Husky Liners Heavy Duty Floor Mats
Whether you’re going on off-road adventures in your SUV or using the family minivan to drive your kids to school, keeping your automobile’s interior clean is a difficult, but necessary chore. The best way to extend the aesthetic life of your car or truck is to keep your interior clean in the first place, and nothing takes a bigger beating than your floor carpet. For this purpose there have always been floor mats, but usually they either don’t do their job, or they are just as hard to clean as the carpet itself.
If regular floor mats just aren’t cutting it for you, then it might be time to consider a Husky Heavy Duty Floor Mat. Husky Liners is a company specializing in protecting your automobile’s interior from wear and tear, and their Heavy Duty Floor Mats are considered the best floor mats by automotive reviewers. While you might be thinking a floor mat is just a floor mat, the Husky brand offers several unique features compared to other brands.
First of all, Husky Heavy Duty Floor Mats are made out of a poly vinyl chloride material, which is why they boast the name Heavy Duty, and all of Husky’s floor mats are guaranteed not to crack or break for life, so you don’t have to worry about wearing them out. Of course the fact that they’re guaranteed not to break isn’t worth much if they don’t keep your floors clean, and Husky’s Heavy Duty Floor Mats perform as best as can be expected, with higher ridges than competing brands (3/8-inch for all models), and a ½-inch outer rim to trap dirt, mud, snow, and whatever else you get stuck to the bottom of your boots. The pattern of the ridges also factors into their efficiency, with a diamond pattern for their trucks and SUVs (ideal for catching heavier substances like mud), and a bar pattern for vans and cars. Both styles are easy to clean; you just pull them out, hose them off, and let them dry in the sun. It’s important to note that Husky discourages using any kind of cleaning protectant on them as it can make them slippery, and frankly just isn’t needed. Husky’s Heavy Duty Floor Mats also have a thicker pad on the driver’s side for under the pedals, which is the spot most likely to wear out, so you really don’t have to worry about going easy on them.
Installation in most cases requires no work whatsoever from the owner: Husky’s floor mats are sold based on the make and model of your automobile, so they are pretty close to an exact fit, despite not being completely custom made. In some cases a little trimming might be required for a perfect fit, but Husky’s floor mats have cut out areas around the edges to make them easy to trim in a matter of minutes, and should accommodate any variation needed for your automobile. The backs of the Heavy Duty Floor Mats also have little nubs (Husky claims they are “patent pending”, though I’m not sure what makes them so special) to keep them in place, so you don’t have to worry about them shifting under foot pressure, which can be both annoying and dangerous. They also come in three colors to match the interior of most automobiles: black, grey, and tan. While style is certainly not as important as functionality, Husky’s Heavy Duty Floor Mats look good too – especially when you get that perfect fit – so you don’t have to worry about the inside of your car looking too sterile: they blend in reasonably well.
Husky Heavy Duty Floor Mats should stand up to any amount of foot traffic or abuse you can throw at them. In fact, for the average driver they may be a bit of an overkill, but when it comes to keeping your interior in pristine condition, that long lasting durability works in your favor.
