Tips About Door Mats

In addition to the Housewares and Kitchenware supplies and products you need, with over twenty-five years of experience, Woodstock Hardware can provide you the technical expertise required to help you successfully complete your next project.  Here are a few tips about door mats:    

  • Mat all outside entrances, especially those with heavy traffic. Depending on your living situation, you may have doors to the back or side yards in addition to just the front. Make sure all have doormats. Also mat entrances to the main part of your house from messier or unfinished areas such as a basement, workshop or garage. 
  • Mat inside and outside. Having two mats gives you a second chance to catch whatever is on the bottom of shoes. 
  • Mount a boot scraper for entrances where you have a lot of mud or snow, and encourage people to use it if they accumulate heavy soil on their shoes. 
  • Absorb moisture. Indoor mats often look a little more like carpet. Choose fibers that will absorb moisture. 
  • In wet or heavy traffic areas, make sure that moisture is also contained.  Boot trays designed to hold wet or dirty boots work great inside or outside the door. 
  • Clean your mats periodically. It is possible for doormats to get so full of dirt, debris, or moisture that they no longer clean shoes very much.  Shake, vacuum, or sweep out loose debris. If the mat is fairly dry, this may be all you need to do. Spray down outdoor mats with a nozzle on a garden hose. 
  • And, here’s a few more tips for you! If you’re trying to choose the perfect outdoor mat for the cold weather months, try to avoid full-on rubber mats. Even though they are the most cost efficient, non-slip, and durable, the prolonged exposure to cold weather and the elements will cause cracking over time. And, you want your mat to last! We recommend having a cold weather and warm weather option to change out as the seasons change.
