Doormats That Love Cats.

A couple of weeks ago, we did a post about mats for dog lovers. Immediately after posting it, however, a thought clawed its way into our minds: what about the cats? We could see visions of miffed cats speaking in hissy voices of a dog bias. We’d like to reassure our feline friends that we love everyone equally. To prove it, here’s a post about our range of mats for those among you who are owned by cats.

A cat is a different creature from the creature a dog is. Where dogs have all the sweaty and over-the-top enthusiasm of an entire fan club rolled into one person, cats are filled with secret worlds and mysterious spots that are off limits to outsiders. A dog says, “I am wildly happy to be here…can’t think straight…please feel free to take control of the situation.” A cat, on the other hand, can steadily stare at you till you are forced to look away abashedly, proving once and for all who is really in charge.

Our collection of cat lover mats will allow you to show your cat-love off to all who step up to your door.

Never Knowingly Used Catnip Doormat

A cat on weed is the kind of challenge that gamers face in action games. However, on this mat, the cat solemnly and innocently claims it has never had catnip…knowingly.  You will just have to take the cat’s word for it ‘cos you’ll never ever really for sure know the truth.

The Friendliness of a Welcome Doormat

Funny, witty and rude doormats have their place and we’re saying they are great fun. You have to admit, though, that it does feel good when you walk up to a doorstep—someone else’s or your own—and the doormat sends out a cheerful welcome to you.

A Welcome doormat is a great way to make guests feel appreciated and welcome even before you open the door. We’ve handpicked a few to help you get an idea.

It does not matter kind of a place you live in—a trailer, an apartment, a cottage, a boat—if it welcomes you at the end of the day, it is home. And as we all know, home is where the heart…and the doormat is. The Home is Where the Welcome Doormat.

Home is where the welcome mat is

Well cowboys and cowgirls, had your fill of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly at work? Then come on over home where you can hang up your boots for the day. This Cowboy Welcome Doormat is more than happy to welcome you home.

Cowboy Welcome Doormat

If your gorgeous house is a wholesome vanilla cake, then your warm and caring hospitality is the icing on it. And this cute little Cherry Welcome Doormat is the cherry on top.

Like to say it with flowers? Then you may find the Lavender Welcome Doormat to your liking. The delicate sprig of lavender next to the welcome sign will please those who like all things delicate and elegant.

There are people in this world who pig out on bacon…and cannot, for the love of breakfast, understand how people live without it. If you are one of them then the Bacon Welcome Doormat will meat…sorry meet with your approval.

It may be a jungle out there, but, apparently, it can be a jungle in here too.  With the Welcome to the Jungle Doormat, you have done your duty of putting up a warning signpost for your guests. If they are intrepid enough to enter in, they get to meet the animals!

Welcome to the Jungle Doormat

 

This is a good mat for those whose teenage drama queens have graduated and have found jobs in important cities.  Or for people who don’t have to answer to a boss anymore. Or for people who have finally finished paying their mortage. In other words, the Welcome to Paradise Doormat is meant to grace the doors of people who are living one hell of a happy life.

The Dog Lover’s Doormat.

Before you read the post, please answer the following questions in Yes or No:

  • You have, at least once in your life, had some furniture (mostly sofa mattresses) ripped to shreds or tiny, tiny, very tiny unrecognizable bits.
  • You have lived with someone with disgusting breath, overgrown fingernails and unshaved body hair, and you don’t think there’s anything abnormal about it.
  • You always have company at home…sometimes even when…ahem…peeing.
  • You now know that smelling other people’s butts is less of socially deviant behavior, more of a “let’s see what you ate today” thing.

If you have answered Yes to all of the above, then you are a dog’s human! And this post has been specially created for you and your furry housemates.

People who own dogs are a different breed altogether. It’s like their whole existence has now been successfully—and happily—synced with their dog’s life. As a dog owner, you pretty much know what we are talking about, don’t you?

Rubber doormats and flooring solutions for commercial and industrial spaces.

