The StepWell mat provides an all-in-one solution for safely sanitizing shoes. It features a 2′ x 3′ well that holds an abrasive insert and your preferred liquid sanitizer, followed by a 3′ x 5′ carpeted section to help remove any excess moisture from shoes, reducing the likelihood of slips following sanitation. Wash, wipe, and walk on safely!
Ideal for use in food processing, healthcare and childcare facilities, or any area where increased protection from germs is important. StepWell mats require the use of a sanitizing solution (not included). The StepWell mat works best with quaternary and hydrogen peroxide sanitizing solutions; can be used with chlorine bleach solutions, but failure to adhere to recommended concentrate can damage the mat.
The life of your insert will depend greatly on the amount of foot traffic your mat receives. The insert should be replaced at your discretion, but we recommend replacing it when it begins to show signs of wear.
For the well and insert, we recommend weekly cleaning. Simply wipe the well down or hose off and allow to dry.
The insert can be rinsed in a sink or hosed off.
The carpeted portion of the mat can be cleaned in several different ways:
- Vacuum regularly (daily in high-traffic areas; weekly in lower-traffic applications)
- Clean with an extractor. Hang to dry.
- Hose off. Hang to dry.
The StepWell mat works best with quaternary and hydrogen peroxide sanitizing solutions; can be used with chlorine bleach solutions, but failure to adhere to recommended concentrate can damage the mat.
- Quaternary ammonium should be used per recommended dilution instructions on the label (for sanitizing level protection).
- 3% hydrogen peroxide solutions can be used without further dilution.
- 6% chlorine bleach should be used at a concentration of 0.4% (0.5 oz. per gallon). Caution: Do not use mat as a work surface to prepare bleach solution, as undiluted bleach may cause permanent color loss.
With the insert in the well, slowly pour your sanitizing solution over the insert. Fill the well to the level of slight puddling when stepped on (approximately 84.5 ounces or 2.5 liters of solution).
Refill the well when puddling no longer occurs.
The mat may be used without an insert, but please be advised that disinfectant loss is more likely to occur due to splashing/sloshing when the insert is not used. Fill the well about 2/3 to allow for displacement when shoes are placed in the well.
