When you look at a well-detailed car, one of the first things you’ll notice is how clean the car floor mats are. Having car floor mats can save you wear and tear on your car’s floor and up your trade in value. You may not think about car mats all that much, but having a good set can make the difference between a worn floor and a showroom condition vehicle.
Car mats come in several different types. They are usually sold in pairs of four. They come in car or truck sizes and can be tailor made for a particular vehicle. Heavy duty mats are designed for industrial use such as tractor trailers that will see lots of wear.
Not only do car floor mats protect the carpet underneath your feet, they also help protect your feet from slipping. When you’re driving, you need your feet to remain on solid ground and not slip under a petal. A good set of mats will stay in place and have a rubber backing.
You can have car mats customized with logos, names and graphics. Many car mats are universal and will fit any make and model of car. If you’d like to add a little flair to those standard mats, you can get them with details that show off your personality and zest for life.
Not only will your carpets be protected from rain, snow and grime, but your shoes will too. If you’ve ever forgotten to replace your car mats after washing them, you know how awkward it feels to have your shoes slide on bare carpet. You’ll scrape the backs of your heels and end up ruining a good pair of shoes.
Having a quality set of car mats can really make a difference. Spills can be lifted up off the mats much more easily than if the spill occurs on the floor of the car. Stains like milk and juice can be deadly as they fester and smell. With a car may, you just lift it and wash it.
Look for mats that trap dirt and stones. Rubber edged mats with raised grooves are best for back seats where kids climb in and out. They’ll catch all the crackers and Cheerios that otherwise would be ground into the carpet for good.
