Mat service consists of a weekly, fortnightly or monthly
lift and lay of your dirty mats for clean ones, depending
on your requirements. All our mats are laundered in a state
of the art laundry where they are warm washed at 46 degrees
centigrade to ensure the mats are bacterially clean and
the pile of the mat restored to optimum efficiency.
you not vacuum a mat?" is a question we are often asked.
The answer is only to a certain degree. The average domestic
vacuum cleaners are, on average, only 30 % effective in
picking up dirt and soiling in the carpets. This is because
this soiling penetrates deep into the carpet pile where
it becomes inaccessible to the suction effect of the cleaner.

the dry soiling acts like a jagged cutting tool to damage
the carpet fibres every time it is trodden in. Its microscopic
make up also allows it to be swept into the atmosphere where
it swirls and settles on high surfaces, leading to further

or bacteria by vacuuming; you cannot with mats. The most
effective way to clean a mat is to launder it - which is
where Rathbone Cleaning comes in.

scuffs, dulls and eventually damages floors.
our mats are made in state of the art factories under rigorous
quality control to ensure that mats offer exceptional wear
characteristics and a long life.
