Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bill Exceeded my expectations.
We wanted a clean and dry garage, but Vermont winters resulted in large amounts of dirty snow, slush and water on the floor. This mat holds keeps the snow and water from seeping out into the rest of the garage. It looks nice too. I am a bit concerned about how to take it apart and storing it in the summer, but I'll deal with that when the time comes.

We found that any water that dripped from garaged vehicle onto this garage mat had to be
swept off; it would not evaporate unless garage door was left open and an outside breeze
was readily available for an extended period of time. As a result of being damp, it easily
collected dirt & sand. In addition, the mat never laid completely flat though all sides and
ends were properly installed and it laid on flat, smooth concrete. After a year of frustration,
I threw it away.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by REM25 This product does exactly what it is intended to do.
I purchased the same garage mat several years ago and it worked great to hold the melting snow and water that dripped from my car. After being without the mat for a few years, I decided to buy another one! If you have an older garage without floor drains, this works great to confine the water in the area under the car.

I bought one of these mats in 2004 for my one car garage and loved it. We had a two garage built in 2008 and decided to buy two more. The original was still in great shape but we wanted two new ones in our new garage. The new ones weren't the same material but I didn't think much of it. We pulled them out of the garage the first summer we had them to hold a garage sale inside the garage and they warped all out of shape in the heat. They have become brittle and cracked and have warped even more out of shape since. I contacted the manufacturer the other day and was told that when oil prices went up a few years ago they changed the formula to keep the price down. The new formula mats are JUNK. The old one I have is still very flexible. Don't waste your money on these unless you plan on buying new ones every couple of years.

Based on the online picture, I thought the CleanPark garage mat was, well, a mat -- namely a pad that is rolled into place on the garage floor. What I found is that it is a piece of heavy-duty vinyl sheeting that is held in its rectangular shape by some framing strip material that snaps into place around the perimeter of the vinyl. So, some assembly is required which takes time. I purchased two of of these CleanPark mats -- the first took me a little under an hour to assemble and once I got the hang of it, I got the next one done in about 25 minutes. The vinyl sheet is a couple of inches longer than the framing so you have to cut off a strip for proper fitting (this is described in the directions).
I thought the directions could have been better -- the manufacturer recommends attaching the framing to the vinyl on the left side first but I recommend starting on the edge that is closest to the garage door and then doing the sides next, followed by the farthest edge last.
We have been parking our cars on the mats for a couple of weeks and they seem to be holding up OK. I actually thought about returning these after I realized that assembly was required but I didn't see anything better that didn't cost a lot more so I decided to keep them and give them a chance. I'm only giving it a 3-star for now because I don't know how well the mats will hold up over time. That said, I will recommend this item if you are looking for a (relatively) inexpensive system for protecting your garage floor, and don't mind doing the assembly,