In the last two posts, we learned about the properties and benefits that make rubber such an indispensable material in flooring solutions (Read that post here). We have also looked at doormats and flooring products for domestic use that are available with cocomatsnmore (Read that post here). In this post, we will look at the uses of rubber mats and flooring products in commercial spaces.

Business and commercial premises have different needs and specifications as compared to homes. Here doormats have to serve a utilitarian function as well as convey sophistication. We have a range of products that are specially designed to handle these needs.

Mats

The most basic function of a doormat in a commercial premise is to keep dirt off the interior floors. The Entrance Guard Mat and the Entrance Fingertips Mat are great at this job. They have a surface composed of rubber fingers that scrape dirt off the soles of shoes, making them excellent bootscraper mats.

Fingertips Entrance Mat

Bombay Mats are made out of UV Polypropylene material backed by rubber. These mats come in a variety of colours and can be monogrammed.

The Trigrip Rubber Backing Mats have a nylon surface backed by rubber. They are great for places and spots where there are greater chances of liquid spills and, hence, slipping. They can even be used as a protective cover over carpets. Likewise, the Waterhog Classic Mat is skid-resistant and handy to be used in washrooms and even outdoors. The mats are made from 100% UV polypropylene fabric that will not fade in the sun and can hold up to 1.5 gallons of water per square yard. The raised rubber “water dam” border traps dirt and water, keeping them off carpets and floors where they can create an unsightly mess. The mats can also be printed with your company logo or a message as is the case with the Waterhog Impressions Mat.

If you want to personalize your mats, you may also want to look at Digiprint Rubber Backed Mats. They happen to be one of our top selling mats!

Rubber Tiles

Rubber tiles are fantastic when you want floor covering that looks elegant and yet delivers the benefits offered by rubber. The Anti-Fatigue Mats—RX Mat—Rubber Snap Tiles are a great choice for those involved in jobs that require long durations of being on the feet.

Indoor sports and athletic facilities could benefit greatly from Indoor sports and athletic facilities could benefit greatly from Jumbo Reversible Soft Floor Foam Puzzle Mats. These tile-style mats are specially designed for martial arts floor (ideal for Taekwondo and Karate) or any other workout area requiring padded flooring. They create a durable, comfortable and cushioned surface that is ideal for training.  The mats are non-toxic, lead-free, latex-free and, therefore, completely safe. Their shock absorbent and anti-fatigue properties make them ideal for martial arts, boxing, tumbling, playgrounds, water parks and schools.

Rubber Rolls

Rolled RubberPolymer bonded mats are designed to give the utmost strength, resilience and cushioning even after years of extensive use. Eco-friendly Rolled Rubber Mats are made from 100% recycled rubber. They can be used in a wide variety of ways including lining aisles/walkways, livestock trailers and miniature horse stalls.

Rubber doormats and flooring solutions for your home.

In last week’s post, you learned about rubber—its properties and uses as doormats and flooring options for your home and commercial spaces. (Read the post here). This week, we will look at the range of rubber-based doormats, tiles and flooring products available on www.cocomatsnmore.com. Materials used range from vulcanized or virgin rubber, recycled rubber, coir-rubber and synthetic fabric-rubber combinations as well as plain synthetic rubber. We love using rubber because it is safe, durable and hassle-free to use, all of which translate into numerous benefits for you as the end user. Design is not compromised on in the bargain, and the mats look elegant and stylish, adding aesthetic appeal to your home.

Let’s take a look at some rubber doormats and flooring products we have for your home.

Rubber Doormats

Doormats form an integral part of home decor. In fact, a doormat is the first thing your guests see when they visit, so a good-looking doormat can be a worthy preamble to your home. We have a range of mats on the cocomatsnmore online store. Depending on your needs and preferences, there is a wide variety of styles, sizes, shapes and designs to choose from. There’s bound to be a mat that matches your particular design sensibilities.

