Professional Commercial Mats vs. Household Mats

commercial mats

Having the right mats for your business is a matter of safety. Mats play an integral role in maintaining your business’s look, your customers’ safety, and your floor’s longevity. Using the right ones play a large role in your effort’s effectiveness. 

But, with so many mats to choose from, what’s the best option? You might be tempted to purchase household mats, but will they really get the job done? 

Here are some differences between household mats and a professional mat service through a company like Golden West Betterway:

Mat Sizing Options

There is no one-size-fits-all option for every business. There isn’t even one for all of your business’s needs! A home supply store will have three, maybe four sizes of mats that you can choose from, and most will be too small to do the job. Using the wrong sized mats or buying multiple and piecing them together looks unprofessional and isn’t functional.  

A professional mat supplier like Golden West Betterway has the sizing and customization services that will fulfill your mat needs. 

Mat Variety for Better Functionality

Household mats have a handful of versions whose only real difference is look and feel. The functional difference between a kitchen mat and a welcome mat is abrasiveness, but not much else. Trying to satisfy all your business’s mat needs with that “variety” is more an exercise in creativity than effective preparation. 

Your mat needs are as various as the tasks that your business requires. Golden West Betterway has a variety of mats to improve the function, look, and comfort of your workplace.

Here are some of the mats that we offer: 

Carpet Décor Mats

Our carpet décor mats do more than just look great. Their length and rubber backing make them ideal additions to your business for a variety of applications. Put them under buffets, self-service stations, line-up areas, or service counters. Wherever people will be standing is a great place for a Golden West carpet décor mat! 

Carpet Décor Logo Mats

Carpet décor logo mats offer the same protection and utility as our regular carpet décor mats, but with a personal splash. Mats that are personalized with your business’s logo get attention where you want it. They do this while providing all the protection and safety that you need! 

Anti-Fatigue Mats

Our line of anti-fatigue mats offers unparalleled protection, safety, and comfort to employees who need it the most. Positions that require hours-long standing are tough on the lower body’s muscles and joints. An anti-fatigue mat cushions that standing area and lessens that impact. That means your employees feel better, have more energy, and can do a better job! 

Kitchen Mats

For the area of your business that needs protection the most, Golden West offers top-of-the-line kitchen mats. No matter what’s spilled, these mats are up for the task, all while providing comfort and support. 

Message Mats

If you’ve got something to say in a particular area of your business, message mats are a powerful way to do it. Whether it’s a customized welcome mat or a “use caution here” mat, we can get the message across. 

Cleanliness and Upkeep Taken Care of

Though the size and variety of mats available is a powerful reason to go with Golden West Betterway, perhaps the greatest reason is in the care we provide them. Mats are only as good as their cleanliness and physical properties allow them to be. When they are used and aged, they become less effective as they fill with dirt and wear down. Without proper, professional upkeep, no mat can last.

That’s why Golden West Betterway is the ultimate option for your business’s mat service. We have the professional mats and the knowledge and expertise to keep them fully functional. Household mats will cost you in the end. Go with the better choice.
