comfortability of anti-fatigue mats!   Who wouldn’t feel happier at work when they feel more comfortable and at ease?   

To learn more about the many benefits of an anti-fatigue mat, call Swan today!

Is Spring Fever a real "thing"?

What the heck is Spring Fever, and do I have it?

 

Spring Fever is not a medical term, and not a disease or mafunction of the body, but it is recognized as something that affects many that live in northern climates. The additional sunlight and warmer tempteratures have a positive affect on mood and energy level. From the sound of the birds singing, they must have spring fever, as they begin a new cycle of life that includes mating and nesting.

People feel lighter, can tend to eat less, and have a desire to unburden themselves, often recognized as wanting to "Spring Clean". Hmm, might this be time to order those mats for your business to keep things clean, and let Swan Dust Control pick up the dirty mats and deliver clean ones?

It's Spring, so enjoy, get outdoors, take up activities like walking and golf, and enjoy Canada's wonderful parks, it's been along winter and Spring is finally here.

Save time and money by keeping dirt at the door

​Entry Mats capture dirt

 

Studies have proven that it can take up to $500 to remove 1 pound of dirt that has been tracked into your business. 

If you have an entry mat, and your customers take at least three steps on a mat, it will remove 90% of the dirt that would otherwise have been tracked into your shop. The entry mat is your first line of defence against this dirt.

Further studies have shown that 80% of the dirt that enters a business comes through the door. So place mats at all entrances, and save yourself both time and money, while preserving your floors and maintain a cleaner environment indoors.
