Supplies You’ll Need to Clean Car Floor Mats

Make sure you have the right cleaning materials handy before getting started:

  • Rubber Floor Mats: Vacuum, rubber floor mat cleaner, stiff bristle brush, hose or bucket of water, microfiber towel, and a place to hang your mats to dry
  • Carpet Floor Mats: Vacuum, hose or bucket of water, brush, carpet floor mat cleaner, wet vac, and a place to hang your mats to dry

How to Clean Rubber Floor Mats

Rubber floor mats are easiest to clean and perfect for off-road enthusiasts and Asheville drivers who live in an area with a lot of sand, rain, or snow. Ensure they keep your cabin clean by washing your rubber floor mats frequently following these steps:

  1. Remove them from your Chevy before you clean them.
  2. Shake out the mats and vacuum up any remaining dirt and debris.
  3. Rinse the floor mats with clean water.
  4. Use a cleanser made for rubber mats and gently scrub them with a stiff bristle brush to remove any stubborn mud or grime.
  5. Rinse the mats completely clean.
  6. Hang them up to dry or dry your floor mats with a microfiber towel. Make sure they are entirely dry before placing them back in your Chevy.

How to Clean Carpet Floor Mats

The steps for properly cleaning your carpet floor mats are different than for rubber car mats. Here’s how to complete the job correctly:

  1. Remove the floor mats from your Chevy.
  2. Thoroughly vacuum the floor mats to remove dirt.
  3. Shake the floor mats against a hard surface to eliminate any stubborn dust and lingering dirt particles.
  4. Use a cleaner designed for carpet floor mats and follow the application directions for your specific cleaner.
  5. Scrub the mats carefully to remove any stains and ground-in debris.
  6. Rinse them completely.
  7. If you have access to a wet vac, vacuum your floor mats one more time. This helps remove any additional dirt and cuts the drying time.
  8. Hang your mats up to dry. Do not put them back in your vehicle until you are sure they are completely dry.
