How To Clean A Welcome Doormat:

Cleaning a welcome doormat doesn't have to be a challenging process. In fact, with a few simple cleaning steps, even heavily soiled or stained doormats can be restored to their original condition. 1. Start by shaking the mat vigorously outside to remove as much dirt and debris as possible. This is especially important if you have an outdoor welcome mat. 2. Use either a vacuum cleaner or a soft brush to remove any remaining dirt and dust particles. It is essential that this is done when the dirt is dry, or else you could worsen the stain. 3. If the mat is machine washable, you can now put it in the washing machine on a gentle cycle without any harsh chemicals. 4. Lay the mat out to dry! It is important to check the material of your doormat prior to cleaning, as materials such as coir are highly water absorbent and can be damaged easily when wet. These should be brushed vigorously with a stiff brush instead.

Welcome Door Mat FAQs:

We've done our best to try and answer some of the most common questions about welcome doormats below:

How Do I Choose a Welcome Mat?

When choosing a doormat, you should keep a few factors in mind. Firstly, are you looking for a decorative or practical mat? Coir is durable if you're looking for a mat that will last long-term. Next, is the mat effective at stopping dirt and water-resistant? And finally, is it washable? These are all helpful things to remember as they'll point you toward the type of mat you need!

What Type of Doormat is Best?

No specific doormat can be defined as the 'best' for your home, as it depends on a range of factors, including your price range, amount of foot traffic, and the place you intend on putting your mat. Often, the best mats can catch dirt and debris, be water resistant, and withstand heavy foot traffic. Luckily here at Make an Entrance, we stock a wide range of entrance doormats made from different materials such as coir, synthetic coir, and much more!

Do Doormats Go Inside Or Outside?

You can put a doormat either inside or outside according to your own personal preferences. If your home sees a lot of foot traffic, having a coir doormat inside is a sensible idea because it filters the dirt off of shoes before entering your house. There is no 'wrong' place to put a doormat. However, you must keep in mind that an outdoor door mat will be exposed to harsh weather conditions and may not last as long.

What Are Some Common Materials Used To Make Welcome Doormats?

Welcome doormats come in a variety of materials designed to suit different requirements. The most common materials used include:
  • Coir - made from the husks of coconuts and is highly durable, water absorbent and can easily be vacuumed or brushed.
  • Polypropylene - made from a synthetic material, this is one of the cheapest doormat materials and is easy to clean due to its non-absorbent nature.
  • Rubber - rubber doormats are the most popular choice for outdoors, as they are durable, weatherproof and slip-resistant.

How Can I Choose The Right Size Welcome Doormat For My Front Door?

Your doormat should be at least as wide as your front door. This will ensure that it covers the entire area and can easily be stepped onto without any issues. Additionally, consider the shape of your doormat according to how much space you have available in front of your door. Both of these factors will ensure that your doormat is as efficient as possible.

Can Welcome Doormats Be Used Inside My Home As Well As Outside?

Yes. However, this depends on the material of the doormat. For instance, coir mats are best used indoors as they're highly water absorbent and can be easily vacuumed or brushed. On the other hand, rubber mats are best for outdoor use as they're durable, weatherproof and slip-resistant. Regardless of which material you choose – remember to measure your space beforehand to ensure that you pick a welcome mat that fits perfectly in the allotted area.
