The United States has one of the largest automotive markets in the world and is home to many global vehicles and auto parts manufacturers. Each vehicle has its own look and sometimes, that look isn’t right for everyone. What if that used SUV is perfect for the family but the trunk carpet is dirty or discolored? What if you’ve purchased an old school you’ve dreamt about but the flooring is a bit tattered? The carpet and flooring of all vehicles are important in maintaining a clean, unique or classic look and should be considered when restoring, replacing or purchasing a vehicle.
Replace Auto Carpet if 10 years or Older
Americans spend an average of 87 minutes a day in their cars. With so much time in the car, your vehicle is exposed to some pretty messy situations; mud from soccer cleats, juice from sippy cups, mud from rain and much more. Car carpets can get pretty nasty over time, particularly since 70% of drivers eat or drink in their cars. Your car carpet collect bits and pieces of your car’s activities and should be replaced at 10 years or older.

They offer over 200 colors of molded or cut and sewn auto carpet and they used six standard materials including loop, cut pile, nylon, gros point, tuxedo, truvette, and Daytona.
Keep Carpet Clean with Floor Mats
We’ve all experience the rain-soaked shoes getting into a vehicle. We scrape, shake and tap our shoes, but still leave behind dirt and streaks. The rain, dirt, mud, and snow all find their way onto the auto carpet at some point unless you use some kind of floor protection. Custom fit floor mats decrease the amount of gunk left in your carpets and help keep it clean.
According to ACC, cars have 17,000 times more bacteria than your home making them dirtier than most homes. There are plastic liners and paper mats that will work, but the plastic slides around and the paper gets soaked. Avoid the mushy paper and invest in car floor mats that fit your vehicle. Car floor mats generally come in two material options: rubber or carpet fabric. You can invest in mats that fit your cars original interior, or you can get custom mats that fit your unique style.
