A sturdy middle ground between our entry-level 3/8-inch mats and the heavier-duty 3/4-inch mats, our 1/2-inch mats are a goldilocks "just-right" solution designed for those spaces where you need more than moderate, light-traffic padding, but your needs (or your budget) are not so great that you need the extra substance a 3/4-inch mat provides.
Choosing the Right Thickness
Our 1/2-inch thickness is ideal for settings where a little extra padding goes a long way, such as any place where you need to stand for an extended period of time (think cash registers, the kitchen sink, or any standing work station), or a small space where you want to do bodyweight exercises such as sit-ups, push-ups, or those dreaded burpees. If your plans involve setting up a semi-permanent home fitness area or any other high-impact scenario, it's worth upgrading to our 3/4-inch thickness. Keep in mind that no matter the thickness, EVA foam is a soft product and heavy equipment or furniture is likely to leave a permanent indentation.
Keep it Clean
The closed-cell structure of EVA foam makes our interlocking foam mats water resistant and simple to clean. Dry cleaning is a snap with regular broom or vacuum cleaner, and in the event of a spill, simply pull up the affected mat(s), wipe them down, and allow them to air dry before re-assembling your floor. If you want to wet-clean your entire floor, you can literally hose the mats down (outdoors, of course!), allow them to air dry, and re-assemble. In most cases, water is all you'll need. A mild solution of soap and water will likely take care of more stubborn messes, and we always recommend that you make sure to try any commercial cleaning product in a small, inconspicuous area of the mat prior to cleaning the whole surface.
