When looking how to maintain a healthy, good looking car, the answer can only be a car cover. A car cover is the surest way of making sure that no harm befalls the car. How can this be? An all weather car cover will be able to shield and protect the car form any sort of weather condition, and the detriment they bring. Nature can be rather vicious when it comes to its treatment to cars. No car is safe in any sort of weather condition, unless it is protected by a cover. Take the sunshine for example. Seemingly harmless, but a total terror. When a car is left standing in the sun, the interior overheats and the internal workings get ruined. The car also becomes very hot and stuffy, making it most unbearable to drive in. Drivers are even at risk of burning their hands on the steering wheel. The exterior of the car also get wrecked from the sun. Ultra violet rays from the sun will cause the finish to melt, and bleach the paintwork. The car ends up losing all former shine and lustre, and will look drab and completely colourless. Rain is terrible for cars. The rain water leaves all sorts of ugly watermarks over the exterior of the car. Acid levels in the rain cause the paintwork to disintegrate too, so the car is left with a horrible stained, patchy, peeling paint look. Aside from this, over time, the framework of the car begins to rust, from all the cold and wet of the rain.
Snow is even worse than rain. All the damage caused by rain, is caused by the snow too. To add more salt to the wound, snow also freezes over the whole car and all its parts. This includes the brakes, which proves to be exceedingly dangerous. Frozen brakes do not work properly, and the results could, G-d forbid, be fatal. Even the wind is not safe for cars. When the wind blows, it tend to sweep the streets and blow anything that has been left out. Bits of rubbish and rubble are therefore suddenly flying through the air, and inevitable end up scratching and denting cars. All weather limousine outdoor covers are fully waterproof and therefore the rain, sleet and snow are of no problem if the car is covered. The material of the cover is breathable, meaning that air and moisture are able to pass out through the fabric. This gives the car a chance to breathe and sweat whilst covered without the worry of the car getting ruined underneath. Being as the cover is protective in all weather conditions, it is also ultra violet resistant. It will not allow the sun’s harmful rays to filter through the cover and wreck the car. The cover will also be able to cushion the car from any nicks and dings. The impact will be absorbed by the cover, and the car will be left without a mark. So in reality, for anyone who cares about their car, a car cover is the only way about it. It is the only thing that will be able to guarantee full protection anywhere. When the cover is not in use, it folds up compactly so that it can be taken on any travels and protect the car wherever it is. It is a cheap, portable garage!
Winter Precautions With Car Covers
Car covers are an essential winter item. Before we go out and brave the storms raging outside, we make sure that we are wrapped up nice and warm. Out come the gloves, scarves, woolly hats, coats and boots. We do not leave a single thing out lest we catch even a runny nose in this weather. But what about our cars? They are left bare, unsheltered, out in the cold, to face the battle alone. No wonder they get ruined and don’t work properly – they’re ill! Be wise, and take the preventative car medicine this winter; get a car cover. You will probably find that a waterproof car cover is your best bet. They will fully equip you and your car to face winter at its best (or worse!). A waterproof car cover will ensure that no rain, sleet or snow will be able to find their way onto your car. This is vital. The rain leaves awful water-marks all over the exterior of the car, so that it looks a frightful mess. Aside from this, the levels of acid in the rain today make the paint-work disintegrate and peel away. Again, this totally ruins the look of the car.
Snow has the same effect on cars as rain, only even worse. It also leaves watermarks, makes the paint crack etc. What’s more is that the snow causes the car to freeze over. When this happens, the brakes freeze too, and this could work out to be extremely hazardous. Frozen brakes do not work effectively enough and could, G-d forbid, cause fatalities. Most waterproof car covers today are made from material that is breathable. This means that air and moisture that are trapped beneath the cover can escape through the material away from the car. This allows the car to sweat and breathe whilst covered, and you do not have worry about it getting steamed up and, or rotten. Do not worry; this does not take away from the resistance of water from entering on to the car. Windy weather is another winter factor that damages a car. As the wind kicks up a storm, anything that has been left lying in the street is unfortunate enough to be dragged along. Bits of rubbish and rubble are suddenly made to fly through the air, and whilst doing so, often end up scratching and denting cars.
This does not usually present itself as a problem when the car is covered with a cover. The cover is able to absorb the shock of the impact from most things, without an impression being left on the car. The cover acts as a cushioning shield for the car. Aside from all of this, just having a car cover will ensure that your car is safer. Sneaking individuals are more likely to abandon your car as a likely target if it is covered, as they cannot see if it is worth the risk. So you only stand to gain from having a car cover! Sunbrella car cover is the ideal preventative ‘medicine’ for a car in hot, sunny climates. Whilst we humans may totally love the sun, and could spend hours upon end just lying in it, it is not good for our cars. Just as we need to put on sun cream to ensure we do not get burnt and skin cancer, our cars need covers so that they do not get ruined.
