Mats Become More Important as Winter Arrives in Portland MaineLee McDonald
While many Portland Maine businesses use floor mats year round, they’re most important during the winter months, when they can literally save lives. That’s why Crown Uniform and Linen’s commercial mat service in Portland, ME is so important.
Winter brings ice, snow, and slush — and the potential for slip and fall accidents. No matter what kind of business you have, from an auto body shop to a hair salon, winter weather creates safety hazards that could cost you your business!
Slips and falls account for around 40% of workplace injuries. Some result in just a bit of bruising. But for older people, a simple fall can cause life-threatening injuries. In today’s litigious society, attorneys happily offer their services on a “no win, no fee” basis, because they know that they’re likely to win a large settlement and keep 25% of the damages.
You Are “The Fall Guy”
If a judge determines that your negligence led to someone’s injury, you’ll end up paying the damages. Many people have been put out of business as a result of massive damages awarded against them by a court. The annual cost of medical expenses and compensation in the U.S. for slip and fall accidents is about $70 billion!
This is just one reason why Crown’s commercial mat service in Portland, ME is so important. We provide premium mats, and collect and deep clean them regularly. Vacuuming only removes about 10% of the dirt that collects in the mats, which is why deep cleaning is essential.
