A Few Reasons That You Might Want to Consider Garage Floor Mats

If you are particularly picky about what the final product looks like, you might want to take a look at garage floor tile or epoxy garage floor paint, but if the main priority is to get things done without staining the concrete, you should consider garage floor mats. Although, keep in mind, this may not be your best option for the long term. Here is a bit of information to help you understand why some people decide on using a mat as opposed to paint or tiles, to help you choose the best garage flooring for you.

Some Mats Can Be Cheap

Your cheapest option could very well be a small mat. But only a compartment mat. Compartment mats are useful when you want to protect a small area of your concrete garage floor and prevent stains and damage. There are also parking mats, as well as complete garage mats, but neither of those are exactly inexpensive. Even compartment mats can start climbing price wise if you go for an expensive one with a lot of features, such as liquid absorption and the tall concrete edges. However, when it comes down to it, mats are really the only way you can protect garage floors for less than $60 without a ton of install time, like with an epoxy coating.

Installation Is As Easy As It Gets

One might think this was obvious, but you do have to realize that not everyone considers just how hard applying an epoxy garage floor coating can really be. After they read the directions, a lot of people start calling contractors, which kind of defeats the purpose of an epoxy kit. Buying a cheap, simple mat is very easy. You might find yourself spending more time picking one out than installing.

Garage Floor Mats Can Cover Extremely Damaged Concrete

Sometimes there really is no choice; a thoroughly damaged or stained concrete floor makes it impossible to install either epoxy or peel and stick garage floor tiles. In this case, you only have two options: interlocking tiles, or a mat of some sort. One thing you will notice when browsing interlocking tiles is that they are expensive. Even small sets, which really compare more to compartment mats than anything, can cost upwards of $300. Unless you're going for a specific look, I can't see how that would be worth the price.

Garage Floor Mats Make Cleanup A Breeze

Some mats will actually absorb any liquid, either oils or thinner stuff, like water, which is great since you can just take it and wring it out later. It's an especially green solution as well since you can basically pick up your spilled chemicals and deposit them in a safe place. Even if it doesn't absorb liquids, if it has raised edges, you can still do this to some degree. Being able to literally relocate your mess is great. Will that actually matter in your case? Well, how often do you make messes?
