We’re now entering our 8th month of summer here in So Cal. You Easterners probably think we’re spoiled, complaining about the perfect weather, but too much of a good thing… Plus, not having regular rain really makes us unprepared. I’m not even going to discuss the fact that people out here suddenly become crippled when it comes to driving in the rain.
I exaggerate, of course, but it’s so perfect all the time that I’m not properly prepared when it does rain. I don’t own an umbrella. I seriously lack proper footwear. Thank goodness I have proper entrance mats to clean off all the gook my shoes collect! I have hardwood floor, so cleaning up is no problem. But, I HAVE HARDWOOD FLOORS!! Water and ick can’t possibly be good for it. The grains are starting to look a little darker next to my doors.
I had a customer call me the other day who was from Georgia. She said her door mats get so saturated with water, they are useless. She wanted something that would help keep moisture and dirt off her floors, but didn’t have to be hung to dry every day. I suggested our Sponge Mat, which got me thinking about my own house. They look pretty nice and actually trap up to a gallon and a half of water per square yard!
The other thing I love about indoor entrance floor mats, well this one, is the grippers on the back. I already have a problem with my furniture slipping and sliding, and it’s heavy! I think I’m going to get matching indoor entrance mats for my front and back door, which has a dog door on it and leads into my laundry room. My dogs coming in and out all day is really taking its toll on my tile. I would think since the “channels” in the Sponge Mat can trap water, it stands to reason they can trap dirt and hair and dust (instead of my grout!). If I had it my way I’d have my whole house optimized in MatsMatsMats.com stuff.