The Napoleon Recycled Rubber Doormat

If you are big on environment protection, then you may want to look at doormats made out of recycled rubber.  The Napoleon Recycled Rubber Doormat and the Rosemary Welcome Recycled Rubber Doormat are great examples of recycled rubber taking on a new gorgeous avatar.  You may also like the recycled rubber-coir combination mats like the Tulips Half Round Recycled Rubber Bootscraper Doormat.

 

Brigoder Rubber Back Coir Doormat

Brigoder Rubber Back Coir Doormat

The vulcanized rubber-coir combination can look surprisingly good as is evident with the Brigoder Rubber Backed Coir Doormat.

Synthetic fibers and rubber also make for a winning combination in terms of utility and durability. An example would be the versatile Waterhog Recycled Rubber Doormat.  Its high water absorption property makes it ideal for outdoor use in wet environments or for indoor use in bathrooms or kitchens, where there is a high chance of spillage. Synthetic rubber doormats such as the Flowers Weather Beater offer the benefits of ruggedness and the ability to endure even the most adverse weather conditions.

You even have the option of personalizing mats with a monogram or by printing your name on them. Take a look at the Acanthus Rubber Name Doormat and the Acanthus Border Monogram mat to get an idea.

Acanthus Rubber Name Doormat

Acanthus Rubber Name Doormat

Rubber mats also have outdoor uses. The Tire Track Recycled Rubber Doormat is immensely useful to provide grip and traction to your driveway during snow or in wet muddy conditions.

Rubber Stair Treads

Rubber stair treads make an otherwise drab staircase look all spruced up and elegant. They also protect the wood of the stairs, reducing wear and tear. If you have kids and elderly people at home, these mats with their rubber backing are skid-resistant and, therefore, safe. The Panama Filigree Rubber Backed Coir Stair Tread will give you an idea of what we are talking about.

Soft Floors

The Soft Floors tiles are made out of close cell EVA foam rubber. They are lightweight, portable, waterproof, soundproof, aerobic, shock absorbent and insulating. These tiles are a great way to cover your basement or garage floor, but can be used anywhere. They also have designed variants for children’s rooms.

We have many more options, designs and products that your home could benefit from. Look through our extensive range on www.cocomatsnmore.com

All you need to know about rubber flooring, mats and tiles.

RubberMat

 

Natural fiber mats and flooring add a certain class and elegance to your home and office floors. That’s undeniable. However, when you require elegance with durability and ease of maintenance added on, it’s best to consider rubber mats and flooring. They come with a host of qualities that make so such of sense that you may wonder why you never thought about them earlier. Let’s take a look at some of those qualities.

Pet-friendly: If you have pets at home, rubber flooring and mats are just plain pragmatic. Tough against the onslaught of paws, easy to clean and long lasting, they are one less thing your pet can chew and destroy.

Environment-friendly: Rubber mats, tiles and flooring made out of recycled tires are easy on the environment as well as your pocket.

Noise reducing: Rubber, with its sound deadening quality, reduces noise in work places, studios and gyms. It makes excellent sound-proofing material. In fact, rubber features prominently in the materials used for sound-proofing home studios.

Safe: Rubber flooring and tiles offer safety in gyms, play spaces and any area involving indoor athletics. They are shock absorbent and reduce the impact of falls and consequent injuries.

Easy to Clean: Rubber tiles and flooring are easy to clean. Mop with a mild detergent and sponge/mop, sweep with a broom or vacuum and you are good to go.

Anti-Fatigue: Rubber cushions the feet and, hence, reduces the strain caused by regular fitness and work-related physical activity. Rubber anti-fatigue mats are great for workers and staff whose job involves standing all day.

Easy to Mold: Rubber can be molded into a variety of designs, from intricate to sturdy, depending on a variety of needs.  Some companies even offer product customization options for those with a creative streak!

Durable: Rubber mats and flooring are tough and can endure more wear and tear. This makes them last longer and also makes great economic sense.

Types of Rubber
When it comes to flooring, there are three main types of rubber materials used.

