Changing the inlay

Replacing the ribbing to ensure the cleaning function

As with a floor covering, the inlay of the entrance mat is also subject to wear and tear. While quirks, stains and scratches appear on the floor covering, the inlay of the entrance mat is worn down by the permanent load. This gradually reduces the cleaning function without it being immediately noticeable until, in the worst case, cleaning is no longer possible. Replacing the ribbed inlay not only restores the entrance mat, but also protects the floor covering from damage thanks to the improved cleaning performance. Avoid a loss of function of your entrance mat and replace the ribbed insert now!
