Quality Indoor and Outdoor Waterhog Mats

When seeking durable and sharp-looking interior or exterior mats for commercial use, Waterhog mats from Greatmats are a popular choice. Although these mats work best at the entrance to businesses, you may even use them in mudrooms for home use.

Some Waterhog mats are going to give you eye-catching branding opportunities for your business. Yet, they still have the durability and level of performance that you need to deliver protection for interior floors and safety for visitors.

Size and Shape Options

Waterhog mats are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes. This variety makes it easier for you to find just the right size of doormat or runner to fit the style of entrance for the building or home.

Perhaps a long runner at an outdoor installation is best, ensuring people can scrape the shoe or boot before entering the building, keeping the interior floor cleaner.

Maybe you want smaller, indoor floor mats to use at entrances, so visitors don’t slip as they walk onto the tile or slate floors in the building. Some businesses use our rugs in both locations for maximum protection.

We even have interlocking carpet tiles available in this brand, giving installers the ability to create a unique coverage size.

Material Options

Our Waterhog mats consist of polyester carpet fibers, ensuring a long-lasting design that will stand up to areas of high foot traffic and to multiple weather conditions when installed outdoors.

These are Made in the USA rugs, which means you can trust the quality of the materials in use. Having consistency in the material quality is important to ensure the mats will not have weak spots that could tear or show excessive wear when exposed to significant pedestrian traffic.

The manufacturer uses a rubber backing that gives the low profile mat a sturdy base layer. The entrance mats will not curl at the edges or develop a wrinkle that could create a tripping hazard or that could cause premature wear.

Additionally, the tacky rubber layer holds the mat in place against the subfloor without the need for tape or adhesive.

Pattern and Texture Options

This is a fashion style of entrance mat, as it is available in multiple colors and textures, depending on the model you select.

The most common color option is a darker, neutral color, such as a gray, brown, dark blue, or black. This allows the material to hide soils, meaning you don’t need to clean it as often to keep it looking great.

We even offer a style of these Waterhog mats where you can print your company logo or your family name across the top of the rug. This creates a memorable entrance piece for your home or business.

In the logo rug, the base layer is available in nearly 20 different colors. You can select a color that’s easily contrasted to the printed layer.

Waffle pattern and herringbone textures are common with these mats. This yields a rough surface texture that will naturally pull soils and moisture off the soles of shoes as people walk across them.

Common Use Options

The most common use case for these mats is to serve as an entrance mat. The mats provide a safe place for people to step as they enter a building on a wet weather day, limiting the chances of a slip and fall accident.

Homeowners may want to place the rug in a mud room where the kids will be taking off wet and muddy boots after a day of playing outside.

Because of the textured surface of the mat and the rubber backing layer, moisture and soils that come off shoes will drain to the bottom layer until evaporating. The rubber prevents the moisture from leaking through to the subfloor, protecting it.

Installation Options

Installation is a simple process with our Waterhog mats. Just select the proper size of mat to fit the entrance area and lay it flat over the subfloor or concrete. You will not use adhesive on the mats. You can pull them up for cleaning or replacement, as desired.

Some of these runners are long and narrow, which is helpful in entrance areas where you want the visitors to your business to take several steps on the runner before stepping onto the building’s main floor.

This reduces the potential of a slip when the visitor steps onto the tile or slate floor in the building. It also causes visitors to track fewer soils into the building, helping your maintenance staff.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

These are highly durable runner rugs, meaning maintenance and cleaning requirements are minimal. To clean dry soils, you only need to run a vacuum cleaner over the surface. Vacuum daily in a high traffic area or a couple of times a week in a low traffic area.

To wash the rug to remove stubborn soils, use a garden hose with a sprayer outdoors or use a carpet cleaning machine. These mats only need occasional washing. Hang the mat on a frame so it can dry naturally in the air, if needed.
