Remove Unwanted Particulates, Debris & Practice Good Contamination Control. Adhesive Floor Entrance Mats Keep Rooms Clean

According to a March 26, 2020 article in the New York post, coronavirus can survive on shoes for up to 5 days, experts warn.

Cornavirus likes to cling to surfaces such as electronic devices, cardboard, shopping carts and door knobs. Now add shoes, boots and sneakers.

Infectious disease specialist Mary E. Schmidt warns that the coronavirus could survive on rubber, leather and PVC-based soles for five days or more, the Huffington Post UK reported — and has even suggested that individuals wear shoes that are machine-washable. Depending on what materials are used to construct a shoe, the pathogen can remain for days on the upper part as well. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases found that COVID-19 can survive on plastic for up to two or three days, meaning shoes featuring plastic components are also risky.

Airborne infectious agents an unwanted contaminates are being cross-contaminated from the bottom of our shoes, sneakers and boots every day. Placing a tacky step-on floor mat in high traffic areas and main entrances will significantly decrease the amount of unwanted particulates and dirt that is tracked in from foot-traffic, wheeled machinery and/or work carts.


Tacky floor mats are commonly used at the door entrances of laboratory and production facilities in pharmaceutical, medical, electronics, food processing and other technical environments. Today, many other manufacturing and commercial facilities are discovering their value as a simple, effective and reliable component of a clean maintenance program and infection control.
