Are Waterhog Mats Safe For Hardwood Floors?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: December, 2021

Waterhog mats are a safe and effective mat to use on a hardwood floor - especially by a front door or in an entrance area.

Waterhog mats look great and offer a safe, protective option for hardwood. Excess moisture and damaging rug backings can both do a great amount of damage to a home elite, premier hardwood floor. Choosing a Waterhog product is one way to eliminate the potential of damage caused by either.

Greatmats is your one stop shop for the best selection of waterhog mats. It’s time to switch out any old entryway rugs with one of the top mats from Greatmats. They are among the best doormat options that money can buy and are used for scraping dirt, mud, and moisture from shoes or dog paws, preventing an unwanted mess from being brought onto your hardwood floor in your home or business. They also offer a level of safety on otherwise wet and slippery floors, helping to keep your floor clean. . .and safe.

You will find quite a variety of waterhog options at Greatmats. There are traditional mats and waterhog carpet tiles and rolls of standard and custom size options. Here are some of the most popular products:

Traditional Waterhog Mats

The Waterhog Fashion Diamond Indoor Outdoor Entrance Mat 35x46 Inches is made in the USA of 20 percent recycled rubber, and it can be used inside and outside of a home or business. It’s certified slip resistant and has a bi-level surface that effectively removes dirt and moisture from everything from the bottom of a boot to the bottom of a paw. The mat’s pile will not be crushed, as it has rubber reinforced face nubs. It also has a polypropylene fiber system that dries quickly and won’t fade or rot.




The Waterhog Fashion Indoor Outdoor Entrance Mat 35 x 142 inches is a great replacement for a space where a traditional carpet runner would go. Perfect for indoor or outdoor use in a home or office with hardwood floors, these mats feature a waffle pattern surface design that is stain and fade resistant and made of 100 percent post consumer recycled plastic bottles. It also boasts a robust, hardwood safe backing made with 20 percent recycled rubber. The mats are made in the USA and come with your choice of smooth or cleated backing.




If you prefer a traditional commercial door mat, but want the benefits of a waterhog product that can be custom designed to showcase your business, choose the Waterhog Inlay Logo Indoor Outdoor Mat 35x58 inches. This product not only captures soil and moisture with the ability to hold up to 1.5 gallons of water per square yard, but it’s also an affordable way to promote your business’s logo or an image from the Greatmats’ library of designs. Choose 19 colors for the design of each mat, and because it will never crush or fade, it’s perfect for areas with high amounts of foot traffic.


Waterhog Carpet Tiles

To be able to install a custom space with waterhog mats, the Waterhog Carpet Tile 18x18 Inch Case of 10 is a great option.