Virgin Rubber
Natural rubber—new rubber tapped as latex from trees—is heated and chemically treated or vulcanized to make it easy to mold and more resilient. This is then used to create products. Vulcanized rubber is tough, long lasting and enjoys wide application in various industries. It is also used to produce rubber mats and flooring for homes and offices.

PineappledVulcanisedRubberMat

Recycled Rubber
Recycled rubber re-uses old discarded automobile tires by putting them through the de-vulcanization process. This process strips rubber of added chemicals and restores it close to its natural state. The resultant ‘crumb’ is then treated chemically and remolded into new products. The recycled rubber derived from this process is almost as durable and tough as vulcanized rubber. It can be used in most industries barring a few. It is environment-friendly, which is its most important feature. Rubber mats, tiles and flooring use a substantial amount of recycled rubber for its resilience and shock absorption properties. It is also more cost-effective, an advantage that gets directly passed down to the consumer.

recycled-doormat-hearts
Synthetic Rubber
As the name suggests, synthetic rubber is rubber that has been made synthetically. Unlike natural rubber that comes the Rubber Tree, synthetic rubber is manufactured by the polymerization of a range of petroleum-based precursors called monomers. In certain forms, this type of rubber is superior to natural rubber, offering thermal stability and compatibility with petroleum products (Wikipedia). Synthetic rubber has wide usage in various industries. Certain types of rubber tiles, mats and flooring use rubber foam and urethane because of their specific properties.

SyntheticRubberMat

Now that you have a basic understanding of rubber mats and flooring—their properties, features and advantages—you will be in a better position to gauge their effectiveness as solutions for your home and office requirements.

Don’t miss next week’s post! We will be talking about the range of rubber mats and flooring options that CocomatsNMore offers you.

A Different Kind of Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  Chances are you are already at the receiving end of societal, marketing, peer and relationship pressure to “Do Something Amazing!” If you are the sort who has mixed feelings about V-Day, in all likelihood it’s because of the mush overdose and excessive expectations. Love it or loathe it, there’s no denying Valentine’s Day its pink-letter place on the calendar.  So why not give in to the madness? Seriously, how often does a day come along when mush is actually an expectation?

Of course, that is not to say that you give in wholeheartedly (or even half-heartedly) to the way things are done—you know the balloons, candy, cards and roses. If you have an allergy to these, steer clear of them and do something different, memorable and meaningful this Valentine’s Day.

1. Gift your Valentine a new-looking you.

Has she been dropping subtle hints about the number of same-coloured shirts you have? Or has he told you that he really can’t tell you have a restyled your hair because it looks the same as the last time? Maybe this is a good time to change all that and do something different. Dapper up. Step up to style and impress your partner with some snazzy dressing. Change the way your hair looks. Give colour a shot. Better still ask your partner what they would change in your appearance. Then go on ahead and try out the suggestions for V-Day. Take risks in love!

2. Celebrate differently.

Don’t let the marketing guys railroad you into believing that you haven’t done enough if you have not blown cash buying all the V-Day tried and tested staples. Valentine’s Day is about love and that can be just as easily expressed through a gourmet meal cooked at home or a long drive that ends up in a countryside picnic. Ban the banal. Personalise your celebration by doing something that means something to the two of you.

3. Schedule in romance.

Sit your partner down and create a list of all the romantic and fun things you both want to do through the year together. It can be crazy, it can be practical…it can be anything as long as it involves the two of you.  Set a deadline of Valentine’s Day next year to get all of them done. That way the romance lasts through the year rather than just one day.

4. Get rid of jadedness.

So it’s been a long time since you’ve been married or maybe you’ve been going steady for a while. Things are…comfortable, but you wistfully think of the days when there was that spark. Well, there is only one thing to do about it: bring it back! Jog your mind back to some of the things you did when you first started out. Think of the spontaneity, the easy, light-hearted fun, the risk-taking, the creative ways of expressing your love—midnight poetry and songs under the moonlight. The spark’s not lost, just forgotten. Revive it and watch the chemistry come back into your relationship.

