Regular cleaning can be accomplished by simply washing the mats with mild soap and water and a medium to stiff bristled brush. Boat washing soap or other mild detergent, water and a hose works well. Although Marine Mat is stain resistant, certain things, such as food, wine, fish blood or grease may stain the mats if they are left in contact for an extended period of time. It is always best to clean or rinse away any spills as soon as possible. Work the cleaner into the stain with a stiff bristle brush, brushing with the grain texture, and rinse with a hose to finish.

Remove Snap-It Mats periodically to clean the underside of the mats and the deck below the mats. Water and debris may get trapped underneath and damage your deck. Simply remove the mats and set them on a driveway, dock or deck and use the same method as in the boat. Let the mats air dry by laying them flat or hanging them up. Once dry, reinstall the mats or roll them up for storage in a compartment or cabin of the boat. MarineMat is very resistant to most weather conditions and is designed to be in the elements while being used. It is however best to keep your boat, kayak or other vehicle covered or stored indoors while not being used to extend the life of your mats. MarineMat should be treated and cared for the same way you care for vinyl marine seats, carpet or other floor coverings. Excessive continuous exposure to sunlight and water will decrease the life of your mats.
Snap-It Series Mats should be treated like snap-in carpet. The mats are designed to be wet while in use or for cleaning, but not stored in water or on a continuously wet deck. The mats will perform best if stored snapped in place over a dry clean deck and under cover when not in use. If the boat will be stored uncovered and in the elements, remove the mats and store in a head compartment or other storage area of the boat.
MarineMat foam has a memory. If you notice an indent in the mats when you remove your cover from the support pole or any other area where something with some weight has been sitting for an extended period, that mat will rebound over a short period of time back to its original shape.
Much like a magnifying glass certain things on a boat can cause focused light which can cause blushing or burning of the surface on your MarineMat. This is a very rare occurrence while actually using the boat, but if you leave your boat on a dock, lift or trailer and the sun is at the correct angle this can occur. The best way to avoid this is to cover the boat when you are not using it or in the case of the Snap-it Series Mats, remove them. If this happens to your mats they are not ruined. The damage usually looks like a wet spot (a little darker) and over time this will blend or weather back into the rest of the mat area and become less noticeable.
Things to Avoid
- Sharp Objects like knives or tools dragging across the surface.
- Pressure washing due to the risk of shredding or cutting the mats.
- Extended contact with petroleum based products. This can cause staining that may not be able to be removed.
