The superabsorbent properties of a chamoix leather are quite amazing, with the ability to get rid of all that water when you are rubbing your car down. Most of the time, we only do this when we are giving our vehicle the weekly spruce up, especially when the neighbors can complete us about our work. Sometimes, we wish that we could employ a giant cloth to get rid of the mess that accumulates on the garage floor, when we return from a trip in the rain.
Due to the amount of water and associated mud and dirt that falls off our vehicle whenever we return from a trip in the rain, we need some kind of super absorbent giant chamoix leather on the garage floor! Surely this would save us having to clean up all that mess, when all we want to do is relax by the TV.
Polypropylene is a superabsorbent that is just as efficient as the chamoix leather in many respects. Incorporated into a purpose made garage floor mat, the polypropylene retains all the water and the associated muck that falls from the car when we get back from our trip. While you will not pick up the mat and wring it out like you would with a leather, of course, the moisture that is kept inside will simply evaporate over time.
The garage is a favorite place to store important things. Sometimes we need to keep records, like tax papers, for seven years at a time. Imagine the look of horror on your face when you need to find these records, only to discover that rainwater from the garage floor had destroyed them. Now you can see the value of a superabsorbent, can not you?
Garage floor mats were specifically designed as an automobile accessory, due to the problem of water damage within this room. You can find them in a variety of stock sizes or get them purpose made to fit and they are also designed to be friendly to the eye, typically produced in a neutral color like charcoal gray.
Remember that water accumulating on your garage floor can be potentially dangerous hazard, especially in the winter. If you slip and fall, or a guest does, you may have more problems than you want, so look for a purpose made mat to absorb the water and have a nonslip, vinyl base as well.
Of course, if your garage is so full of junk that you can not park your car inside, you do not need a superabsorbent garage floor mat. It's probably time to be more efficient and clean up this room and not leave your vehicle to the mercy of the elements, year round.
We hear so much about the value of our homes these days and wonder when the downward trend will stop. In the meantime, do everything that you can do retain this value, by looking after your house and garage alike.
