The material is generally stain resistant and water proof meant to serve for a long time.
Carpet car floor mats: A carpet floor mat is generally made of synthetic fibers woven to produce a beautiful product meant to trap dust and dirt. Carpeted floor mats often come along with the purchase of a new car. They are matched with the interiors of the car and hence impart a sophisticated look to the vehicle. The quality of the fibers and the density of weave determine the mat's effectiveness at trapping dust and dirt. This type of mat is most effective in a climate with moderate to low rainfall levels.
Clear Floor mats: The clear car mat is an external piece of vinyl that is cut and spread over the existing mat of the car. This is usually done to reduce wear of the original mat and increase longitivity. The material of the vinyl should be chosen keeping in mind its thickness and durability.
