Help Protect Your Kids with Foam Floor Mats
No matter how attentive or protective a parent is, it’s unavoidable that a child will fall down at some point. But as they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So for parents who are rational enough to realize they can’t hold their child’s hand with every step they take, there are still precautions that can be taken to help reduce the chances of an accident as a child learns to walk or play.
One of the best ways to protect a child from accidental injury is a foam play mat. Made of closed-cell foam, these mats are rigid enough to provide a firm and comfortable surface for playing and walking, while having enough give and cushion to protect a child if there is a fall. Floor cover foam is incredibly versatile by nature of its dimensions, as it’s made in thin sheets that are easily rolled and stored when not in use. With a child’s tendency to make the biggest mess possible with whatever they are eating or playing with, a durable material is also a necessity. Foam floor mats are just this, since closed-cell foams are water-resistant and don’t have easily-stained cushion fabric. Most water-based inks can even be washed off. Being able to clean and sanitize a play area is a must for parents, especially during cold or flu season.
For people with homes dominated by hardwood flooring, foam pads are an excellent option to keep younger children safe against the hard surface, without permanently covering the flooring. When playtime is over, it can be rolled back up as storage foam, leaving a room the way it was before. If you’re looking to outfit a child’s play area or just trying to prevent some of the inevitable bumps and bruises of childhood, a firm and cushioning closed-cell foam floor mat is a versatile, practical product.
