We finally got some much needed rain here in Los Angeles!Â I noticed that our office building, as well as other stores that I go to, started putting out their new water absorbing entry mats. Â No one wants to see there customers sliding around and nice entrance mats can really improve the appeal of a store, office building or your home. Â I have been to locations that have old office floor mats that you basically slip over after a couple people walk on them.Â Â
Beautify your home with our wide selection of economical welcome mats and entry doormats.Â Certain states that get more rain and snow need floor mats that can really absorb and hold in water. Â Matsmatsmats.com has a very large selection of entrance door mats that can handle areas that have little traffic to heavier duty mats that can really soak in and hold the water in the mat. Â These mats are also easy to clean and maintain.
One of our more heavy duty mats, called the Sponge mat, can hold up to 1.5 gallons of water per square yard!Â It also has rubber grippers on the underside to minimize slippage.Â No matter what look, style or size you may need matsmatsmats.com will have it! Â We can even customize mats to fit your area.Â So when youâ€™re ready to improve the look and keep people from tacking water, dirt and snow all over the place, take a look at our large selection ofÂ commercial outdoor entrance mats.

I’ve got a bad, bad headache today.Â I mean really bad.Â You know why?Â Because I recently became a father.Â It wasn’t planned really.Â I just got caught up in the moment of my girlfriend moving in and before you know it… I agreedÂ that I would help her take her CAT,Â Bobby!
Bobby, at least for now, is just like a newborn
son.Â Constant liter changes, 4 hours sleep cycles, and nothing but noise come 2:30am. This has made it considerably hard to keep it together after anÂ eight and a halfÂ hour workday then coming home him while he gets adjusted to his new home.Â Lots of clawing.Â Lots of spraying.Â It’s not so much the meowing or the constant roiling of cat liter at night, but the continuous scratching sounds of this fine, young feline specimen using our very nice rug (a gift from my mother) as a if he were kneading pizza dough has to stop!Â My girlfriend suddenly got the bright idea that since I work at MatsMatsMats.com, there HAS to be some kind of ‘cat rug’.Â Something that he can scratch into all he wants, but won’t completely destroy as he’s on his way to doing with our nice plush rug.Â Little does she know, we’ve yet to truly tap into the pet market.
The headache persists, and as I thought of what to convey to all you fine people in the blogosphere, I found myself taking twelve aspirin and then it happened…Â a moment of clarity.Â I scurried over to our Maxima Mat samples (typically used as entry floor mats
or door mats
) .Â All of a sudden, I found a durable mat with no ‘loose’ fibers that a cat would have a hard time ripping through. This mat will be put to the test this weekend and we shall see how well it holds up against this adorable ball of orange-white animal anxiety.Â Obviously, a product that is traditionally used as entrance mats
isn’t spray-proof (if you own a male cat, you know…), but it is made of 45 oz. extra coarse polypropylene fibers that can scrape the smart off a string-theorist (file under poorly executed astrophysics jokes).
I’m confident itÂ will hold up against the rage of a cat removed from his home of 6 years and into the abyss that is the recording studio/love shack/pin-pong death-arena that is ‘Casa de Benigno’.Â More as it develops.

I just moved into a new home and feel very lucky that I work for a company that sells, among other things, home doorÂ mats.Â We needed a front door mat and also a mat for the back door.Â I forgot how important these mats were until I noticed how much dirt was being tracked inside our new house.Â I thought about going to Costco or something to get a mat, but I didn’t want to settle on just anything, so I spent some time to look throughÂ the huge selection of entrance mats we have at MatsMatsMats.com.Â
I decided to go off a customers recommendation whom I had recently spoken to.Â She bought a couple different patterns of our CleanScrape Mats.Â She had a friend that had bought our mats and they told her how excellent they were holding up.Â So I sat down and picked out a couple different CleanScrape styles and sizes I liked.Â Â I received them atÂ my houseÂ about a week ago… delivered to my “front door.”Â They look awesome.Â Being in our early 30′s we play all kinds of sports and get plenty dirty.Â We got the Celtic Lattice matÂ for our back door so any water can drain all the way through as it is not a covered area.Â For the front we purchased the Welcome Iron mat.Â Â We were able to getÂ them in matching coffee colors.
People have different tastes (styles, colors, etc.) and different needs (sizes, quantities, etc.), but whatever your needs are I’m sure MatsMatsMats.com will have what your looking for… and if not, they can always makeÂ custom door mats (custom sizes or custom logo door mats) to fit your needs.Â So, whether you’re moving into a new house or apartment – like me – or just need to replace your existing door mats, it might behove you to check out the selection of mats offered by MatsMatsMats.com.Â They also offer a huge selection of quality commercial and industrial mats for the workplace, so keep that in mind too!

