Even if you think you’re spending hours sitting at your desk, chances are, you don’t stay still. You move around, more specifically, you move your chair around. All that moving causes strain on both the chair and the floor surface. If you happen to have carpeted floors, it can lead to back and leg pain, not to mention the strain on your chair. However, an office chair mat would allow you to move more easily without needing to exert too much effort. Just one of the many benefits of an office chair mat, which we will be looking at today.
Helps Maintain Your Carpet
Continuous strain on the carpet can be such an eyesore. It can make any office look downtrodden and shabby. Over time, all the gliding and moving can destroy your carpeting if you don’t have floor protection. And if you ruin your carpet, you end up replacing the entire thing rather than just one area. If you want to create and maintain an elegant office and working space, invest in chair mats, so you don’t have to risk your good carpeting being ruined faster than what you expected.
Great for the Body
Chair mats are ergonomically beneficial in preventing leg fatigue and easing movement. If you currently do not have a chair mat and use your office chair on a carpeted surface, then you have most likely already felt the pressure and struggle that it takes to roll from one spot to another. This tiny irritation affects more important aspects of your job, such as team-building and collaboration with coworkers. Smoothly swerving chairs increase the opportunity for physical collaboration, which is never a bad thing in business! With a chair mat, gliding from one spot to another is a simple task rather than having to utilize your leg muscles to give you the momentum to move on the carpet. Repetitive pushing with your leg muscles can cause unnecessary leg and back pain from overexerting oneself!
