Well, it may not be about economy but about who wants to clean and how. On a 
daily basis, rolling up mats to sweep and damp mop maybe too much. 

The attraction to rolling up mats, hauling outside, hosing down, and swabbing 
the floor will likely to be from different people than those who might do daily 

Sexist alert: As someone said before about lawns, buy a riding mower and men, 
at least, will be falling all over themselves to mow the lawn.

The same may be true of any housekeeping job that becomes big and impressive. 
Our sanitizer attracted those who loved the big dealness of it. The noise added 
to the drama. Now we have dishwashers and I can’t say I’ve seen any men taking 
an interest in them.
