What Floor Mats Should I Buy: Beauty Salons and Barber Shops

While hair care professionals often worry about what’s on people’s heads, it’s also important for them to consider what’s on their floors. Floor mats and other matting products designed for barber shops, beauty salons, and other similar businesses can provide special benefits that can help hair care professionals and improve the overall appeal of the business.

Why Beauty Salons and Barber Shops Buildings Need Floor Mats

There are four important benefits that floor mats can provide to barber shops and beauty salons:

  • Comfort
  • Cleanliness
  • Floor protection
  • Identification

When you work on your feet all day, a little cushioning can make a world of difference. Prolonged periods of standing on a hard surface can cause the following ailments:

  • Bad posture
  • Joint stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Foot pressure

Standing is a big part of the job for stylists and other hair care professionals, so they need something that can provide a boost. Adding anti-fatigue salon mats reduce the amount of stress that standing places on the body, limiting the potential for injuries and fatigue and increasing productivity.

While hair care professionals may do most of their standing around salon chairs, they still need to pay attention to the entrance. Incoming customers bring more than just their hard-earned dollars into your business; regular foot traffic can track in unsightly dirt and debris. If it rains or snows, they may leave puddles that wind all the way to your salon chairs and mix with any leftover hair that’s there. A quality entrance mat can scrape off unwanted debris and absorb excess water from your customers’ shoes as they enter, keeping your place cleaner in the process. Salon mats are also easy to clean, making it simple to sweep stray hairs away in time for the next customer.

Another issue with this dirt and debris is that it can leave more than just a temporary mess. All the dirt, rocks, road salt, and other substances that your customers drag in can grind into your floors over time. This wear and tear can damage your floors and leave unsightly scratch and scuff marks. Matting products directly shield your floors from these threats, wiping them away before they can become a problem.

Finally, mats can serve as another branding tool for a business. Logo mats allow you to display your brand at every entrance and exit for your business. You can also customize these mats with different messages, welcoming customers or adding some other visual element for them to see as they walk in to your store.
