Many homes have some type of entrance mat outside the doors of the home. These mats typically serve two purposes – they are a sign of welcome and they also serve to keep dirt and moisture out of your home. Waterhog mats are some of the most popular entrance mats in the industry and for good reason. There is a large line of Waterhog mats available, so there is sure to be a style for just about any homeowner or business owner, no matter what specific needs they may have.
Most Waterhog entrance mats can be used either indoors or outdoors, although some are sold specifically for one purpose or another. The mats are constructed from polypropylene, which results in a fast-drying and fade resistant mat. The various types of Waterhog mats contain different patterns, such as raised waffle, diamond, herringbone, basket weave or square designs. These patterns not only add to the attractive nature of the mats, but are intended to remove dirt from shoes and keep the dirt and moisture from adhering to shoes as people walk into a home. Any moisture that collects is whisked to the edges of the mat, where it can drain off, and accumulated dirt can easily be shaken out from the mat on occasion.
Most Waterhog door mats also have a heavy-duty backing made from rubber which adds to their durability and makes them slip resistant as well. The mats are able to withstand moderate or even heavy traffic and will last for years of regular use. Some styles of Waterhog mats are partially made from recycled materials, and there are even a few styles that are made from 100% recycled content (made from old plastic bottles), making them truly green choices for your home.
In addition to standard rectangular mats, you can also buy a Waterhog mat in a semi-circle, oval or half-oval design. There are also some styles that are rectangular near the door’s entrance but then end in a half-oval design to make a more decorative statement to your entryway. You can even get logo mats from Waterhog. The mats come in a variety of colors as well.
When most people think of a Waterhog mat, they think of a Waterhog door mat placed just outside an entrance door, but these mats can also be used as car mats, as pet mats, and in laundry rooms, kitchens, basements, playrooms and anywhere that you need a high quality mat that is not only durable but attractive as well. Waterhog car mats are another very popular option because of their durability.
You can find the mats at many home and garden stores and you can also buy Waterhog mats online from many online retailers. There are many styles of mats and Waterhog mat prices can vary from retailer to retailer, so it is best to do a little research before you head out to buy your mat so that you get the best price for the style and size you are looking for.
