5 Good Reasons for Using a Garage Floor Mat in the Winter
Winter can be hard on garage floors. Garage floor mats provide an easy and affordable solution to the damage caused by salt and deicers used on icy roads. There are many other benefits to using a garage floor mat during the winter including reducing slip risks, minimizing the mess tracked into your home and providing insulation from cold concrete.
Salt and deicing fluids are hard on concrete garage floors. They cause unsightly stains and, over time, can result in pitting of the concrete. A garage floor mat is an easy way to protect your garage floor from this type of damage. Snow blowers, snow blades and shovels used on your driveway can pick up salt and deicers too. For complete protection, go with a garage floor mat that covers your entire garage floor.
Concrete by nature is a smooth surface. Add a little moisture and it becomes a slip hazard. Use an absorbent garage floor mat in winter to soak up melting snow and reduce the risk of slips and falls.
Snowy, slushy roads are an accepted side effect of winter. Unfortunately, what ends up in your garage ultimately ends up in your house. A garage floor mat can help reduce the mess tracked into your home. An absorbent garage floor mat helps to remove dirt and moisture from the bottom of your feet before it gets tracked inside.
Concrete is cold on the feet. Whether you’re working in your garage or making the occasional stocking-footed trip to take out the garbage, a garage floor mat helps to insulate your feet from cold concrete.
Garage floor mats offer an affordable alternative to protecting your garage floor. AND, installation couldn’t be easier – simply roll out. Although using a garage floor mat year-round is recommended, another benefit of a garage floor mat is that it can be rolled up and easily stored when not in use.
