Winterize Your Car

Screen Shot 2013-01-15 at 1.03.35 PMThe effects of cold winters are damaging to your car floor. Snow gets tracked inside, melting and turning it into water making your floor carpet wet, soggy and smelly. Salt used to melt ice is very damaging and because it is made of chemicals, it can erode through your car’s original carpet floor. Replacing your car’s carpet is time-consuming and can costs hundreds of dollars. While purchasing a deep cleaner starts at $100, doing the job yourself is also time-consuming. The best things you can do is stop the damage before it happens by investing in good all-weather car mats.

Heavy duty car mats such as RubberTite custom-fit weather mats are a solution to your winter car floor problems. Because the mats are made of rubber material, they are almost indestructible, so it’s nearly impossible to puncture and ice-melting salt will not affect it. They’re available for cars, trucks, vans, SUV’s and even trunk and cargo areas. Unlike most rubber car floor mats, the RubberTite mats will stay flexible even in sub-freezing temperatures and they won’t expand or contract with the weather.

Each mat is custom-fit to your car floors and has smooth little “cups” designed to trap in water, mud, snow, sand, etc. Rubber nib backing helps keep your mat in place and the texture provides a non-slippery surface. To clean, simply spray off with a hose and use a soft-bristle brush and a non-caustic chemical for those tougher spots. The RubberTite weather mats are available in 7 colors, including clear. These mats have a 5 year warranty and have the potential to last as long as your vehicle will.

Car mats are a small price to pay for saving your car’s interior. More information on RubberTite custom-fit weather mats along with a variety of other car floor mats can be found at http://matdepot.com/carmats.cfm

Protecting Your Floors in the Winter

Now that winter’s here, your floors will be going through some tough things. Making an investment in floor mats like the Aquatread and Scraper II could be the best decision you make thus far. 

Ice-melting salts, snow and water can damage your building’s carpet and floors; costing money to clean, extract water strip tile, hardwood or vinyl floors. 

When the Aquatread and Scraper II mats are used together, they will be most effective. The Scraper II mat, if placed outdoors, will get all the loose debris off your feet. While the Aquatread mat on the indoors, get off the rest of the debris, making your floors stay cleaner. Depending on the wear and tear of your mats, these should last about 5 years. Once they start showing obvious signs of wear and tear, you should replace them.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene is a plastic polymer. It’s used in structural goods such as food containers and file holders, but it is also used as a fiber in diapers and mats. The Aquatread mat is an example of this. Polypropylene is highly absorbent which is beneficial for the rain, snow or any spills that may occur. The Aquatread mats are easy to clean and don’t succumb to the effects of bleach as a cleaning agent, meaning the mat won’t lose it’s color. Polypropylene in these mats also lasts about 5 years and is good for either indoor or outdoor use.

For the most part, entrance mats get rid of most of the debris and water dragged in by tenants, customers, employees, etc. However, when you bring a wet umbrella into the building, water can drip everywhere. Investing in a wet umbrella bag stand can prevent injuries which can lead to legal trouble.

Simply set up the stand with the disposable complimentary umbrella bags and tenants, customers, employees, etc. can slip their umbrella in it to prevent any water from getting on the floor.

These stands and bags are priced from $50 and up from various suppliers & even come recyclable. Consider it an investment that reduces risks.
