What Is A Car Mat?
A car mat is simply a covering that you can lay over your genuine car molded carpet flooring for its protection.
A car mat can be made of rubber, polymer, carpeting, aluminium, and many different materials.
Car mats protect your car’s original molded carpet flooring from water, stains, dirt, food, salt corrosion, and other waste materials. Without car floor mats, your vehicle will get dirty in no time.
Car mats come in various designs and colors to match car interiors. Also, you can purchase car mats in custom as well as universal fittings to perfectly fit your car.
Are Car Mats Necessary?
Yes, they are necessary if you want to keep your car neat and clean. Plus, car mats also save a lot of money from professional cleaning or replacing the original car molded carpet.
The original car molded carpet flooring is composed of 80% rayon and 20% nylon, usually arranged in a loop, cut-pile, and Essex formation.
You can say molded carpets are like little strands of hair that are either cut at the end or folded in a loop to catch dirt and spillage of any kind.
In short, molded carpets are excellent for catching dust, mud, moisture, food, and other waste products, which also means they get dirty quickly and are very hard to clean.
But if you use car mats, you will get the following benefits over your original molded carpet;
⦁ Car mats catch the same amount of debris and spillages as original molded carpet
⦁ Car mats are easy to pick up and clean every day than fixed original molded carpet
⦁ Car mats are way cheaper than original molded carpet when you consider replacement
⦁ Car mats keep your car from foul-smelling, but original molded carpet can never become smell-proof
⦁ You can clean car mats at home, while original molded mats need expensive professional cleaning
⦁ Car mats are very healthy for lung disease persons because original molded carpet catch and release a lot of dust in the car
⦁ You can choose car mats color and design according to your liking, while original molded mats come in mostly 1 or 2 colors
Are Car Mats Odorless?
Yes, all STE car floor mats are odorless, especially rubber car mats, which are mostly foul-smelling when you buy them from cheap brands.
We know that foul-smelling car mats cause headaches, nausea, and other irritating conditions, so we use premium quality DOP ( Dioctyl Phthalate ) chemicals in the manufacturing of rubber, PVC, and other materials car mats.
We at STE have 150 tons capacity 4 large-sized tanks for DOP storage while other local brands do not or have very little DOP storage ability. Some brands even use cheap chemicals in the production of car floor mats which make them foul-smelling.
DOP gives flexibility to rubber, PVC, e.t.c, vehicle mats for extra durability. Also, DOP makes car mats soft to provide higher comfort to your feet.
Do Car Mats Fit All Cars?
Yes, car mats can fit all cars, but you need to buy the exact kind for your vehicle. Car mats come in two kinds;
⦁ Universal Car Mats
⦁ Custom Fit Car Mats
Universal Car Mats: Universal car mats sometimes are also called trimmable car mats. When you buy them, they may not fit your car; you need to cut them at specific lengths according to your car floor space. They are easy to cut and install. They also come in various styles, colors, materials, qualities, and many more features. They are also cheaper than custom car floor mats. They may or may not fit your car precisely, but they will be fit enough to do the job.
Custom Fit Car Mats: As the name describes, they are specifically manufactured for a particular vehicle or a group of vehicles. They will fit your car 99.999% precisely. They are also easy to install. They are a little more expensive than universal car mats. You can buy custom car mats in any design, color, material, quality, and other features. You must see the packing to match your vehicle category for custom-fit car mats because they are not trimmable.
Are Car Mats Dangerous?
No, car mats are not dangerous unless they stay in their place.
Car mats are dangerous if they get over the gas pedal, which happens due to two reasons;
⦁ Low-quality car mats
⦁ The careless placing of car mats
Low-quality car mats: Some manufacturers produce low-quality car mats with no adhering agents under them, such as with no spikes, hooks, e.t.c. These adhering structures keep mats from moving around, especially during acceleration and braking. In this way, adhering agents will prevent car mats from getting over the gas pedal and ensure safety.
The careless placing of car mats: Sometimes, you buy the wrong custom-fit car mats or do not trim universal mats carefully. In both cases, you will get loosely fit car mats that can move around irrespective of their quality. The freely moving mats may get over gas pedals and cause accidents. So, buy or cut them properly. Also, precisely place car mats and keep checking them regularly to avoid mishaps.
They are entirely safe as long as you avoid the above two carelessness.
You can also buy after-market hooks such as eagle claw hooks, e.t.c if your car does not have built-in hooks.
These after-market hooks are easy to install;
⦁ First, puncture a hole in your new car mat if there not already present
⦁ Secondly, take a hook and embedded it into the place where the carpet is thick
⦁ Thirdly, attach a hook to the carpet.
⦁ At last, push it down with your foot to ensure it is well embedded into the carpet.
How To Install Car Floor Mats?
Car floor mats are very easy to install.
You can follow the below steps to install custom fit or universal car mats in your specific car;
⦁ Cleaning the Original Molded Carpet with STE Car Vacuum Cleaner: First, clean the original molded carpet completely before putting car mats on it to prevent any kind of foul-smelling or wear of your molded carpet. Plus, it will also help to keep your car mat in place without moving for safety.
⦁ Push the seat Back: Push the car seats back to get as much space as possible to see clearly.
⦁ Classify car mats side: Classify car mat sides separately, such as separate driver side mat, passenger side mat, e.t.c.
⦁ Identify Car Mat Kind: Identify if your car mat is either custom-fit or universal. You can place custom-fit car mats directly in your car without any cutting because they are sized according to your car specifically. But,
If your car mat is Universal, follow the next steps;
⦁ Mark the Car Mats: You can mark the car mat in two ways according to your car size, either place old mats ( if available ) on the new mats or put new mats directly on the car floor and mark them. During marking, keep in mind, mark them only at the guided lines from the seller.
⦁ Cut the Car Mats: When done marking, cut the car mats with a scissor or a cutter precisely and carefully. Undercutting is always more preferable to overcutting.
⦁ Place the Car mats: After cutting, place the mats on the vehicle floor and see if they need more trimming or not. That’s all you are done installing your car mat.
What Is The Price Of Car Mats?
The price of car mats depends upon many factors such as material, design, logo, color, quality, and other features.
We at STE factory have 24 injection molding machines to manufacture 250,000 sets of car mats per month.

The average price range of STE vehicle floor mats is: $2 – $15
How Long Do Car Floor Mats Last?
The lifespan of your cat mats depends upon many factors;
⦁ Frequency of Use
⦁ Quality of Material
⦁ Care during Cleaning
Material: Rubber, vinyl, PVC, metallic, and TPE kinds of car mats usually last for up to 5 years, while carpet mats last for up to 2 years with average use.
Frequency of Use: If you are an average user and mostly drive alone, you can expect a long life from your car mat. But if you are a family person or someone with many passengers every day, the car floor mats will wear out in a short period.
Quality of Material: Some manufacturers use cheap raw materials to save production costs, but the lifespan of car mats decreases. But STE always uses premium quality raw materials to offer the maximum lifespan of car mats.
Care during Cleaning: How often you clean your car mats also significantly define the life of your car mats. Dirty car mats will wear out soon due to sharp particles or chemicals under your feet. Plus, carpet mats should be clean with more care, such as never using a local brush on a carpet mat, or fibers will get disarranged, and it will look bad.
How Do I Choose A Car Floor Mat?
