There’s a new manta circulating around offices that, “sitting is the new smoking.” This visual statement demonstrates the unhealthy side effects of sitting in front of a computer all day. This commonplace habit could be compared to the former prevalence of smoking in the office and every day locations. What is the solution to the addiction to sitting? Standing. Standing desks have come to reign supreme as the latest trend in office culture for their health benefits.
Typically, underneath standing desks many people use rubber mats. Rubber mats provide air underneath foot and have a plush sensation that’s better on the body than hard concrete. Though standing has many health benefits, it’s important to care for your feet with cushioned rubber mats. You wouldn’t sit in a hard, uncushioned office chair all day, so why would you stand without the proper protection beneath your feet?
Using Rubber Mat Cleaner
When working in an office environment, you may wonder how dirty can rubber mats really get? If you don’t use a rubber mat cleaner on a regular basis, you may end up having to replace rubber mats more often than you’d like. Your shoes carry in the elements from outside, be it beach sand that can scratch the rubber mats, or the chemicals from snow melt tracked in with your winter boots.
Benefits of Rubber Mat Cleaner
- Use rubber mat cleaner to maintain the condition of your standing desk mats
- Avoid having to regularly replace mats due to wear and tear
- Remove nasty smells, and avoid judgement from your officemates
- Maintain shine with a streak-free finish
Transitioning to a standing desk from sitting can be a hard adjustment, but with comfortable rubber mats below your feet you’ll soon be wondering why you didn’t do it sooner. Be sure to use a reliable rubber mat cleaner like Clean Break’s Neutral pH Cleaner & Degreaser. Add more life to your rubber mats when you get them by using Clean Break’s Rubber Flooring & Mat Sealant.
Rubber mats have a place in a wide variety of venues from flooring in commercial kitchens to doggy day care centers and small animal hospitals. Did you know rubber mats provide the perfect surface for protecting wood floors and encouraging anti-slip safety in fishing boats? Rubber mat cleaners such as Clean Break’s Multi-purpose Disinfectant make cleaning and maintaining these surfaces even easier.
Benefits of Rubber Mats in Fishing Boats
- Comfort – When standing for a long time in a fishing boat, feet start to ache from the hard, flat surface. Install rubber mats in fishing boats to prevent fatigue and relieve built up pressure in the feet and ankles. Rubber mats are soft and form to the foot, which makes for happy passengers on board your fishing boat.
- Drainage – Often seen in kitchens, rubber mats with holes are perfect for floors requiring drainage, such as fishing boats. These types of mats easily allow water to drain, which is an essential feature when talking about a boat. Water always finds it way onto boats, it’s part of their nature. Installing rubber mats keeps your feet happy while also appropriately draining excess water from your vessel.
- Traction – In a naturally wet and slippery area, it makes total sense to cover the floors of your boat in a textured surface that gives traction. Rubber mats in fishing boats help prevent slipping. When water splashes into the boat while reeling in a big catch decrease your chances of slipping with textured rubber flooring.
- Prevent Physical Damage – Having rubber flooring and rubber mats in place on a fishing boat prevents corrosion from saltwater, damage from exposure to sunlight and damage from constant foot traffic on wood floors. Repairing damage to wood floors can be expensive. Installing rubber mats protects moisture sensitive wood floors, which helps save money long term.
- Easy to Clean and Maintain – With Clean Break’s line of rubber mat sealants, disinfectants and cleaners, maintaining the durability and lifespan of rubber mats comes easy. Avoid mold, fungus and bacteria by using rubber mat sealant to seal and protect rubber mats from the beginning. Clean Break’s Multi-purpose Disinfectant is a simple to apply, rubber mat cleaner for regular use in fishing boats.
It’s that time of year. It’s hot outside, which makes it even hotter in restaurant kitchens. Not only do restaurant rubber mats regularly have to put up with grease, oils and foods, but in the summer months sweat and additional humidity add to the need for more traction.
The durability and cleanliness of rubber mats in commercial kitchens plays a large role in safety. Cleaning commercial kitchen rubber mats with rubber mat cleaner helps preserve the mats when traction and drainage are most important.
Clean Break offers a variety of products to protect rubber flooring and mats in commercial kitchens and restaurants. Give your rubber flooring and mats a head start on long lasting performance by using a rubber mat sealant.
Benefits of Rubber Mat Sealant in Commercial Kitchens

Clean Break’s Neutral pH Cleaner and Degreaser acts as the perfect rubber mat cleaner for commercial kitchens and restaurants.

A lack of traction in a hot, greasy kitchen can be detrimental to safety. It’s important to regularly clean and degrease with a rubber mat cleaner that’s easy on surfaces and tough on cleaning.
