Covering your car effectively

Whether you store your vehicle outdoors or inside, you can give it some extra protection by using car covers. The materials will provide an additional barrier against moisture, dust and dirt. This will help to reduce the potential of corrosion developing and protects the paintwork from scratches and scrapes. You can cover a car easily after each use or leave it covered for a long period of time if you won’t be driving it in the short term.

If you do use car covers, there is one very important thing to remember; you should never cover a car when it is wet. This will lock the moisture in and cause the corrosion and damage you are looking to avoid. The material will have a waterproof outer layer to protect the vehicle but it will likely have a softer inner lining to avoid damaging the paintwork. The water will be absorbed into this when you cover a wet vehicle and will take a long time to dry, potentially resulting in damp and mould.

Before you cover a car you should wash and dry it carefully. Washing will ensure that all dirt is removed and won’t scratch the paint when you put the cover on or remove it. It will also get rid of contaminants you don’t want to leave on the vehicle for a long period of time. You may even want to consider waxing the paintwork to give it some extra protection.
