    Anyone recommend a good entry/exit mat for my laundromat? I seem to get them locally at Home Depot which are are 3X5 rubber/vinyl on the bottom, with a soft fabric type top. They do not last long, and look horrible, hard to wash.

    Thank you for any input, as I need to replace them…again.

    Basically they are all good. But those extremely thick ones are hard for the carts to roll up on. Never get one of those!
    Uline comes to mind off the top of my head.

    I have an old vinyl floor mat. Still looks good. Just don't put in washer. The G force from spin cycle will fold and crease backing and then it comes apart. I clean mine with a power washer and hang to drip dry. I brush surface dirt with a stiff broom on a daily basis.

    I get mine from globalindustrial.com

    Home depot ones are junk since they changed to a cheaper backing. Same with the ones from Lowes.

    I got mine from amazon.

    got it back in April and so far so good. Doesn't slide on tile either.

    I get my floor mats from matdepot.com. They sell commercial grade mats that can be washed a lot. I still have a couple mats that are 8 years old. During the winter they get washed every 1 - 3 days depending on the weather. They can also put your print on them as well

    I recently began service with Health Mats.  I paid for the logo mat and they come weekly to replace it.  You can choose how often you want it replaced, our store has a lot of traffic so I am on a weekly plan.  No need to wash it or replace it, best service idea yet!!
