MONUMATE ENTRANCE MATTING
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
A regular and thorough maintenance program for your Entrance Matting is essential to ensure optimal performance. Monumat products are designed to catch and hold dirt particles. Therefore, allowing build-up for long periods of time can restrict pile movement and lead to `tracking’ as the matting is continually trafficked.
Normal day-to-day soiling must be removed with a vacuum cleaner. A vacuum cleaner with a rotating brush will give the best results, helping to release dirt.
WEEKLY / MONTHLY
The matting should be carefully rolled back, section by section, and the base of the matwell thoroughly swept/vacuumed. Any debris caught in between the channels of matting should be removed and then the matting rolled back in to position. Take care not to drag the matting - it is designed to simply roll up and unroll again. Dragging the matting could cause damage. Closed construction, non-rollable matting should follow the Daily Routine, but in addition aluminium channels with a mild detergent to help free any soiling.
The Matting can be carefully removed from the matwell and sprayed with a high pressure water machine. Use of strong cleaning chemicals should be avoided.
Chewing gum must be removed as soon as it appears, by the use of specialist products, such as freezing sprays or gels - failure to remove gum quickly will cause it to become hardened and compacted into the matting surface reducing performance.
Contact the Walmay team for specific cleaning advice on individual products and in abnormal environments. Full instructions available in Operation and Maintenance manuals. As with all matting, when subject to heavy wheeled traffic (scissor lifts/pallet trucks etc) it should be suitably protected with plywood boarding.
