Stains and Spills
Life's little messes can leave a big mark on your interior. Spilled sodas and cups of coffee can permanently stain your carpet and decrease your car's resale value.

Dirt and Grime

Plus, heavy foot traffic smears clumps of mud and grime into your carpet and ruins your interior. Construction vehicles are especially susceptible to damage from dirt and mud. However, you can keep your carpet protected by installing a set of Car Floor Mats. If your vehicle is exposed to dirt and grime on a daily basis, consider the Husky Weatherbeater. This all weather mat is made of durable thermoplastic that stands up to dirt, motor oil, and even battery acid.

Every Day Wear & Tear
Even if you keep your interior spotless, unprotected carpets are still susceptible to wear. Chances are you've seen worn-down heel marks on the driver's side carpet in many vehicles. By simply resting shoes and heels against your carpet, you're exposing it to harmful friction. Friction grates away at your carpet, leaving it drab, faded, and torn. This wear lowers your vehicle's resale value and can be very costly to repair. Car floor liners from brands like Lloyd Mats and Husky Liner act as a buffer between you carpet and your feet, and will help slow down the wear process. Many even feature extra heel pads near the pedals to stand up to heavy foot traffic.
