How To Clean Your Martial Arts Mat
Martial arts mats are expensive so they need to be cleaned and maintained. They can also be hazardous to the health of martial arts students if they are not cleaned properly.
For other martial arts school ideas, please visit the main Instructors & School Owners section.
Steps for Cleaning Your Martial Arts Mat
1. If possible, ask your students to keep their "street shoes" off the mat. Students should only use martial arts shoes or bare feet on the mat.
Things to Avoid
1. According to About.com, when cleaning a mat, martial arts schools should avoid "Any acidic or acetone based chemical cleansers, or any solution that contains turpentine. Scouring pads, and steel wool sponges can slice and scar the surface of the rubber, damaging it during the cleaning process".
