Quick Troubleshooting Guide: Problems with Porsche Cayenne Floor Mats

You've been here, and you've done this-dismissing a simple vehicle interior problem like soiled and damaged floor mats. Who would even bother to pay attention to and exert painstaking effort on floor mats when you can just remove and replace them with a new one every few months or so? Why go through the trouble of trying to fix floor mat problems when people barely even notice them? Unlike other more noticeable interior accents like seat upholstery and a polished dashboard, floor mats are usually the last thing people notice when they step in a car. And that's usually because they're either: A. extremely dirty or B. brand new. If you're driving an ordinary vehicle, having a dirty and damaged floor mat is probably acceptable. But that's not the case if you own a Porsche Cayenne. For a luxury ride like yours, everything should be in pristine and spotless condition-right down to your Porsche Cayenne floor mats. So if you're having problems with your floor mats lately, it would be best to address them right away before they mess up your car's interior. Here's a quick troubleshooting guide to help you out:

Condensation

Heat from exhaust pipes and a clogged A/C system drain tube are the common culprits behind floor mat condensation problems. When trapped moisture is exposed to heat from your vehicle's exhaust pipes, it accumulates underneath the mats, causing extreme damage to the material that may require you to do extensive interior cleaning and maybe even get a replacement. Since there's really nothing much you can do to control the heat from the exhaust pipes, the next best thing you can do to prevent condensation is to clean your A/C system drain tube. Removing encrusted debris from the tube will help unclog it so that water won't flow back to your interior and ruin your prized Porsche Cayenne floor mats. For best results, give your carpet and mats at least a week to dry to completely eliminate trapped moisture.

Rubber smell

Newly purchased floor mats usually give off a strong rubber odor similar to chemicals that can cause mild headaches, especially in enclosed areas like your vehicle's interior. To eliminate this smell, soak your floor mats in a homemade solution of vinegar, ammonia, baking soda, and warm water. If some of the ingredients are not on hand, warm soapy water mixed with white vinegar may do the trick. Placing the mats in direct sunlight for at least three hours after you've cleaned them may also help neutralize the odor.

  • Keeping the Interior Clean: Tips in Maintaining Your Porsche Cayenne Floor Mats 27 February 2013

    Having a spic-and-span interior doesn't have to be costly. You don't need to take your Porsche to an auto detailing or cleaning shop every week just to keep your interiors pristine and polished. Start by cleaning your interior from the bottom before working your way up. First on your list should be your Porsche Cayenne floor mats. Performing regular maintenance on your mats is one of the easiest ways you can maintain the cleanliness and charm of your interior. Well-maintained floor mats will not only help absorb dirt better, but they will also spare you from unnecessary and costly replacement expenses. Here are a few tips in keeping your Porsche Cayenne floor mats in good condition:


    Clean your floor mats regularly.


    Since floor mats are constantly exposed to dirt, mud, road debris, and stains, you need to clean them regularly to prevent them from wearing out prematurely. Stained and soiled floor mats are unsightly and take away the charm of your interior, so you need to scrub them clean on a regular basis to help prevent dirt and dust buildup. Warm water mixed with mild dish detergent is effective in removing deposits and debris from the mats' surface. If the dirt is deeply embedded, you need to scrub it off vigorously using a soft-bristle brush. For stubborn stains and sticky residues like road tar, water spots, and salt deposits, vinegar and linseed oil will do the trick. To restore the shine of your floor mats and keep off dirt for a longer period of time, apply a non-greasy rubber treatment solution on the surface. Restoring your floor mats takes only around 30 minutes, so you can do it regularly even if you're running on a busy schedule.


    Remove dirt and debris from your A/C system drain tube.


    A clogged A/C system drain tube will cause moisture to flow back to your interior and accumulate under your floor mats. If not addressed immediately, moisture buildup can ultimately ruin the condition of the mats, forcing you to do extensive cleaning, and, in worst case scenarios, purchase replacements. To prevent this from happening, clean the A/C's drain tube regularly. This will not only prevent the tube from getting clogged, but it will also protect your floor mats from damage-inducing condensation.
