The pre-existing solution for industrial mats used in any frequently used building entrance is unable to serve its purpose when it’s put to use. The purpose of the mat being to prevent weather conditions from being brought into the location they are placed. The reality is that when it does rain or snow the current solution is unable to prevent the weather from causing wet floors or damaging the floor surface as a result of the salt resulting in the need to take significant corrective measures. The current solution used by the customer is that when there is a day of rain and snow they spend the entirety of that day managing the damage, mopping and cleaning. As stated by the owners of Rexall, Starbucks, and Tim Hortons chains, the constant need to clean significantly slows down their daily routines and impacts employee and customer satisfaction. At the end of the day they call the head office and the office must then send staff to further clean the area and replace the carpets in use.
