Another benefit of indoor mats is that they are also being used to help prevent slips, trips and falls in high risk areas.

No matter where you place our indoor mats, they have the power to prevent slips and falls and to prevent your floors from dirt, dust and water.
Choosing the right sized Indoor Mat
Its important to have the right size mat for your application. For example, if you are using the mat as an entrance mat, it needs to be large enough for visitor to take multiple steps on the mat, to effectively remove dirt and water from footwear. As we know visitors and customers don’t tend to wipe their feet! If you are using an indoor mat for a spillage area, it needs to be large enough to catch and splashes and soak up the required liquid. We have runner floor mats for longer areas like corridors, and some of our mats can even be made in custom sizes to suit your requirements.
Coloured Indoor Mats
For aesthetic purposes, we offer a variety of different colours in our Indoor Mat range. This allows you to choose the perfect mat that compliments your décor. Our Tri Grip Heavy Duty is available in a choice of 12 different colours. If you’d like something more unique, check out our Solid Colour Mats.
Types of Indoor Mats
Indoor Mats have a number of different uses or applications, which means there are different types of indoor mat to suit each individual placement.
Dust Control Indoor Mats – An indoor mat that is used to collect finer dirt and dust from inside your premises, to keep your carpets and floors looking clean and presentable. Specialist dust control mats can be used for more sensitive areas such as labs, health facilities, sports halls and computer rooms.
Floor Protection Indoor Mats – Used to protect flooring from damage, whether it be your carpets or hard floors. Indoor floor protector mats are best placed in areas of high foot traffic, such as near entrances, reception areas, vending machines, underneath chairs and desks.
Indoor Logo Mats – An indoor logo mat can serve both above purposes, as well as great a great first impression to visitors and customers. They can also used to display messages or warnings.
Indoor Runner Mats - Specifically designed for lengthier areas and prevents dirt and water from spreading inside facilities. Our favourite is the Trip Grip Heavy Duty Length Runner Mat.
How long will an Indoor Mat last and when should I replace it?
How long your indoor mat will last can depending on several factors:
- The type of backing – rubber backed mats will always be longer lasting than PVC or Vinyl.
- The amount of mat pile – look for the weight of the face fabric, the heavier the better!
- Where the mat is placed – busy entrances will require a more durable mat in order to increase the life span. Mats placed at a water cooler which isn’t used regularly could last you a lifetime!
Look out for edges that are cracked, curled or split, these are obvious signs that your mat needs replacing. Or, if you find that the mat is no longer collecting dirt because the pile is worn, this is another sign. As the mat becomes ineffective, it is no longer able to absorb as much water, or remove dirt. Therefore, it’s important to replace your mat as it could a health and safety hazard and look a bit of an eye sore.
How to prevent Indoor Floor Mats from moving
If a mat slips while in use, this could be a potential hazard and cause slip and fall accidents. To stop this issue, we recommend using our Teebaud Non-Skid/Anti-slip mat and rug underlay. This secures your mat or rug in one place and is thin enough to not be noticed while under the mat/rug. We also have a number of safety backing actions to prevent mat movement, discussed below.
Which Indoor Floor Mat backing should I choose?
Many indoor mats have two types of safety backing options, to prevent the mat from moving. We have 2 backing options catered for hard or carpeted floors.
- Flat Back option made for hard surfaces.
- Gripper Back made for carpeted surfaces.
Please note, that even with a gripper backing, mats will still move or creep on plusher carpets, so we strongly suggest you look at the Teebaud Anti-Slip Mat Underlay to almost eliminate mat movement.
How to clean your Indoor Mat
The majority of indoor mats can be cleaned in the same way that you would clean your carpets and floors. They can be simply vacuumed or use a carpet shampooer. Some mats are also machine washable. When browsing our indoor mats, make sure to view the ‘cleaning’ section underneath the product for more information.
Maintain and clean your mats regularly in order to keep your mat performing well. How often you should clean the mat depends on foot traffic and weather. You can easily tell your mat needs a clean, when it stops performing as effectively and you can see dirt appearing on the surrounding floors.
