A Different Kind of Flooring
Foam sports mats and flooring are a must for anyone that participates in activities such as gymnastics, wrestling or martial arts. The soft surface allows the body to be cushioned from the impact as well as a rough surface. You’ll also find these, at times, within laundry and utility rooms. Warm, moist environments that may cause equipment to get wet provide favorable conditions for stain-causing bacteria. Muddy, damp equipment quickly becomes stinky equipment.
Foam flooring should be swept frequently with a broom to keep dirt and debris from making a home within the crevices of the product. Since most foam floors have very tight seams, you can mop them for a more thorough clean from time to time or as spills occur. Just be sure to wring out your mop as much as possible to avoid puddles of liquid that could still sneak into those seams. Wipe the floors with a dry cloth when finished mopping.
While disinfectant chemicals like bleach and peroxide will disinfect your foam floor, they may discolor or degrade the foam. One good option is using flooring infused with amounts of zinc. Zinc Pyrithione, the active ingredient in zinc technology, is commonly and effectively used in items such as dandruff shampoo and footwear. Foam flooring with zinc antimicrobial technology works for you around the clock, helping to keep your flooring cleaner for the life of the product.
