Most drivers swear by mats in the footwell. There are several reasons for this. Among others the following:
Without floor mats, the interior of your vehicle will be more stressed. Especially in the cold and wet seasons, dirt and wetness can lead to discoloration in the long run. If too much moisture gets into the passenger compartment, it can get to the underside of the car and thus promote the formation of rust. In addition, loose car floor mats are more practical for car cleaning, as they can easily be removed from the car.
The functions of the floor mats in the car as well as their application possibilities depend on the type of floor mats. Aluminium and leather car mats are rarely used. Mainly two types of car mats are used:
Textile floor mats consist, as the name suggests, of textile materials such as velour or felt. These are manufactured with a plastic fibre such as polypropylene, polyamide or polyester. This makes them more robust and easier to clean than other textile materials. The advantage of textile mats is mainly their appearance, as they look better than car rubber mats. However, they also offer a safety function. If the driver has wet shoes, the floor mat can absorb moisture to a certain degree. This reduces the risk of the driver slipping off the pedal. A disadvantage, however, is that the textile floor mats absorb too much moisture and thus provide a breeding ground for germs. They can also cause the windows to mist up in winter. Therefore textile mats are often used in summer, when it tends to be drier.
In autumn / winter, on the other hand, many drivers fall back on car rubber mats. These consist of a rubber material and are produced by vulcanization. Their advantages are that they are easy and quickest to clean and insensitive to moisture and dirt. However, they are more practical and less comfortable. They also smell of rubber. Therefore, many do not like them, although they are much more practical than textile floor mats.
In principle, all car mats should have an anti-slip coating on the underside. If this is not available, the mats can slip while driving and jam the pedals or similar. Good floor mats for the car, on the other hand, cannot slip due to their coating and thus ensure greater road safety.
Likewise, care must be taken to ensure clean processing, especially at the edges. In addition, it is advantageous if the mats have a reinforcement in the heel area of the rider and thus offer additional kick protection. Of course, the fit is very important. Check in the restrictions whether the mats are also suitable for your vehicle. If the original mats are attached to the floor with clips, make sure that the new floor mats are also supplied with fastening clips.
The boot is also constantly exposed to heavy loads. Every loading and unloading, every back and forth movement of purchases, tools, etc. leaves traces in the long run. If wetness and dirt are added, the trunk quickly looks worn out. Here, too, it is worth using boot mats. Who sets also here on quality, receives trunk mats, which slip neither on the trunk floor nor by moving of articles on the mat neither. They give it also fit exactly for your car and are also super easy to clean.
