It’s not exactly practical to bring a welcome mat with you everywhere you park your car to wipe your shoes on before you get in. That means that you’re basically forced to track in whatever is on your shoes into your car every time you climb in. That means mud, snow, water, dirt, rocks, sand, dog uh… deposits. You get the idea. Do you want all that on your nice carpet? That’s why most of the cars around our office are rocking all weather floor mats. Clean up couldn’t be easier, and no nasty stains to worry about. Sounds great, right?
At their simplest, all weather car mats are just rubber mats that you throw down over your carpet, and let them catch all the debris that you and your family track in. At the top of the heap, though, you’ve got weatherproof floor mats from brands like Husky, Weathertech, and 3D Maxpider who offer exact fit, custom molded mats to fit the exact contour of your specific make and model’s floor. This ensures there is no slippage, and everything is contained and held in to protect your carpet as best as possible short of covering your entire interior with protective plastic like your grandma’s couch.
All weather floor mats are available for most any car on the market today, and worst case scenario, we sell universal mats that can be trimmed to fit just about anything you have. In order to prevent these all weather car mats from slipping around, these manufacturers will tie into factory mount points, or use things like velcro or sharp plastic cleats that dig in to your carpet to hold everything in place. Even if you’re climbing in with big, wet, snow covered boots, these all weather mats aren’t going anywhere, and you’ll have plenty of grip getting in and out as well.
By using rubber or plastic materials, these weatherproof floor mats will stop just about anything short of some kind of acid spill, but if that’s a worry for you, then you might have bigger problems. With carpet there is always the risk of not only staining the carpet floor mat, but the carpet underneath, which can hurt resale value when it comes time to move onto your next car. All weather floor mats solve those issues and actually look nice in the process, showing that you actually care about what happens to your car.
