I'd like to mop them, but how do you make sure that water doesn't get between them and become sort of breeding ground for horrible skin diseases?

Sweep

Spray a mist over them that has anti bacterial and anti fungal properties.

Dry mop to dry.

I really don't know man.

I'm just passing on what I see the guys doing at my gym.

Its a pretty quick and effective system though. Mats are done in about 5-10 mins.

dont forget to really scrub whatever you spray down into the mats. agitation is a big part of the cleaning process :)

Pull them up often and clean the sides and under. We had some and it didn't take long for them to mold. Phone Post 3.0

I like Odoban. It is organic and kills bacteria, fungus, MRSA causing agents, staff, and a ton of other unwanted grossness.I use hot water, mop with a anti microbal mop head, then dry mop with a different mop head. It keeps our mats clean and safe, we have never had a problem with our mats. This with 12-14 classes a week. We mop before each class.
