How are you guys cleaning yours after a muddy weekend of fun? The rubber diamond plate-like texture makes it a pain

That's a good idea, do you cut out holes the D rings or etrack (if you have it)?

I've been "sweeping" the dirt out, but it's not pretty. I'm guessing I can't just use a hose and wash all the mud and dirt out?

I wouldn't want to introduce that much water into the garage.

The carpet idea makes some sense, in the meant time, i'll keep experimenting.

I did a forum search and was surprised that there weren't any posts on this subject considering it's got to be a pretty common problem.

I know this topic came up a few years ago, various different ways of dealing with it. Trying to avoid getting the mud in is the first step. Some laid down tarps, some cleaned up after it turned to dirt, some use the high end blowers. In our Raptor I used the pressure washer to hose it out, then I used our blower to blow as much water out. From there I'd close it up, open the side vent and crank the vent on in the garage. Admittedly where I live it's pretty warm, I'd avoid hosing it out if it's going to sit wet. We had the aluminum diamond plat that came down from the wall, I tried to avoid getting water under that.

I've hosed mine down,then used a wet-vac to suck all the water and muck,up.Works pretty well,but you still have a haze on the floor.I do not get it too wet,who knows how well everything is sealed.

Sweep up worst of it then give it quick once-over with the shop vac. Doesn't get it kitchen-spotless-clean but who cares, it's a garage floor and it's only going to get dirty again next time.

Electric pressure washers are pretty much everywhere now. Low volumes of water and with some Simple Green or something similar, it does a really good job. Just do it on a nice day and leave it open awhile to dry out really well.
