A mat rental service can be a very handy thing for a range of personal and business uses. There are some very good companies offering mat rental, something which can be initiated in a physical store or online. You may be wondering why anyone would need such a service, or you may be trying to work out if it is exactly what you need. You might typically not see the point of renting and just purchase the mats each time. However, there are some advantages to a mat renting service.
One of the advantages is the cleaning aspect. If you are laying down your mats you will have to be paying, and spending time, to get them cleaned, often very regularly. It can be far more convenient and in the long run, even work out cheaper to have a service do this for you. Either at weekly, fortnightly or monthly intervals you could have your mats lifted and replaced with clean ones.
A good mat rental service will use high-quality equipment and strong standards to thoroughly wash the mats to ensure they are hygienically clean. And this is only thinking about basic stains. Sometimes, depending on your use, some much harder to shift problems can arise such as chewing gum, paint, or oil stains. A mat rental service will have special emulsifiers to help rid those issues.
Furthermore, cleaning mats the traditional way may not be as effective as you might have thought. Most people who do not use mat rental would use a domestic vacuum cleaner, but they are said to only be around 30% effective on average at picking up dirt. A full immersion wash which a mat rental service would offer is said to be far more effective. If you continue to allow dirt to build up due to not giving your mat a full wash, over time a lot of damp and dirt will mount up which can be walked into and then around your building.
Plus, dry soiling can cause cutting on carpets as it damages the carpet fibres each time it gets trodden in. With tiled floors, this can also cause an abrasive effect leading to dulls and scuffs and potential damage to your flooring. In turn, this can become costly. Having your floor mats cleaned often and to a high standard, not just a quick rush job with a vacuum, will save you time and money in the long run.
Another reason to consider mat rental is many companies will offer custom mats to rent, so, for example, you can have a mat made to bespoke colours, shapes and sizes or have your organisations logo printed on-or have a personal logo for a gift! If you are a part of a company and you are sorting out the cleaning of the floor mats yourself, you’ll know that it involves cleaning, then collecting, then swapping with the current mats, and it’s a repeating cycle with a mat rental service you can skip this out and staff have more time to focus directly on other tasks.
Finally, pricing will be a key consideration for your personal or business usage. But because there are a lot of companies now offering mat rental, it should not be too difficult to find a competitive quote you are pleased with. Shop around, as there may be certain deals available depending on the size of the operation.
Do the sums and work out if you will save money and time using a mat rental service as opposed to purchasing the mats outright. If the answer is ‘yes’ it will be a good idea to look online and see what company looks like it will most suit your needs.
