Waterhog Classic Mats have become the most recognized entrance mats in the industry. Due to their "waffle" or raised square pattern, these entrance door mats effectively scrape shoes clean of dirt, debris and water. Waterhog Mats also features a water dam border that holds up to 1.5 gallons per square yard.
• Waterhog Floor Mats have an anti-static polypropylene surface that dries quickly and will not be prone to fading or rotting. Thus, Waterhog Classic is a perfect floor mat for both inside and outside environments.
• To clean Waterhog Mats, simply vacuum, hose off or use steam or shampoo extraction.
• Waterhog Classic Entry Mats are now made with 20% recycled content.

Waterhog Classic Mats are 3/8" thick with the gripper backing and closer to 1/4" thick with the standard smooth backing for use on hard floor surfaces. The beveled edges on each side of the mat slope down, starting at the full height of the mat. (When door clearance could be an issue there are 2 easy ways to verify: first is to use a stack of computer paper and place it in front of the door and then slowly open it. Then take a ruler and measure the height of the untouched papers. The second option is for us to send out a free, cut sample of the actual Waterhog Classic material for customers to test under the door.) That being said, the Waterhog Classic mats can be used around just about all residential and commercial doors without issue.
It's easy to cut down Waterhog mats to fit around obstructions without worrying about the mat coming undone. The best way to trim the Waterhog Classic is by using a utility knife with a fresh blade (and a ruler/something with firm, straight side for a clean edge). The integrity of the Waterhog Classic mat will remain for many years and the polypropylene fabric surfacew will not unravel. (Please note, however, that you will lose the finished edge in areas where the border is removed.)
Although you are certainly able to use the Gripper-backed Waterhog mats on a hard floor (like tile, wood, concrete, LVT, etc.), it is best to use the Smooth backing on this type of flooring. The reason is that the Waterhog's Smooth back has greater surface contact with the floor below to help hold the mat in place better. (The biggest mismatch to avoid is using a Smooth backing on a carpet otherwise, for your situation, selecting a Smooth backing for your Waterhog Classic is the ideal way to go.)
The Waterhog Classic is one of the most customizable floor matting products around. There are two ways to customize this mat: in the sizing as well as adding a custom logo design. If the desired size isn't listed as a standard option, simply click the Custom Size box and select from a variety of widths and lengths in one foot increments up to 60 feet. This can be done online or over the phone. If, instead, you're looking to add a custom logo to promote your brand, add a message, an address, or just about anything else, check out the Waterhog Logo Floor Mats.

The entire Waterhog product line, including Classic matting, is manufactured here in the United States, using American-sourced raw materials.
Great question! These mats are made with a premium, commercial-grade rubber backing that is both non-reactive yet very flexible. These properties allow the mat to be placed on virtually any surface and also frequently be rolled up / taken up and stored away without negatively affecting the integrity of the rubber backing and border. Specifically, even if these Waterhog mats are rolled up and put back down with any frequency, they should lay flat right away and not curl up nor should the edging break away.
Not a problem; Waterhog Mats are made with a solid rubber backing and border and the surface material is polypropylene which is stain-, fade-, and mildew-resistant and does not absorb any liquids. The best thing to do is take the mat outside and simply hose it down. Using just a little bit of dish soap will ensure the Waterhog Mat comes out of this fresh and clean and as good as it was before the accident, if not better!