There are no binding rules to Valentine’s Day. The only thing for certain is that it’s all about love. That being the bottom line, you can find your own unique way of expressing it. So go ahead and have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

5 Tips for taking care of Carpet Entrance Mats

Entrance Mats are the first thing a person notices when they walk in the door. It is in your best interest to create a great first impression by keeping these carpeted entrance mats clean and maintaining its look and utility over a period of time. Here are 5 tips that will help you keep a clean entrance, improving the product life and appearance of your entrance mat.

1. Vacuum or Broom Daily :

Enhance the life of an entrance mat especially in heavy traffic areas by vacuuming or brooming daily. This will help retain its look and keep it looking clean. Furthermore, doing this when carpet surface is dry will be especially useful in retaining its appearance.

Entrance Mats2. Spot Removal Stains:

Cleaning up as spill as soon as it happens is not only useful at homes and with babies but is also a great tactic when your entrance mats are concerned. Try to absorb as much liquid as possible with the aid of any clean absorbent material. For stains that involve oil or grease try to blot until stain is removed and use dry cleaning fluid in small amounts.

3. Wet Shampooing:

When daily vacuuming and cleaning is not enough to restore the vibrant color of the entrance mats because there is a lot of embedded soil, it is recommended to do a deep clean with a shampoo. For shampooing, use any neutral synthetic detergent with tepid water (it is best to use 1/2 cup per gallon of water). Using a hand brush will also give great results. To remove suds, you can use a sponge or cloth.

For matting with excessive soil, use detergent with brushing and then follow that with rinsing with cold water until soil is removed. A floor squeegee can be used to remove excess water and then the entrance matting can be placed in an inclined position to drain dry.

In places where onsite maintenance is not available, the entrance matting can also be sent to a professional mat cleaner and be shampooed. For professional shampooing, use only a flat washing equipment, not exceeding 120F.

Entrance Mats4. Shedding of Fuzzing:

Some entrance mats will shed or fuzz but it very normal for the entrance mats.

5. Storage and Handling

When entrance mats are to stored, please roll the carpet with pile facing out and lay it flat and not crush it. Store the entrance mat in moderate temperature and in a dry place. Furthermore, if the borders on matting are broken then matting should be removed from service until the tripping hazard is repaired.

Matting must never be stored on end. That will cause the edges to curl and will void any warranty. Do not stack any materials or other matting on top of mat that is stored.

When placing the mat please make sure that the floor is clean and back of the mat is free from any debris and dirt. Frequent cleaning under the mats is also recommended

After removing the mat from its package, the entrance mat should lay flat in a warm, dry environment for several hours that allow it to relax and uncurl before placing into a service.

We hope that will all these tips you would be better able to take of your expensive commercial entrance mats and make sure they are well maintained to have a better life for these entrance mats.

Entrance Scraper Mats for Commercial Use

CocoMatsNMore often talks about the importance of doormats to enhance your doorway and protect your floors against dirt and debris. We also feature many beautiful doormats that would make a home owner rub their hands with joy! But, we find that it is not often we talk about our range of commercial entrance mats. We intend to make up on that oversight!

Entrance matting is crucial for any building. There are a couple of reasons why every business should invest in a good quality and durable entrance mat –

Cleanliness is an important and coveted factor with everyone. For example: when customers choose a restaurant, cleanliness ranks at the top for fast-food destinations. (Restaurants & Institutions, 1994). And when asked, “What’s the first thing you look at when judging cleanliness?” the most popular first response of consumers was “Floors” (42%). (CDI Research, 1991). Hence, it is practical to choose a doormat or an entrance mat that can keep your entrances clean by trapping the dirt and preventing it from tracking inside the building.

Having an entrance mat at each entrance will significantly improve the safety of your customers and employees by absorbing water/snow/grit tracked into the building. A mat like our Duranop Logo Mat not only looks great but can hold up to 5.5 liters of water per square yard.
