Sometimes question comes how to measure ESD . It can be measured through Voltmeter and it can measure electrostatic voltage upto 30,000V. This meter will also identify postive and negative charges . There can be different ways to avoid or reduce this ESD.

1. Keeping synthetic material 4inch away from electronic devices.

2.Using static floor mats where necessary

3.Treat carpets and floors with compounds that drop down static charges .

And many more .

ESD floor mat can prevent electronic devices from being damaged by any electrostatic charge.

There are different sources of static electricity :

1. Waxed floors , vinyle tile on surfaces and so on .

2. Finished wood chairs, vinyle  and fibre glass.

3.Synthetic clothes, nylon etc

4.Common plastic bags, trays and so on

If we walk on carpeted floor in a heated room the shock we experience when we touch door knob is static electricity .