What effect does the sun have on cars?
There are many different ways that the sun can end up harming cars. To begin with, the internal workings of the car get ruined when the car overheats. Naturally, you do not want this to happen. You want to be sure that your car will run as smoothly as possible. It can also get unbearably hot and stuffy in the car. It is impossible to drive under such conditions, as it is very claustrophobic. The driver is also at risk of burning his hands on the steering wheel, which becomes burning hot from the sun. The exterior of the car can also get ruined from the sun. The sun has extremely powerful ultra violet rays. In recent years, this has gotten worse due to global warming, and the ozone layer thinning. Ultra violet rays are therefore not filtered when entering earth, and come in full force. The ultra violet rays melt the car’s finish, making it loose all it’s shine and lustre. The car is left with a very dull, drab coat of paint. However, even the paint itself get ruined in the sun. The sun bleaches the car’s paintwork, and drains it of all it’s colour. Instead of a beautiful, vibrant coat of paint, the car is colourless, and shabby looking. All together, the car gives a very washed out, old, and weather beaten impression, sooner than it has to.
How can Sunbrella car cover help?
The Sunbrella car cover is made up of acrylic fibres that are themselves naturally resistant to ultra violet rays. It is also woven in a way that makes the resistance even stronger. As this resistance is natural, it will not fade with time, and use. This makes the car cover able to last a lifetime, at least. Even in sunny climates, there is the occasional, odd shower of rain, here and there. Therefore, the Sunbrella cover is also water resistant, but at a much lower degree than its resistance to sun. This is just to make sure that no one gets caught out, and the car left with no protection. Having a Sunbrella cover, will also prevent dust, birds droppings and tree sap from settling on the car and dirtying, and staining it. As a result, the car remains clean and shining, and always looks presentable. Sunbrella car covers resist the growth of rot and mildew in most environments, so there is no need to worry about how the car is faring under the cover. Sunbrella covers will stay vibrant in colour themselves, as the fabric of the cover is dyed before the fibres are woven. This means that the colour is embedded within the material, and not just on the surface. Car owners have the choice of five colours for the Sunbrella cover, all of which make the car look sleek and handsome even whilst covered; Pacific Blue, Sky Blue, Cadet Grey, Jet Black or Toast. There are many different car covers, on the market. Which car cover suits you and your car best will largely depend on where you keep your car and where you live. Even if your car is kept indoors, you will want to cover your car to prevent it from getting overly dusty, and knocked about. For those who keep their car outdoors, there is a large range, depending on the climate and weather conditions.
Technalon is a car cover that is naturally waterproof. It’s manufacturing company, Covercraft, have developed their own fabric called Evolution4, which is woven in a way that makes it naturally waterproof. Since the resistance is natural, it is more durable, as the resistance will not wear thin with time and use. Technalon is UV resistant too, making it suitable for all weather conditions. Sunbrella car covers are designed specifically for those in hot climates. The Sunbrella cover is naturally resistant to ultra-violet rays. It is also dust and dirt resistant so that the dirt so often found in hot climates cannot filter through to the car. At a lower level, Sunbrella is also water resistant, so that the car is somewhat protected from the occasional shower of rain. Noah covers put an emphasis on being waterproof. Just as Noah saved all the animal from the raging storm, so does the Noah car cover shield the car. The Noah cover is made from three layers, each giving an added dimension of protection against not just rain, but all weather conditions. The cover is also sturdy enough to absorb the impact of knocks and bangs so that no impression is left on the car. Multiband is for those who keep their cars indoors in garages. The Multibond cover is a glorified, well-fitted dust sheet for the car, so that even whilst kept indoors, the car remains pristine clean. It also resists the growth of mildew and rot, so that the car and its cover do not get moldy whilst it is covered. All of these covers come in three sizes; universal, semi-custom and custom. The universal cover will fit any car no matter how big or small it is. Semi-custom covers are made to fit a group of cars that are of similar shape and size. The custom cover is made uniquely for each car so that it fits it exactly. The better the fit, the better the protection as there is less chance of the unwanted creeping in unnoticed. As with everything, each and every car cover has its own advantages and disadvantages. There are many factors to consider when buying a car cover, but they are more personal choices and are up to the individual customer.
