What is a door mat and why do we use them?
A door mats main purpose is to keep your home clean and fresh. When wiping our feet before we come in, we are leaving behind the mud and moisture which can damage our floors. This dirt can also be a source of germs and contaminants so a dirt-trapping door mat will make sure to keep us extra protected. During rain or wet weather, waterproof outdoor door mats can also provide us with extra safety. An absorbent door mat allows us to dry our shoes before stepping into the home, which is especially useful to prevent slipping if you have wooden or tiled floors.

Some interior door mats are specifically designed for indoors, such as kitchen door mats, so be sure to check this when making your choice.

Soft door mats for inside can also keep your feet warm when you have wooden or tiled flooring.
Another important point to think about before you buy your home doormat is the surface of your floor. If you have wooden or tiled flooring, a non slip door mat or rubber backed door mat will be a good decision to prevent accidents and falls. Non slip door mats also will prevent the door mat from sliding or moving each time you open the door.

How to size a front door mat
Before you buy an entrance doormat, it is important to make sure you have properly measured your door so you know how big your door mat should be. The recommended width of the door rug should be at least 80% of your door width. So if you have double doors, you may need to consider an extra large door mat or double door mat so that it gives enough surface for your guests to clean their feet. On the other hand, if your doorway is narrow, a small door rug may be a better option for you. Make sure to measure the space under your door too, so you know how thick your door mat should be. If there is only a small space between your door and the floor, you may need to consider a thin door mat so that your door does not jam.
How to clean door mats at home
How to clean your house mat will depend on the material that it is made from. Be sure to check the care instructions to see if it is a washable door mat. Not all door mats are machine washable and some door mats should only be vacuumed or shaken. If you are wondering how to wash your door mats in the washing machine, make sure to look at the label of your door mat to make sure that you wash it at the right temperature.
