Keep Your Interior Clean Using Floor Mats

How is it the carpool commute seems to get longer as the week wears on – even longer still when you hear "uh-oh" drift up from the back seat. From ice cream and soda pop to gum and felt pens, the interior of your vehicle takes a regular beating. On top of that, throw in the damage inflicted by daily wear and tear as well as the environmental forces that can leave your floorboards soaked, stained and even moldy. Keep your interior clean with a solid set of performance-grade car mats.

The stock floor mats that came with the vehicle work great…as long as you're okay with rain, mud and other spilled liquids running off the edges and all over the vehicle. Sure, they match your interior but that's about all they do.

Performance-grade floor mats prevent dirt, sand, rocks and other detritus from spreading throughout your car or truck. Also known as auto mats, car floor mats and truck floor mats are computer-designed for a precise, custom-tailored fit that provides maximum coverage and protection without obstructing your floor controls. More importantly, many styles now include tall outer ridges, preserving your upholstery by containing the liquid messes that result from wet weather or spilled beverages.

The best car floor mats, including Ford F-150 floor mats, are uniquely tailored to your make, model and year. They're constructed from heavy-duty rubberized thermo-plastic and other durable materials to protect your floorboards from a wide range of damaging and corrosive elements that would otherwise stain or ruin your interior and resale value.

Floor mats come in a variety of styles and colors, including all-weather floor mats, nylon floor mats and rubber car mats as well as those that feature popular sport franchise and auto logos, allowing you to inject style and personality into your interior. They're available in 1-piece or 2-piece designs to easily accommodate any interior and are a snap to hose off when they become soiled, with some even pre-treated with Scotchgard to further resist dirt and stains. And if you've ever spent the better part of your weekend trying to shampoo a Slurpee or road grease out of your floorboards, the value here is clear.

For the ultimate in protection, pair a set of auto mats with a cargo liner. Just like car floor mats, they provide the same protection against resale-sabotaging dangers for the cargo area of your SUV or wagon. Especially beneficial to those owning pets, cargo liners are similar to all-weather floor mats in that many are constructed with smart grooves and tall side walls that trap mud, moisture and leaky messes. They also provide the added benefit of protecting the floorboards of your cargo area against wear and tear from shifting cargo.