Logo door mats are ideal for any place of business.Â Whether you are a restaurant owner, the owner of a retail store or a hair salon you will undoubtedly purchase a door mat for the entry of your establishment.Â So, why notÂ letÂ entry mats do a little advertising for you too?Â
There are many different options when it comes to custom logo mats.Â The mats that are designed exclusively for outdoor use are typically made entirely of rubber.Â Generally your color options and logo design options are very limited on these types of entrance mats.Â There are usually limited sizes available as well.
That being said, most businesses purchase entrance mats that are placed on the inside of the entry.Â The logo mats for this use is typically a vinyl or rubber backed mat with a carpeted to surface (rubber backing being preferred due to better durability).Â Most manufacturers of these types of mats are able to produce the logo in virtually any colors and almost any design.Â The mats can be a combination of colors and a large selection of mat sizes (and even custom sizes) are available.
A minimum quantity of mats is not required â€“ you can order a single logo mat.Â The mats are generally a very inexpensive way to protect the floors at your entrance, prevent excess dirt and debris from entering your establishment and market your business at the same time.

I think, very soon, I willâ€”admittedlyâ€”for the first time, will buy some decorative door mats and a nice kitchen mat for our home.Â But not just yet.Â Why?Â Wellâ€¦right now we donâ€™t have a kitchen in our home.Â No, really.Â The walls are mostly exposed.Â The sink is gone [thank goodness with new plumbing], no cabinets, weâ€™re down to sub-flooring, and weâ€™re waiting on a guy to come finish framing out the back wall for the sliding glass door that put our entire project on hold for nearly two weeks. Everything revolves around that sliding door being installed: the flooring, the cabinets, the sinkâ€¦everything but the texture on the walls.
Now, in case youâ€™re saying to yourself, â€œHe doesnâ€™t have to wait for the kitchen to be done to buy a couple of entrance mats to help keep the dirt out of his house as he and workers traipse in and out,â€ and youâ€™d be right; I just want the mats to serve as some sort of â€œclosureâ€ on the whole remodeling ordeal.Â Maybe Iâ€™ll just buy some plain, inexpensive door mats and replace them with the decorative kind later.

Have you ever bought one of those two-sided rolls of 4â€ wide masking tape designed for removing lint from your clothing, or for whatever purpose double-sided tape can be used? I LOVE those things! Well, what if you could have something like that for your shoes, or for the shoes of visitors to your home or work place that requires dirt and other contaminants not be tracked into a certain area? Sticky, or tacky mats are among the greatest of inventions in the world of commercial or industrial trade show flooring products.
These pads of sticky, two-sided mats are fantastic for capturing grime that invariably clings to the bottoms of our shoes. The pads of sticky mats come in a wide variety of dimensions, from 18â€ x 36â€ up to 36â€ x 46â€ [with several sizes in between], and peel off just like those rolls of lint tape you use on your clothes. These would be a great â€œpost matâ€ to put down, just after visitors step onto your entrance mats, which will catch heavier grime and moisture.

Are you looking for durable, luxury, indoor carpet mats to protect interior floors? Most people naturally think of welcome mats or outdoor entrance mats for walkways and front porches; but what about something for just inside the doorway, or even a breezeway, for when people are in a hurry to get out of the rain, sleet, or snow, and they donâ€™t take enough time to wipe their feet on your decorative welcome mat?
Then, once inside, they apologize for getting your floors all wet and/or muddy, and you keep thinking, â€œBoyâ€¦we sure need some mats for just inside the door for people to clean their feet off!â€ Itâ€™s at times like those you realize you have no one to blame but yourself for not putting down some good entrance mats to catch not only the water and grime, but also to protect your own liability against falls due to slippery floors.

Most of todayâ€™s outdoor entrance mats are made from 100% durable, recycled rubber, and have either a carpet top surfaceâ€”or something similarâ€”that is designed to catch grime and dust. If youâ€™re not looking for a decorative door mat, but something more conservative, the rib pattern door mat [pictured] is always an excellent choice, with a durable vinyl backing, and are more economically priced if your budget canâ€™t handle something â€œhigher endâ€ and yet you need to â€œcover your tracksâ€ in regards to providing mats for people to wipe their feet on.
And then, once your budget increases, you might want to consider something such as the ever popular CleanScrapeTM outdoor entrance mats, which are much heavier duty, UV resistant, meaning they wonâ€™t fade in sunlight, and the most aggressive entrance mats on the market, made with an eco-friendly, recycled rubber base.

Durable entry door mats like the one shown here are made with a unique â€œclean scrapeâ€ surface that is designed to especially clean shoes, absorb water, and still remain tough, resistant to sun fading, and general wear and tear from traffic and dirt. These rugged door mats are made with 100% recycled rubber backing.
And, if your desires are for genuine, eco-friendly products, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor entrance mats made of recycled rubber in either conservative profiles, industrial appeal, decorative welcome mats, and many other styles, sizes, and purposes. So no matter your need, circumstance, or vocation; thereâ€™s never a shortage of choices when it comes to entry door mats.

Decorative welcome mats arenâ€™t appropriate for most commercial settings. Maybe youâ€™re a commercial professional developer who has just built a nice facility to serve as your model office space, and you want to make a nice presentation. Are home-style door mats going to be the appropriate choice for your situation? Wellâ€¦not likely; not if you want to make an impression of professionalism that doesnâ€™t smack of real estate agent, when youâ€™re dealing with a different group of professionals.
Thank goodness, then, there are tough, sharp-looking, commercial entrance mats that will provide nice footing to every entryway, will pick up impurities on peopleâ€™s feet, and will even be suitable to place in your breezeway, and just inside the door, before visitors and employees step onto, perhaps, nice, hardwood floors.
