Rain and snow contain pollutants that can cause damage to your vehicle. When left out in the rain for long periods of time, your car will become much more prone to rust and corrosion. Heavy snow can also add extreme amounts of pressure to your vehicle's exterior and accelerate the corrosion process.
A waterproof cover will act as an impermeable barrier between external water and your vehicle. When purchasing a waterproof cover look for materials that are water-resistant. Fabrics like Endura Plus™ and polypropylene, or fabrics that have been treated with special waterproof coating, are especially effective at repelling water. These materials are also fully breathable. Unlike a tarp, breathable covers are designed to expel trapped water, preventing the growth of mold.
Vehicles that are left out in hot, dry climates, will suffer from the effects of the sun's harmful rays. High temperatures and UV rays can slowly wear away and dull your paint job. The hot sun will also warp and crack your interior dashboard.
The best solution for hot climates is to protect your car with a cover that is UV-treated. Look for materials like DuPont Tyvek™ or a UV-treated SFS, as these materials are designed specifically to shield against the sun. Sunproof covers should also have reflective properties and should be lighter in color.
When your car, truck, station wagon, van, or SUV sits parked outdoors, there are a number of elements that can scratch, dent, or dull your vehicle's paint and finish. Dust can become abrasive and scratch your vehicle. Bird droppings can stick to your car's paint, making it difficult to remove without damage. Over time, wind, rain and snow can wear away your paint's finish and make it look dull. Trees can drop acorns, sap, and pollen, all which can stain, dent, or scratch your car. With an outdoor car cover, you can protect your vehicle from these and other damaging elements. Outdoor covers should be weather resistant and should feature a multi-layer design to provide total weather protection. Effective outdoor covers are often made from a blend of durable fabrics.
You may think that your vehicle is safe from harm in your garage or storage unit; however your vehicle is just as vulnerable to damage parked indoors as it is parked outdoors. Vehicles stored indoors collect dust and dirt, which can become abrasive to your vehicle's finish, causing tiny scratches. Pets and other animals that may hide out in your garage or storage area may damage your vehicle as well. To provide indoor protection for your car, truck, station wagon, van, or SUV from potential damage indoors, shield it with an indoor car cover. Indoor car covers should pamper your vehicle's paint. Look for covers made from non-abrasive materials, like nylon. As always, indoor covers should also be breathable to prevent mold, mildew and the buildup of condensation.
