Tricozzi states that we now know from a variety of surveys that standing for long periods of time on hard surfaces can cause physical fatigue.
He notes that of the many tools available to cleaning professionals, matting systems are typically some of the least understood and most undervalued.
Tricozzi adds that fortunately, more and more studies are being published that prove mats do far more than just absorb moisture on a stormy day or keep soils outside.
According to Tricozzi, mats also protect occupant health, are a key component in green cleaning and now we also know they can help improve worker productivity, all of which makes them far more valuable than many of us had thought before.
Christopher Tricozzi is vice president of sales and marketing for Crown Mats and Matting, one of the oldest and largest matting companies in the United States.
