We’re so confident that you’ll enjoy your British made Dirttrapper door mat or rug for a long time to come that we give you a five-year guarantee on purchase.
We do, however, have to rely on you to keep your Dirttrapper clean to ensure maximum performance and longevity.
Don’t worry… we’re not out to add hugely to your list of regular chores, but you will surely appreciate that your trusty door mat is your first line of defence against the dirt coming indoors, so hopefully you won’t begrudge giving your Dirttrapper the odd clean.
All this entails is a regular washing, in a regular washing machine. When we say “regular” that depends on the amount of use your door mat has. As a general rule you should wash it when it looks grubby, but you don’t have to be afraid of washing it too often. With the Dirttrapper, believe it or not, the more you wash it the better it will be, because cotton just loves to get wet.
The nitrile rubber backing is resilient enough to withstand any number of washes without losing its waterproof and non-slip properties, and the colours on our quality mats will not fade with frequent washing.
While machine washing works fine, we’ve had some customers opt for occasionally blasting their larger mats with a power-washer. That works too – and you’ll find your Dirttrapper quite happy with the rough treatment!
NOTE: Wash your Dirttrapper mat immediately before you begin to use it. This initial washing helps separate and soften the cotton pile and the soaking then drying will activate the cotton fibres into maximum absorbency mode.
In between washes you can freshen up your Dirttrapper by giving it the once over with a vacuum cleaner, a hearty shake or stiff brushing. This ensures that it keeps looking good and the pile stays fluffed up and ready to trap that incoming dirt and moisture.
It is a good idea to lift your mat occasionally when you are vacuuming or cleaning the floor so you can keep the margin round the mat dust free. Keep the rubber backing of the mat clean so as not to interfere with the non-slip multi-grip properties.
That’s all it takes for your Dirttrapper mat to provide you with a grand entrance for many years.
