Former Girls Aloud band member Kimberley Walsh had a nasty fall last weekend, slipping on a poor quality door mat at her home and breaking her wrist. The media took a huge interest in the event as Kimberley is currently expecting her first child and she had to take to Twitter to reassure her fans that all was okay, despite the bad injury.
Kimberley is definitely not the only person to have fallen foul of inadequate door matting. This is something close to our hearts as matting specialists, and something we warn our customers about as often as we can. The inferior backing on Kimberley's mat at home caused the mat to move under her feet and send her flying. A bad door mat can be as just as dangerous as no door mat at all, with similar risks of trips, falls and injuries even in your own home.
A mat with sturdy rubber backing adheres to your floor and allows you to clean your feet while passing over the mat in safety. Don’t underestimate the value of a good mat in your home!
Benefits of a good door mat:
- Slip resistant
- Makes floors safer
- Keeps floors cleaner and extends their useful life
- Easy to handle
- Absorb moisture and traps dirt
- Durable – last for years
