How To Maintain Healthy Mats and Protect Athletes with Dollamur’s Mat Attack!™ Cleaner

At the peak of any training season common rashes and infections will occur on sport surfaces. Through-out regular training, mats should be cleaned daily to prevent what is commonly referred to as “Mat Funk,” a combination of infectious conditions such as ring worm, herpes simplex, impetigo, staph infections/MRSA and scabies.

“Contagious skin infections are a big concern for athletes who compete at any level,” said Chuck Thompson, VP at Dollamur. “As a manufacturer of high-performance sport surfaces for wrestling, martial arts, cross-training and fitness, Dollamur mats help protect athletes from falls and take-downs.  Regular cleaning maintenance of your mats is critical to health and well-being of athletes.  For many years, Dollamur has offered an Athletic Surface Disinfectant, but the decision was made to rebrand this product with a new name Mat Attack!™ Athletic Surface Cleaner to stress the importance for mat health.”

Mat Attack!™ is designed to provide effective cleaning, deodorizing and disinfection in areas where housekeeping maintenance is of prime importance in controlling the hazard of cross-contamination on surfaces. Use Dollamur’s Mat Attack!™ to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces such as Wrestling, Martial Arts, MMA, Fitness, Yoga and Pilates mats, wall pads, athletic mats, athletic training tables, physical therapy tables, exercise equipment, athletic helmets, wrestling/boxing headgear, athletic shoe soles and in locker rooms.

“Even though all of our smooth and tatami vinyl mats are pre-treated with an anti-microbial, additional daily cleaning is a critical step for a safe and healthy mat,” added Thompson.
