When we plan to buy car floor mats, we will find that there are different kinds of car mats with different kinds of materials on the market. For example, you may find rubber car mats, PVC car mats and carpet car mats out there. And today we will introduce rubber car mats to you.


Generally speaking, there are three types of rubber materials for rubber car mats, environment-friendly rubber, ordinarily rubber and return rubber. Rubber car mats with environment-friendly material can reach Rosh standards, no bad smell and very safe, rubber car mats with ordinarily material have no smell, but they are unable to reach Rosh standard, and rubber car mats with return material always have a bad smell, and no environmental protection.


Rubber car mats are durable. They are effectively blocking sand, water, snow among other debris. A set of very new rubber car mats are good for two years. However, after 3 to 5 years of usage, the mats will perish with age. And then you need a set of new rubber car mats.

Easy to clean

Much different from carpet car mats, rubber car mats are very easy to clean, rubber car mats’ surface is against water and impurities, if you plan to clean your mats, all what you need to do is washing the mats with water before a drying. And you never need to clean the mats like cleaning carpet car mats with cleansing fluid.

Good price

Finally, rubber car mats are good at prices. The rubber itself is not a very expensive material. And there is no hard requirement during manufacturing process. So the price for a set of rubber car mats is cheap as well.
