I am curious if anyone has ever run a special to clean just floor mats ?
Here a lot of linen supply companies lease mats and they pick up and launder them weekly.We offer a total of 30’ of matting starting 8’ out side the door and the rest divided between the doors and after the second set of doors into the building.
I usually offer a seasonal price as a-posed to a per cleaning charge.
We sell them the matting and just clean them.
I’ve done pricing both ways and find we make more money charging seasonally. As well the. We don’t “own” the mats either. When the start to get wore out I’m not stuck with the cost of replacing them. I usually sell mat-tec matting Chevron black. $4.50 per sq’. As well as mat-door finger pic mats. And finally just plain gripper mats. The kind that can just be shaken out.
There are here as well. The trouble with letting anyone else into your contract is your opening the door for them. First it’s carpet rental, then it’s chemicals, then It’s washroom supplies. There’s even some of these damn company’s that do Janitorial services. We have enough competition with out inviting them into the building.Here a lot of linen supply companies lease mats and they pick up and launder them weekly.
