Green Buildings Use Floor Mat Rental Services
Green spaces and attitudes are facts of life in the 21st century. Learning about going green and reducing the environmental impact of plastics, styrofoams and other non-biodegradables in the home, at work and in business is now a priority for many people and companies, and Sno White Floor Mat Systems is no stranger to this positive initiative.
Every rental mat program has, among others, one clear goal: to trap and prevent contaminants from entering a space. In the case of green buildings, Sno White Floor Mat Systems’ rental mat program complies with the rating system created by the U.S. Green Building Council. It’s simply another way to provide outstanding service to our customers.
Rental Mats are Green
The products and materials currently used in new construction tend to be more and more environment-friendly, but there are also ways to mitigate the pollution, dirt, soil and other contaminants that may enter any particular space. Floor mats and carpets are among some of these methods. New air-conditioning and noise-reduction systems are also developed with this objective in mind.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that indoor air may be 2 to 5 times as polluted as the air outside. It’s also estimated that over three-quarters of the dust, soil and contaminants in a building come right through the door, on people’s feet.
Good-quality mats and carpets help maintain a greener environment inside buildings all over America. It’s been proven that 85% of the dirt and soil brought into any building can be contained within the first 10 to 12 feet. Your rental mat service with Sno White Floor Mat Systems can then be a key element in creating a greener building and maintaining appropriate green housekeeping criteria.
