The Benefits Of Made To Measure Washable Doormats

With high levels of foot traffic and constant use, traditional entrance mats can quickly become worn out and dirty through overuse. For many fixed or recessed mats, this can be an issue that needs professional cleaning and maintenance. But made-to-measure washable doormats offer numerous benefits for businesses, from durability and longevity to easy cleaning and a branded, welcoming appearance. This article explores what made-to-measure washable doormats are and why you should use them to help your business make a great first impression.

What are made-to-measure washable doormats?

Unlike many traditional entrance mats, made-to-measure mats are specifically designed and made to a specific size to fit your bespoke business needs. As the name suggests, these mats are cut to size and can even be fully customised with your business logo, branding, or product message, making them a perfect fit for your entranceway – in every way.

One of the biggest advantages of made-to-measure washable doormats is their durability. They're designed to withstand high foot traffic in any entranceway, absorb moisture, and ensure dirt and debris don't make it onto your clean tiled floors. And because they can do this so effectively, they're fully machine washable.

Made-to-measure washable doormats also offer another benefit, and that’s their appearance. Because they add a professional touch to your entranceway, they make a statement that you care about the presentation and public image of your business. Plus, because they're fully washable, they'll always look their best, no matter how well-used they become. 

Why use made-to-measure washable doormats?

When choosing an entrance mat for your business, it's important to carefully consider all of your options. And made-to-measure washable doormats are one option that's gaining popularity among businesses, from offices and hotels to hospitals and shopping centres and stores. In fact, this type of doormat is a game-changer for many businesses. 

Not only are these mats fully customisable to fit your business needs, with full logo and brand colours, but they’ll also suit the location they’re in and effectively deal with any incoming moisture, dirt, and debris underfoot. But they also offer numerous benefits that traditional mats simply can't match. This section will explore why you should use made-to-measure washable doormats in your business.

A custom fit for your entranceway

One of the main and most obvious advantages of made-to-measure doormats is their ability to be customised to fit the entrance of your business perfectly. A good first impression is so important to visitors, and a custom mat that’s totally made-to-measure and cut to the exact size and shape you need will give a seamless finish that enhances the functionality and aesthetics of the mat.

Plus, there’s no risk of any more buckled and ineffective mats posing a trip hazard because they don't fit properly. So if you have an irregularly shaped or sized doorway, you’re guaranteed a perfect fit that looks professional and welcoming. 

Low maintenance and easy to clean

Made-to-measure washable doormats are designed to be easy to clean. If they’re small enough, you can run the vacuum cleaner over them to remove any loose dirt and debris and put them in a standard washing machine (up to 50º) to come out looking as good as new. This is a great advantage if your business has high foot traffic and you must keep your doorway or entrance clean and presentable.

For larger mats that won't fit into a domestic washing machine, you can have them professionally machine washed, but you can also easily clean them yourself. After a quick vacuum, you can either use a sponge for spot cleaning with a mild detergent to remove deeper mud or dirt, brush and hose them down, or use a Vax-style carpet or rug cleaner. Remember, never use bleach and wait for the rug to be completely dry before using it again.

Long-lasting durability in high-footfall areas

A lot of high-traffic footfall through your doors can take its toll on entrance mats, causing them to wear out and become unsightly. So if you’re looking for a tough, durable, and long-lasting entrance mat, washable doormats are exactly what you need. 

This type of mat is built to last and purpose-made to withstand high foot traffic, even in the busiest of entrances, and handle whatever dirt or wet is walked in across it, day after day, making them an exceptionally cost-effective purchase. With made-to-measure washable doormats, you can be confident your entrances will look great and stay safe for your customers and visitors.

Customisable and versatile design options

The appearance of your business foyer or entranceway can greatly impact how your customers perceive and identify with your business. Made-to-measure washable doormats offer a range of versatile and customisable design options, allowing you to create a professional and welcoming look that reflects your business brand and values. 

With logo and branded washable door mats, your choice can provide plenty of opportunities for design to showcase your business identity. Logos, straplines, and product information can all be added in various colours to create a lasting impression on every customer or visitor when they arrive and leave your building.

Improved safety and hygiene for your business

Maintaining a safe and hygienic environment is essential for any business, especially when health and safety are significant issues in any public space or workplace. And washable doormats can help improve the safety and hygiene of your entranceway. Designed to trap dirt, moisture, and other debris from shoes, entrance mats prevent them from being tracked inside your business, reducing the risk of slips, trips, and falls.

And because these doormats are washable, regular cleaning will go a long way towards preventing the growth of bacteria, mould, and other harmful microorganisms. This will reduce the spread of germs or viruses and eliminate smells to create a healthier environment for your customers and employees.
