Every entryway should have an antibacterial floor mat. Whenever someone walks in the door, they bring in dust, grime, germs and bacteria inside the house.
You may keep the house spanking clean, but the moment someone comes in from outside, they bring in germs and bacteria. A doormat acts like a shield between the polluting elements and the house, but it gets soiled and dirty too easily, and needs frequent cleaning.
An antibacterial doormat is better capable of making germs and bacteria inactive as compared to other regular doormats, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to keep it clean.
A doormat possibly gets the dirtiest, more than any other item in the house. Everything else is supposed to be clean, but a pet doormat is always going to get dirty – that’s its job!
However, without regular upkeep or washing, a doormat will be a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, spreading diseases around the house. Because the pet floor mat is the dirtiest item in the house, it is also the place where the maximum germs and bacteria reside and spread through the house.
How often should you wash an antibacterial doormat?
An antibacterial floor mat is capable of trapping and killing bacteria. In general, door mats should be cleaned every two days or so, and if they remain relatively clean, then every week. It depends on the foot traffic you get.
If you have pets or kids at home, then the floor mat needs frequent cleaning.
How to clean your antibacterial floor mat?
You can clean your antimicrobial floor mat just the way you clean any other mat. However, remember to not pour disinfectants directly on the mat, because that can damage the antibacterial properties. Wash the mat with soap and warm water, scrubbing to get rid of all the dirt.
You should also spot clean the mat if it can easily stain. Spills and stains give the mat a dirty appearance, so should be cleaned immediately.
Spot cleaning can be done with soap and water. Taking care of your floor mat gives it a long life and provides you with complete value for money. The longer the mat lasts, the longer you can go without buying another.
