And Why Your Factory Floor Mats Just Aren’t Enough
Most drivers do everything they can to protect the exterior of their car. Nobody wants scratches, dings, or dents, right? But what’s often overlooked - and just as important - is your car’s interior. Just like the outside of your car, the inside can also get damaged if you aren’t careful. Spills can happen, and outdoor debris can make its way onto your interior carpet. Water can be extremely damaging, too.
Luckily, there’s a solution to protect your interior from anything that comes its way and keep it looking brand new. That solution is all-weather floor mats.
What are All-Weather Floor Mats?
Although your vehicle most likely came out of the factory already outfitted with floor mats, these mats are mostly just for show. In other words, they don’t do a great job of repelling liquid, mud, or other debris that may find its way into the carpet of your ride. Installing aftermarket floor mats can help. These mats are not only higher quality, but are also more protective.
All-weather floor mats are made from an advanced rubber-like Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) that can endure a variety of elements. Rain and pebble-filled mud is no threat to these durable car accessories. You’re also protected from snow and slush in the extremely rare case that happens in Southern California. The design of the mats feature deep ruts that can trap debris, preventing it from ever reaching your interior carpet.
Cleaning the mats is easy, too. Just gently slide them out of your ride, and dump the liquid or debris onto the sidewalk. Wipe them down, and you’re ready to hit the road again.
These are the perfect investment for anyone who loves to explore the outdoors, get a little messy, or just wants their vehicle to stay in great condition.
How All-Weather Floor Mats Protect Your Vehicle
All-weather floormats let you relax behind the wheel. Your coffee cup spilling onto the ground isn’t nearly as much of a hassle, and you won’t have to worry about your passengers’ rainy shoes ruining the interior of your ride. All-weather floor mats can act as a safety net and help you make the most of every ride.
You may think that spilling a little bit of water in your vehicle is no big deal, and you might feel tempted to just let it air dry. The truth is, everyday spills can take a huge toll on your car’s interior.
If the moisture reaches the floor of your car, it could potentially form mold and cause serious damage to the mechanical and electrical system. If the water gets into the electrical system, it may seep into the distributor caps and prevent the distributor from sending electrical signals to the spark plugs.
All-weather floor mats can avert this from occurring and give you peace of mind that your interior systems are safe from any damage.
We all love that new car smell, and all-weather floor mats can help you keep it for as long as possible. When dirt gets matted into your interior carpet, it can start to stink up your ride. Or, moisture from a spill can give your car a stale, pungent stench.
Aftermarket all-weather floor mats have virtually no smell, and they’ll discreetly work to fight off any odors you don’t want to take over your vehicle.
Elements are Easy to Remove
The design of some floor mats, like carpeted ones, can make it difficult to remove any water, spills, or leaks that your interior may encounter. You might find yourself trying every cleaning product on the shelf to scrub out that coffee stain.
All-weather mats make it extremely easy to remove these elements from your ride, and they’ll catch them before they have a chance to damage your interior carpet. Simply pull out the mat, clean it off, and it’s like it was never even there!
