Mat Cleaning & Dust Control Services by Monarch Cleaners

Commercial “In-Plant” Mat Cleaning & Dust Control

Monarch Cleaners’ In-Plant Mat Cleaning and Dust Control Programs allow businesses to save hundreds of dollars per year on excessive cleaning costs. According to the Institute of Industrial Launderers, 70 to 80 percent of dust, grime, and dirt in a building is tracked in from the outside on people’s shoes. This excessive dirt and grime can permanently damage floors and carpets.

How Much Dirt Accumulates?

We need to take a look at the facts. One square yard of carpet can accumulate one pound of dirt in a week, and twice that amount in inclement weather. “Progressive Grocer” quotes that 91% of shoppers select a store because of its appearance.

Without entrance matting, 1500 people can remove 42% of the finish from floors. (3M)

Why Use Mats for Dust Control?

Knowing the facts, many still ask why businesses need to use mats for dust control. Bottom line, it just makes good business sense! According to the International Sanitary Supply Association, it is estimated that the cost of removing a single pound of dirt from a building will run in excess of $600 in cleaning cost. These are just some of the important reasons for mats. Not to mention the safety factors: 30 percent of worker injuries are slip related, and on average, the cost of a slip-related injury exceeds $12,000. (Wausau Insurance Co.)

Mats Are the Effective Solution

The solution to all of this is an effective mat program. Mats are the most efficient way of stopping dirt at the door and keeping building maintenance costs to a minimum. They also should be used where safety is a must and comfort is essential. Logo mats are an excellent way to promote cleanliness and safety as well as advertise your company’s image. Strategic placement of mats is essential for maximum effectiveness.
