    IMPORTANT PRODUCT FOR AN IMPORTANT JOB

 

KEEP LEAD DUST FROM BEING TRACKED OUT OF  THE RENOVATION AREA

                   STEP AND CLEAN STICKY MAT

 Fine dust particles of lead can be tracked through your job site. Let a Step and clean Sticky Mat help with that problem. As you step on the mat  dust and dirt is trapped on the sticky surface of the mat. As each layer becomes soiled simply peel away the layer to reveal a clean one. Economically priced disposable multi-layer mat packs containing 30 or 60 layers each can be  used anywhere  you need to capture dust and dirt from foot traffic. The mult-layer mat packs  are attached to a frame and are refillable.
