How to Clean Carpeted Floor Mats

When learning how to clean carpeted floor mats, some professional car detailers prefer to use hot water extractors or steam cleaners to shampoo carpet floor mats. Even though a steam cleaner can disinfect your vehicle’s interior, you can also use these to deep clean your floor mats, but they aren’t necessary. Here’s a more basic way to clean your carpet mats:

  • Use a wet/dry vacuum
  • Apply carpet floor mat cleaner with a spray bottle
  • Apply a stain remover with a scrub brush if needed
  • Use a hose or bucket of water on a terry cloth or cotton towel to wipe away soap and debris

How to Clean Rubber Floor Mats

Learning how to clean rubber floor mats at home only takes a few cleaning items that you probably have readily available in Glendora. Everyday cleaning supplies and methods can clean rubber floor mats:

  • Vacuum your floor mats and shake them out to remove debris.
  • Spray down your mats with water. You don’t need to saturate them, but if you have access to a warm, dry space and time to let them fully dry out without getting moldy, you can get them fairly wet, as water will help encapsulate dirt.
  • Scrub your mats to agitate. Then, spray them all over with floor-mat cleaner or all-purpose cleaner. Agitate again and let sit if there are stubborn stains. 
  • Rinse your mats off. Squeeze out the water with your hand, a ruler, or a squeegee. 
  • Re-fluff the carpeting pile and inspect your mats. If there are stubborn stains, use a dedicated stain remover and blot with a towel, then spot rinse.
  • Remove excess water by towel drying. Then, leave your damp mats to dry in the sun or somewhere warm and dry.
