The main and obvious type of mat is a door mat; this is very different to an entrance mat. Doors mat will sure that whilst your guests are outside, they will use it before they enter the home. This will usually get rid of any obvious dirt or mud. The Door mat will be outside and will usually be a bit dirty but this doesn't matter because of the entrance mat. The entrance mat is a mat which is on the other side of the door (inside of your house or property), this mat should be a mat which welcomes the guest and lets them know that they have come inside. This is why the mat should be clean. It is very often that the entrance mat will have a welcome sign on it. Such as welcome, or come, there are many other welcome signs that will allow you to greet your guests. Mats like these are always used on the back door. The back door is often just as important as the front door. Most houses or homes have little pathway in their back garden, and this will cause more mud to be trodden into the house. The same precautions should be used on the back door, as you do on the front door.
The indoor mats (or home mats as they are commonly called) are good for people who usually have wooden floors. They are used with wooden floors to stop slipperiness which the wooden floors can often cause. This is especially important if you have younger children, or if you have visitors who are very young. Water and liquid will not soak into the wooden floors like they will into carpets, so be careful because young people, or elderly people are most at risk if you choose not to use an indoor mat in your home. These small tips will help you to ensure that your home is a safe place to all.
