How Long Do Commercial Entrance Mats Last in Crowded Places Like Airports and Malls?

Client often ask us how long they can expect their commercial entrance mats to last in crowded places like airports and malls.  The quick answer is: “For as long as you’ll take care of them!” 

When you’re starting off on the right foot with a high-quality, commercial-grade entrance mat, you’re setting yourself up for success.  But just like any product that performs a service or a function, the performance of that product is directly reflected in the amount of maintenance and care it receives.

It’s just like changing the oil in your car: a little bit of care (and cost) in advance saves big trouble down the road!   But don’t worry – maintaining your entrance matting is even easier than changing your oil! All it takes to keep your matting working well is regular vacuuming, and periodic deep-cleaning based on your levels of foot traffic.

Our Grizzly FX is meant for ultra-high traffic levels in busy commercial buildings, like shopping malls and airports.  While every application is different, a Grizzly FX mat typically lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 years in heavy duty service.  For example, Metropolis at Metrotown typically gets 5 years of service life from their Grizzly FX mats, and they’re the third busiest mall in Canada!

Check out our maintenance guides for more detailed information, or better yet – give us a call and ask us!  We’re happy to help!
