Any product meant for children should be cleaned once on purchase and before it is actually used. The procedure for cleaning the mat is simple – one much connect the pieces of the mat together, and with a sponge soaked in mild soapy water, clean the entire printed surfaces. Dish soap, or any other mild soap can be used for this purpose. After cleaning the map, dry it off with a towel, and it is ready to use. Harsh soaps or detergents should not be used, as these could damage the mat.
The mat is made of rugged materials, and may be used to replace carpets or other floor coverings.
Little Nomad Mats are printed in four designs. The ‘Petal’ design is done is a cream-pink. ‘Feather’ design is a soft, gentle gray. ‘Mist’ is a pastel blue, while ‘Dusk’ is a gray pattern with touches of brown. The designs themselves are paisley, or based on eastern mandalas, and are quite tasteful.
The foam used in the mats is EVA foam of premium quality. All the materials used in the mats are tested for quality, and to make sure that they conform to crucial standards of safety. The standards used as safety protocols for the mats are the EU Toy Directive & the US Safety Standard. It's been proved that dangerous substances such as lead and other heavy metals, phthalates and formamide are excluded from products meant for children. All the testing of the mats is conducted at an independent laboratory approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The mats are easily customized. Each foam tile is a square that is two feet on each side, and these fit together to cover the space you need. Non-standard sizes are also available as needed, and single tiles can be purchased. The mat can be expanded as an when it is needed.
While the Little Nomad mat is child safe, it can also be used for yoga, or in an aerobics studio. The materials is designed to not slip or move under tension, and it also does not stick to the skin. It can be used as a mat for the feet, under a desk. This mat can also be used as a comfortable flooring for the kitchen or for a workplace.
While the mats can be used in children’s rooms, the sophistication of the patterns and designs means that they can also be used by teens or adults.
The mats may not be suitable for a house with pets. While some sorts of pets may be acceptable, those that have sharp claws may be able to damage the surface of the mats.
As the mats are made of foam, powerful vacuum cleaners should not be used to clean them – these could damage the mat surface. The mats have been designed to be cleaned using a cloth and mild soapy water.
Since the foam is soft, placing heavy furniture or equipment on it will compress the foam, and the resulting mark is likely to be permanent.
While the mats can be placed on a low-pile carpet, they are not suitable to being placed on thicker carpets, as they may flatten the carpet.
First one must remove all the ‘edge’ pieces. These are pieces that from the outer edge of the mat, and give it a complete and seamless look. Put these edge pieces to one side.
Now take all the remaining tiles and sort them out. The tiles will be in two styles, ‘Style A’ and ‘Style B’.
Each style is easy to identify, and necessary if one is to create a complete pattern. A Style tiles have a dark square in the right, lower corner of the tile, and a detailed pattern of crosshatches to the left of the tile. B Style tiles have the dark square on the left, lower corner of the tile, and the detailed pattern of crosshatches to the right.
Choose the area that your mat will occupy, and check again that you have enough pieces to cover that area. You can assemble the mat even if you do not have enough pieces, in a smaller area. Alternatively, you can leave pieces that you don’t have out of the assembled mat, and purchase them and put them in later.
Once you’ve sorted the tiles into the different styles, and decided on the layout, you can then begin to put the mat together. Do this by arranging the Style A tiles first, to the layout you have chosen, attaching them as you go along. After the Style A tiles are in place, you can place the Style B tiles so as they complete the pattern, attaching them as you go along.
Once you’ve put together all the main tiles, you can attach the edges to give the mat a completed look. Remember that the edge pieces will not always match the pattern of the tile perfectly, as there are two styles of tiles. Position the corners correctly. The mat is assembled.
