Common Types Of Entry Mats

Entrance or entryway floor mats are installed across the doorway to trap all dirt, moisture, and debris as people walk into the house. Some people install two separate entrance mats to ensure optimal functionality. One scraper mat is installed just outside the door and a wiper mat is placed just inside the door. Other people install one entrance mat for scraping as well as wiping. High quality entrance mats can trap up to 90% of all dirt, moisture, and debris as people walk into the house. Entryway mats are usually made from tough materials like rubber, vinyl, and carpet fibers. In addition to trapping dirt, moisture, and debris, these mats also provide traction to users entering the house with wet shoes. They are designed with special traction ridges to ensure a firm grip on the floor and on the shoe so that the user does not slip and fall while walking into the house. And you can also customize your entrance mat to bear a welcoming message, to include your name, or to promote your brand. There are very many types of entrance floor mats in the market today.
