If you have a garage or other storage building for your valuable vehicle, you probably think you’re home free. Why would you ever need a car cover if your car is stored inside? Here are four things to consider:
- During the spring and autumn to protect the car from pollen
Pollen and dust are detrimental to your car. If you could seal the garage, you might be able to keep pollen off your car. During the spring and fall, when you and your neighbors are doing yardwork, you probably keep your garage open. Having an indoor car cover will prevent pollen and dust from settling on your car.
- During seasons where moisture collects at night
Dew can sit on your car and cause corrosion. Using a material that traps moisture can be just as damaging. Keep water and moisture off your vehicle with a breathable material that doesn’t trap water between the cover and your car.
- If you have pets or fear small animals getting trapped in your garage
Raccoons, squirrels and cats are hard to corral and keep off your vehicle. The nails on their paws might be small but given time will cause damage to your paint job.
- If you work in your garage
If you’re like most people, your garage isn’t just for storage. You might work on your car in the garage or do other household projects. It’s just a logical space to use. If you slip up, maybe drop a hammer or spill chemicals, you could mess up the exterior of your car. Covering your car with an outdoor car cover gives you more protection.
