This carpet is usually separate from the other carpet in the vehicle but some vehicle types such as vans may use one piece that spans the whole vehicle.

Vinyl and rubber floor covering is a material that can be used instead of carpet in a vehicle as its flooring. These two materials are especially common in trucks and other heavy duty vehicles that are especially prone to getting dirty. Since these materials are more slick and don’t have crevices that dirt and mud can hide in, it is extremely easy to clean and maintain. Since this flooring is slick and doesn’t create much resistance when things such as shoes are slid on it, the material will wear much less which means that it will last much longer than other popular alternatives such as carpet. The slick surface also keeps liquids from seeping through to the padding layer beneath which can cause mold damage in some severe cases. To provide some grip on this surface, a pattern of lines or boxes will usually be used which. These groves may also help guide and liquid buildup on the surface to a specific spot so that the shoe is not getting soaked whenever going to press on a pedal. Continue Reading -->
