So, Spring is the season for cleaning and that is exactly what I spent this last weekend doing. In particular, it was my garage that received the bulk of my attention. As it has been many a moon since I have ventured into the spooky depths my garage, I figured that now was the time. So with plenty of help and some elbow grease my friends and I liberated my parking domicile.
Now the question remained on what to do with this space (now that I actually had some). So we designated a space for the cars and found just enough room for the tools and hobby enthusiast areas. But with all this I decided that some a new floor was needed. I wasn’t sure if I should use interlocking rubber floor tiles which I know would be perfect for a home gym or rolled rubber flooring. I eventually decided to go with new industrial rubber flooring was needed. So we measured, checked twice, and thrice and laid in some nice new eco friendly rolled rubber flooring in the entire garage.
With the durability of this rubber flooring you can roll and park cars, store anything and practically everything on it. It also made a fantastic area for a little weight bench and bike and hobby area. It is much more comfortable to stand on for long periods than concrete for sure. Installation was a quick and easy process, especially seeing as though it was in my garage. We just rolled them in and used our seam sealant to put everything together and I had a brand new garage floor for a great price.
Now the real work began however, putting everything back into the garage and trying to organize that in the process. Although an arduous task, we did accomplish it and I have to say that it looks fantastic. So we will see by the time this next Sprint arrives exactly how well organized my garage is. The floor will still be looking new, but whether or not I will still be able to park in that garage is a different story all together.

Did you know that tires are one of the worst and largest source of waste? They have one of the largest production volumes and is one of the most durable materials, making it almost impossible to get rid of. The plus side is that those problems also make them one of the most re-used materials. Recycled Rubber has a non-slip surface which is easy to clean and maintain and itâ€™s very resilient and huge range of uses.
Tires are often recycled for use on basketball courts,Â new shoe products, and to make a recycled rubber playground surface. We at MatsMatsMats.com have quite a few other uses. One of the recycled rubber products that we carry is our rolled rubber flooring. It comes in 4â€™ or 5â€™ widths all the way up to 100â€™ in length. This version of our rubber is the most versatile because it also comes in 4 different thicknessâ€™ and 8 different colors. Most of the people I talk to that, are interested in rolled rubber flooring, use it for gyms, garages or dog runs. In a garage or gym it really helps muffle sounds and protect the floor while hiding dirt and can give your space a clean look. It is also excellent for surfacing (or as underlayment) for areas that require resilience, sound absorption, spike resistance and/or traction.
The people that use it for dog runs or kennels, like that the rubber is not very porous so it wonâ€™t absorb water or urine. Itâ€™s durable enough to withstand dog nails but has just enough give to protect the dogs joints when they lay down or run.
Our Tuff-n-Easy interlocking tiles are another great recycled rubber product. They come in 28.5â€x28.5â€ square which easily (and seamlessly) interlock, allowing you to create smaller or odd shaped areas. These tiles are also popular in garages and dog runs because, if one were to be damaged, it can easily be removed and replaced. I personally want to use these interlocking rubber floor tiles in my flower beds. My dogs love laying in the dirt and in always ends up in my house. All I would have to do is drill a few holes for water drainage. That would solve my mud problem!

Allow myself to introduceâ€¦myself.Â Iâ€™m Stag, the most recent addition to the â€˜matstasticâ€™ world of MatsMatsMats.com.Â Over the last few weeks I have been introduced and educated on the very wide variety of playground mats, yoga mats, entrance mats and all kinds of mats and other products that we have to offer.Â As I learn more and more about our wonderful products I find myself in an almost hyper-vigilant state of awareness.Â Almost everywhere I go I find some type of door mats or an exercise mat that we offer.
Simply visiting restaurants and markets, and walking over the entrance mats; taking a second glance downward and thinking, â€œHmmm, that looks like a Stayput Gripper Indoor Entry Matâ€.Â Or realizing that the playgrounds that I visited as a child were covered with Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles EPDM Playground Surface Tiles.Â The more that I learn our products the more I see them everywhere I frequent.Â I quite literally see mats everywhere!
So as the weeks and month progress I look forward to brining you more of my experiences, insights and follyâ€™s.Â Till then fellow travelers.

Many people don’t know exactly what flooring to put down in their exercise rooms. That’s because of the large selection and different materials that are available today.Â When doing cardio exercises our EVA foam tiles are very popular.Â They protect you joints as well as your floor.Â Mainly used without heavy equipment on them.Â They come in different thicknesses from 1/2″ to 1″ depending on the exercises and stature of the person.
When it comes to a room that is being used to put in equipment and have more of a gym feel the Tuff-n-Easy interlocking rubber floor tiles are my favorite.Â They are composed of Â rubber made from recycled tires that would otherwise be headed to the dump. They are also made here in the USA.Â They are extremely durable and when connected look like seamless rubber flooring.
Than we have our newer tiles that are made for a combination of cardio and it’s okay to have equipment set on them.Â Our soft rubber flooring has a denser foam with a layer of recycled rubber on top. These tiles are taking becoming one of the most popular picks.Â This is because they have help keep the stress away from the impact of cardio and can withstand the weight of most any exercise equipment.
If you’re still not totally sure what is best for you just call or email us.Â We have a dedicated sales and customer service team that is very knowledgeable in all the exercise flooring we sell.Â We can tell you what’s worked best for people in the past as we have great customers that give us feedback on how the tiles have worked for them or have friends who want the same product.
