Current Economy and Car Covers

Car covers are a smart purchase in this struggling economy. Saving money is on everyone’s mind. Not only are you protecting your investment from dings, scratches and environmental damage but you are keeping it clean which means fewer trips to the car wash or detail shop. Cars are expensive these days. I am told there was a time where you could leave the showroom floor with a new Camaro for under $4, 000. A friend of mine just purchased one in October it was $40,000, the boy has times changed. If the cost of a new car isn’t bad enough, repairs are costly too and most insurance deductibles are $500. Who can afford that? With a good car cover, you can avoid finish damage by harmful fading from the sun. You can also avoid potential dings and scratches that can occur in the garage, on the street, or in a parking lot. Your interior can also suffer without a cover, the sun can fade the seats and crack the dashboard over time. Most folks think they don’t need to cover their car if it is in a garage but consider how tight it usually is in there and how many items around that can scratch or ding the surface such as tools, bicycles, garbage cans etc. I recommend covering your vehicle regardless of where it is parked.

If you like the idea but want an even easier way, they now have a top cover that covers the top half of the vehicle only. This cover is great for snow removal, ice builds up and interior heat reduction. It can also be used for hiding any valuables when parking for any period of time. For instance when you are at the mall or airport parking. If they can’t see it, they won’t want to steal it. This cover is becoming very popular. It is also a more economical choice than a full sized cover. If you are wondering which cover is right for your vehicle, here is what I would recommend. For indoor storage or a mild environment, I would recommend a two-layer cover. For outdoor storage in a moderate to severe climate, a heavier duty three to four layer cover. Be sure they are UV treated to ensure the best protection. Covers can be found on the Internet or in retail automotive supply stores. You will have a better selection online. If you do decide to purchase online, please be sure to shop around for the best price. There are typically some good sales during the Holiday season. You may also want to check their return policies and warranty information.

Washing Car Covers

Car covers are protective fabrics that are used to protect the external and sometimes the internal part of a car from getting damaged by the element of weather.  Their importance is to give a longer life to the decoration of the car and keep dirt off.  Washing these covers is normally a force to reckon with depending on the material, size and the kind of dirt held. Here are some basics of cleaning car protection covers. Take some clean water and add soap to it. Take a clean cloth and dip it in water. Look for the specific places that are stained and clean them using the wet clothing. Remove all the spots before you dip it in water. If you take the whole cover and dip it in water, you may not be capable of removing all stains from these covers. For all the stains that are on the cover, rub them consistently using the wet cloth until they come out. In case the stain is too stubborn, you can look for some bleach.

Some materials are not supposed to be bleached. Bleaching spoils their appearance and is hence worth if they are not bleached. For thin and flimsy covers, consider using the gentle wash. For heavy duty covers, normal washing is recommendable. Once the cover is thoroughly clean, hang it on a strong line to dry. It is important to avoid drying car covers in a dryer as this has the ability to destroy them.  The car cover is supposed to be allowed adequate time to ensure that it dries properly. If possible, allow it to dry in the direct sunshine. Storing covers that are not well dried enhances the development of fungal and mold materials that shorten the lifespan of the covers.

There are several problems associated with ignoring the instructions of the manufacturer. Some of them include an extension of the covers and fading among others. All these washing defaults make the carpet appear to be in bad condition.
