Polypropylene fiber matting, which is made from a thermoplastic plastic polymer, is extremely popular. The fibers have a very effective scraping action due to their smooth texture. Polypropylene is a great material to remove dirt and dust from shoe soles. Polypropylene is a tough, durable, and resilient entrance mat. This material is also resistant to chemicals. These mats can be used in medium- to high-traffic areas and have a reasonable crush resistance. Polypropylene can also withstand weather changes such as mildew, mold, rot, and moisture. Polypropylene’s colors are not affected by light. The color is added during fiber production and sealed into the material. Polypropylene matting is available in many colors and will look new for much longer. This matting can be used indoors or outdoors and can capture dirt in reception areas. It is cheaper than nylon, making it an attractive choice for matting in retail, offices, hotels, and other leisure industries.

Cleaning And Care


If polypropylene mats are near entrances with heavy traffic, they should be vacuumed daily if possible. Vacuuming daily will remove dirt and dust from the mat and keep them clean. It is also easier to maintain the mat clean by vacuuming daily.

Spills and Stains

To prevent staining and damage, it is best to immediately clean up any spillages on any entry mat. Polypropylene matting is no different.

To pat the liquid, use a paper towel or white cotton. Do not rub the stain as it will only make it worse. Use a lighter-colored sponge or white if there is a heavy liquid spillage.

To get rid of more severe stains, you can mix a few drops with water.

To get your mat clean and sanitary, repeat the process several times. Patience is a virtue.

Oil stains should not be ignored. Polypropylene absorbs oil quickly, so it is important to treat them immediately. To remove oil stains, you may need to use a dry cleaner. Blot the stain gently until it is gone, then vacuum.

Mud, dirt, and other solid stains

Use a dull-edged instrument to scrape as much solid off as you can.

Next, blot the cloth with a clean white towel and water until it is clean.

After vacuuming, remove any dirt from the mat and dry it.


Although polypropylene mats require very little maintenance, they should still be cleaned now and again.

You can wash the mat by taking it outside.

Use a hose to wet the mat and then use liquid detergent to clean it.

Use a soft brush to gently scrub the mat.

Rinse the water with warm water until it runs clear.


You can dry the meat by placing it against a wall, or on a sloped surface. This will help to drain water faster. The mat can be dried on a clothesline or hung on a railing. The mat should be dried outside, but not in direct sun.
