Roll up matting loosely with the grooves facing inward.
Store up high where mice can't find it.
That's it.
It's designed to take 20 years of direct weather exposure so you really can't hurt it.

I'll attest to keeping them away from mice. :roll:

Check out an old post of mine.

Rayzor... don't blame the dog. He's doing what he does best... chewing.
Put moth balls on or around your matting. That will keep mice away-fabric softener also works.
Put on high shelf-keep the dog away. Cats-well, I hope they don't like it at all, but they might
want to run their nails through it. I keep my mat in my sluice on a high self with fabric softener.
Check on it every week to be sure.
PS. I love my golden retriever. He's such a mush and very expensive. 1800 for this pure breed. It'll probably be my last one. I've had 4 of them and loved each one more and more.

Simple answer, just move somewhere and prospect "year round". No storage, no mice, no doggies :)
