However, if the mats get excessively dirty, take them outside and shake them to remove excess dirt and debris. If necessary use a hose (avoid extremely high pressure or high temperatures) to wash them off. Then allow the carpeted mats to dry before bringing them back inside. Carpet mats can be maintained the same way you maintain your carpeting. Vacuum them daily, and extract or shampoo them when dirt builds up.
