How are car covers normally used?

car coversThe standard use for a car cover is when you won’t be using your car for a long time. Alternatively, you should use one when you are planning to park somewhere that exposes the vehicle to the elements. Some people even use them when they leave a vehicle in a communal car park.

One thing you should remember here is that it is unwise to leave a wet cover on the car for a few days. If you cover your car outside to keep it safe from rain, that is ok. However, you should not just leave it in place for a long period of time. This will trap moisture and can cause rust and mildew. Instead you should uncover the vehicle and wipe any wet parts to dry them. Do this once it stops raining


As for what the best cover material for your car is, there are actually multiple options. This includes composite and cotton covers.

Composites can be very good because they filter and drain water that comes into contact with your vehicle. At the same time they can do an excellent job at filtering dust away too.

Cotton covers are appropriate if your primary purpose is to prevent paint scratches. These cost efficient products are gentle to the paintwork and your wallet. If your main concern isn’t keeping the car safe from rain or water, then they will serve you nicely.
