Purchase mats for interior and trunk. This will allow the most possible to protect the interior from dust and dirt. In addition, the mats wash much easier than a car. Keep in mind that they can be both universal and specially made for specific car model.
If you don't want to spend a lot of time and money for search of rugs, buy generic. But they will last very long, they often have to replace new. The mats are not perfectly lie on the floor of the cabin, even if they are cut along the contour of the "trough". But there is one big plus – the universal Mat can be bought in any supermarket.
Purchase floor mats specifically made for the brand of your car. Select the material from which made the floor mats. The most practical is rubber. Rubber mats protect the bottom car against the penetration of large amounts of moisture, thus preventing decay of the acoustic layer and corrosion of the metal. The original mats made of cloth have a much better ability to absorb excess moisture, as with rubber spikes on its basis.
But keep in mind that despite the convenience and low cost of rubber mats, they have a number of negative qualities. They are very badly bent (inelastic), break from freezing, have a lot of weight and keep unpleasant odors.
Try to use polyurethane mats. They can easily repeat a complex configuration of gender, have high sides, and weighs twice less than rubber, does not harden in the cold. Although polyurethane mats are expensive, they don't wear out and don't dry out from exposure to high temperatures.
Note the "mechanism" that prevents movement of the Mat on the floor. It may be different Velcro, hooks or other devices are securely attached to a rigid Foundation Mat.
Advice 2 : How to make mats in the car
In winter, the abundant use of road reagents is detrimental to shoes, and motorists suffer damaged tyres and floor mats interior. For three to four months, when the temperature drops below zero and the streets are handled by the agents, some drivers have time to change a few sets of mats for the car. But you can always find a way to save making mats with their hands.
Select the material from which you will produce floor mats for your car. It is best to use two layers – one for waterproofing, the second to protect the lower layer from exposure to reagents. Perfect rubber or plastic for the bottom and a dense textile fabric for the second.
To begin, make measurements. This can be done using a tape measure. By measuring the width and length of a place Mat, cut out a piece of paper and attach to the place, and then outline the irregularities of the edges of the space needed. This piece of paper can now be used as a template.
Another way of measuring is much easier – just draw over the old pad or use it as a stencil.
For the bottom layer get rubber sheet waterproofing at the hardware store or use a more suitable car Mat.
To the top apply a dense felt, an old rug or carpet, which is unlikely to be useful at your home (can be used as woolen and synthetic carpeting).
On the previously prepared stencil, apply the outline part of the Mat with chalk or an old remnant. Carefully cut along the contour of the applied part of the future of the Mat; the edge of the textile pieces should be treated with a match or lighter to primality appeared thread. It is necessary to ensure that our rug was not undone. Check that both layers of the pad coincide with each other. If there are irregularities, correct them with scissors.
On both layers of the Mat seal between them. This is best done using thick threads. Apply both layers exactly on top of each other and make a series of holes along the edge of the workpiece at a distance of about half an inch between them. The case remained for small – to with a thick needle and strong thread to sew the parts of the Mat together.
