How to Clean Rubber Floor Mats

Cedar Park drivers who love off-roading adventures often opt for rubber floor mats, as they go a long way in protecting vehicles from snow, mud, and other debris. 

Here’s how to clean rubber floor mats: 

  1. Start by removing the mats from your vehicle. 
  2. Shake them vigorously and then vacuum up any leftover dirt or crumbs.
  3. Rinse the mats with clean water, then apply a cleanser designed for rubber mats. 
  4. Using a stiff bristle brush, gently scrub to remove caked-on grime, mud, or other substances. 
  5. Rinse the mats clean.
  6. Wipe dry with a microfiber towel, or hang mats up to dry. Once they are completely dry, place back in your vehicle. 

How to Clean Carpet Floor Mats

Many Georgetown vehicles come standard with manufacturer-issued carpet floor mats. Cleaning carpet mats takes a little more elbow grease than their rubberized counterparts, but it’s still a manageable job. Here’s how to clean carpet floor mats: 

  1. Start by removing the mats from your vehicle. 
  2. Shake the mats or hit against a hard surface to loosen buried dirt and particles, and then use a vacuum to suck up the rest. 
  3. Apply a carpet cleaner to your floor mats, following the application directions.
  4. Use a stiff brush to scrub the mats and remove any stains and ground-in debris. 
  5. Rinse thoroughly.
  6. If available, use a wet vac to get an even deeper clean. In addition to removing more dirt, wet vacs suck out water and cut down your mats’ drying time. 
  7. Hang your mats to dry and place back in your vehicle when ready.
