How to Clean Rubber Floor Mats

Rubber floor mats are rugged and offer advanced protection for your interior. The process for how to clean rubber floor mats differs from other types of floor mats and is often a bit easier.

  • Vacuum
  • Rubber floor mat cleaner solution
  • Stiff-bristle brush
  • Hose or bucket of water
  • Microfiber towel 
  • Space to hang your mats to dry

Once you have your kit ready, learning how to clean rubber floor mats is a very straightforward process. See how to clear your floor mats like a pro below:

How to Clean Carpet Floor Mats

Learning how to clean car floor mats that are carpet can be a more challenging proposition. While the process is similar to cleaning rubber floor mats, your supplies will be more specialized. You’ll want to find a carpet floor mat cleaner rather than an all-purpose or rubber-specific solution.

  • Shake your floor mats and brush away any large debris
  • Vacuum your carpet mats
  • Use the carpet floor mat cleaner according to the instructions
  • Scrub the mats to remove any stains or hard-to-remove debris
  • Rinse completely with hose or bucket of water
  • If you have access to a wet vac, utilize that at this stage
  • Hang your mats to dry and— again— replace when fully dry
