Hello fellow mother truckers, I was just curious what you guys use to keep the floor clean in your rigs I have a 2016 freightliner cascadia. Thanks

First we take our shoes off at the door. Second, we have cheap Walmart throw rugs throughout. Every few days we shake them out, and throw them in the wash once in awhile.

It's easier for me, my wife takes care of cleaning the truck. It's always nice and spiffy.

I got a pair of weather tech mats as a gift, and man they are nice. But that's the only reason why I have them because I would never spend the 50 some dollars on them that I believe that cost. I agree with turtle go to Walmart. I've even seen some mom and pop truck stops selling mats for 5 dollars.

Two Aldi throw rugs. One large for in front of my bunk, smaller one between the seats. Outside shoes stay in the floor well, stocking feet or bare feet only inside in the "living room". I don't cover the passenger floor, as I don't team and never use that side. They get washed about monthly, more frequently if I spill... embarrassed.gif

Floor mats get a periodic scrubbing with LA's Totally Awesome degreaser (simple green works too) and a pressure wash rinse. I keep a HomeDepot bucket top vacuum and a Homer bucket in my underbunk storage for vacuuming. My drive is a 2017 Cascadia with Park Smart, the vac fits fine in the middle section of the underbunk.

Brian, do they make truck specific mats now? I checked with them when I get into the OTR from a daycab, and they were no joy on Cascadia mats. I would spend the $ if they made them - have them in all of my personal rides and they are sweet... but - yes - quite spendy...

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

To be honest these were for me ole dog pick up truck, but I decided to put them into the peterbilt be instead since I'm in there more anyways. Not a perfect fit or anything like that but I enjoy them. Very durable. The headquarters is actually in Bolingbrook illinois not far from where I live and I believe they have a showroom open to the public may check it out one day.

Iowa 80 & it’s counterpart on I-95 (Petro @ Kenly, NC on I-95) has Cascadia specific mats. If I remember correctly, they were $58.

They also have the condo set which Includes the ones in the pic plus a bigger one for the midsection. That one is approx. $250.

Again, I’ve only seen them at Iowa 80.

I have washable throw rugs, use Swiffer wet pads for quick wipes of the floor, and a mop bucket, Mr clean with febreeze, cleaning rags and a scrub brush for more thorough cleaning and getting in crevices around the seats and door frames. I hate dirty floors because I like kicking my shoes off and despise getting bottoms of socks dirty. I clean my floor every other day or so with the Swiffer, and then scrub the floors every week or so.

Raineys truck parts. They have the weathertech mates for a cascadia. They are also very proud of them.

I know the form fitted ones for my pickup are $127 just for the front two. Yes, they are proud of them
