Your family and your car will thank you for it!
Garage floors are like magnets for dirt, mud and all kinds of stains. It's not just that you drive your car onto them, but arguably the dirtiest things you own are stored there: the lawnmower, cans of oil and gas, swimming pool chemicals, grubby tool boxes and so on. There's an ongoing deterioration happening, with the floor being a victim of leaks, impact from heavy items and driving a weighty car or truck in and out. Even though concrete is not as porous as sandstone, it still manages to absorb plenty of material. If you've never heard of garage floor covers, listen up because the answer to your unsightly floor nightmares is out there.
There's a flooring solution for every room in the house, and garages are no different. Just because concrete has been the material of choice for generations, doesn't make it perfect. Now you can go shopping for a range of garage floor covers - mats - that will turn your indoor parking spot into a special room in its own right. And hey, if you're a car enthusiast and you spend a fortune on security, products for polishing your custom wheels and keeping the interior spic n span, you'll appreciate being able to line the floor with something durable and attractive.
Garage floor covers are protective polyvinyl mats that prevent spills from soiling the concrete any further. If your floor has had a few coatings of paint, the covers will safeguard it from scratches and peeling. They are available in several designs for aesthetic and practical reasons. A diamond tread pattern will help to contain liquid messes, coin style is excellent for cushioning and the channel pattern enables sweeping and hosing out the garage with ease.
Since garage floor covers are simply laid in place, and are not affixed with adhesives, they can be taken outside for scrubbing and washing with detergent and water if necessary, and can even be removed and taken to a new residence when you move house. After all, they're so tough, they'll last for years.
Being polyvinyl, the mats are waterproof, virtually indestructible and feature a vapor barrier so no mildew or mold will form underneath. They are also non-slip so they afford protection in an environment that has the potential to be quite hazardous. The cushioning adds an element of sound insulation, just as carpet does on the interior of your home.
So with all these features and benefits, garage floor covers should be one of the easiest auto accessories to 'sell' to the lady of the house. You can tell her it's as much for her as for yourself and give her the sales pitch. Once it's installed, she'll love it as much as you do.
