As mentioned above, the footwell of our car has to face high loads. With our shoes, we bring dirt from the road, wetness, sand or mud into the car every time we get in, and of course this gets directly onto the textile floor mats. So we need a doormat that is very resilient, durable, stain resistant and looks chic.
Velour floor mats are made of polyamides or polypropylene. Both materials have the required properties that are important for textile floor mats. Likewise, this textile product is provided with a so-called pile, so that the velour floor mats feel soft and produce a matte sheen. In addition, the most common textile floor mats are provided with a rubberized undersurface, which is intended to prevent slipping on the car carpet.
Unlike textile floor mats made of needle felt, velour floor mats are easier to clean, look higher quality and give the most comfort due to their soft surface. Textile floor mats made of needle felt, on the other hand, score points with their somewhat lower price and allow dirt to "disappear" better due to the long fibers.
Floor mats made of velour are the common variant in the car for spring and summer. As soon as it gets rainier and colder, that is in autumn and winter, you should buy rubber mats, instead of textile floor mats. These are even better for the wet days, as well as snow and mud.
We distinguish velour floor mats between custom-fit textile floor mats and floor mats in the car as a universal solution. If you prefer the custom-fit version, please pay attention to the vehicle data we provide when ordering and compare it with your vehicle registration document. The attachment of the floor mats to the floor of your car corresponds to the original attachment.
Floor mats for the car as a universal solution fit most vehicles. Pay attention to the size of the velour floor mats and measure the footwell of your car if necessary. Most often, the manufacturers of the universal solution do not provide suitable fastening options. However, they have been produced to prevent slipping as much as possible. If this is not enough, you can additionally buy appropriate fastening options for the floor mats in the car individually.
In our store you will find velour floor mat sets from our own brand WS-AUTOTEILE and from manufacturer SCHÖNEK generally as a 4-piece complete package for the front and rear areas of your car. Likewise, we offer variants with additional mats (up to 6-piece) for the trunk and center divider. For minibuses and coupes there are the corresponding 2-piece sets.
In order to be able to guarantee high durability, the velour floor mats offered by us all offer additional reinforcement in the driver's area. This minimizes wear and tear and you will enjoy your textile floor mats longer.
To clean the velour floor mats in case of normal dirt, we recommend first to remove the coarse dirt from the textile floor mats and then to vacuum them thoroughly. Then process the surfaces with a textile cleaner ,which you can get for example from the manufacturer SONAX. You can also find the appropriate cleaning products in our store. It also removes unpleasant odors and brings long-lasting freshness, which makes the textile floor mats look like new.
If the soiling of the velour floor mats is stronger and more stubborn, you can use a carpet cleaner or steam cleaner. If you do not have either of them at hand, you can usually borrow the appropriate device at the hardware store.
When cleaning floor mats made of velour in the washing machine should be careful. Some can actually be cleaned in the washing machine with low temperatures and spin rate. However, not all floor mats are suitable for this, because too many plastic parts are incorporated. Then there is a risk that the floor mats for the car, no matter whether as floor mats in the car universal or fit, could warp or roll up at the edges. This not only looks unsightly, but is additionally dangerous in road traffic.
To minimize new soiling and the penetration of moisture, you can additionally protect the velour floor mats with a impregnation textile spray. In this way, you additionally increase the service life of your textile floor mats.
Select and properly handle velour floor mats is not difficult. A high-quality look of the footwell and additional comfort do not cost a fortune. Let our customer support advise, should you still have questions or uncertainties with the fit of your new textile floor mats.
