The best way to ensure that your standing workspace is safe is by adequately maintaining your custom anti-fatigue kitchen mats. Cleaning them is easy. All you have to do is to follow the simple steps below to ensure that your mat is free of dirt and oil.
1. Use hot water mixed with mild soap
You might want to clean the surface with a mild soap mixed with hot water to remove oil or grease trapped in its surface. Ensure that the water is higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit and should not go over 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature will help dissolve any trapped oil and grease on the mat.
2. Regularly sweep it with a broom or brush
One way of keeping your mat clean is by regularly sweeping it with either a brush or a broom. You could also hose off the dirt to remove any hard-to-reach places on its surface. However, never use a heavy brush to clean it as it can damage your rug.
3. Allow it to dry properly
You should allow it to dry properly so it would not accumulate any dirt on the floor. You have to lay it flat underneath the sun so all the water will evaporate. Ensure that it is completely dry before you start using it again.
4. Do not use a machine to clean it
Using a machine to clean your standing mat will only cause damage. It is best to use an ordinary brush and clean it with your hands.
The number of times you should clean your mat depends on where it is placed. So, clean the mat if there is a lot of foot traffic in the area. Knowing how to maintain your mat properly will ensure that it will last for years to come.
