Most doors have doormats in front of them with the intention of people wiping their shoes before entering the house. A number of these doormats, however, only scrape off dirt or are meant for welcoming purposes. Thicker doormats that absorb water are helpful, as they'll absorb rain or other types of moisture on people's shoes, so they don't mess up inside floors or carpeting.
Waterhog Classic Rug
The Waterhog Classic doormat, made by the Andersen Co., is a large, industrial-style entryway rug that can be used inside or outside a front door. It absorbs water while also taking dirt off the bottoms of people's shoes. It has rubber-reinforced face nubs and a crushproof waffle design to make it last for years. It has a raised rubber dam border around its edges, trapping dirt and water and allowing you to empty it from the mat, rather than clean it off the floor. The face of the mat is 100 per cent polypropylene, a fast-drying fabric that won't rot or fade.
Cape Cod Doormats
For a handmade doormat that absorbs water from rain, snow or ice, try a Cape Cod Doormat of Distinction, made by Cape Cod Doormats, outside the entrances to your home. These mats are made from polypropylene cordage that's sewn together by hand. These mats come in 34 colours, so there's a better chance of this mat matching the colour and look of your home. The fibres in this cordage are easy to hose off and dry in the sun when they become very dirty.
Elite Textures Entry Doormats
These entry doormats will work indoors and outdoors, using moulded carpet over a moulded rubber backing so it quickly absorbs water, keeping it off of the floor. The rubber in these mats is recycled from old tire parts, making these envionmentally friendly products as well. Elite Textures mats, made by the Abdeen Group, come in different textures, like squares, cross-hatches and lattice designs, as well as colours, ranging between walnut, onyx and smoke.
