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.

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

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.

When a customer enters a business they get a first impression from what they see, but also what whether the place of business does not have any unpleasant odours. In the cooler months doors and windows are closed and very little "fresh" air can circulate.
Swan Dust Control has a solution. Keep a nice, fresh fragrance in the air with our automatic air freshener for restrooms, or any room that may need some freshening. The air freshener works as a room deodorizer as well as an odor control product. There are many fragrances to choose from. We provide the unit and replenish the fragrance.
Hand Washing and anti-bacterial gel help t keep sickness away
This time of year viruses and bugs are spread indoors by touching phones, door handles and many other objects, becasue without being aware, we often touch our face, and we transfer these unknowingly. Washing your hands often with soap and water is important as a first line of defence, however there are times hand washing is just not convenient.

Let me count the ways....Seriously though there are many reasons and I will cover a few of them here.
Your business is important to you, and you want to create a positive first impression when customers enter your business, and see a clean dry surface.
A clean, dry floor is a safe floor to walk and stand on. Swan's mats are very absorbent so rain, snow and slush are in the mat, not creating a slip and fall hazard on your floors
The mats protect your floors, capturing dirt, salt and water that will damage the floor.
Rubber backing on the mat keeps it from slipping on the floor. As a business owner you are taking a precaution against accidents, should a slip and fall accident occur on a wet floor without a mat.
You and your employees can focus on serving the customer, and let Swan remove dirty mats and replace them with clean. No mat cleaning needed for you or your employees.
Our sales professionals can come to your business and provide a no obligation, free quote. Every two weeks our customer service represetnatives come to your business to remove the dirty mats and replace them. It's that simple. Contact us today.
