As July starts to wrap up, temperatures continue to rise to sweltering highs throughout the week, so it’s crucial to know how to protect your car from being damaged from the heat.
In this blog, we’ll give you a few tips for protecting the interior of your car specifically. Keep in mind that following these guidelines can help maintain the value of your car and save you money in the long run.
1. Cover surfaces
Simply adding floor mats and seat covers can prevent some heat damage as well as help avoid other things from wearing down your car’s interior like embedded dirt.
2. Wipe your dashboard
Cleaning your dashboard helps fight the risk of dust building up and causing scratches. We recommend using a microfiber cloth to wipe it down.
3. Crack the windows
If possible, crack your windows slightly when you leave it parked in one spot for a while. It helps level out air pressure and lower heat building up inside.
4. Park in the shade or buy a sunshade
Making sure your vehicle is parked in the shade is a simple way to help prevent your dashboard from being damaged from too much sunlight. Some people choose to go ahead and buy a sunshade to block the sunlight coming in through the windshield.
5. Use conditioner on the seats
Applying a conditioner to your car’s seats can not only keep them cleaner, it can also limit the amount of tears or worn spots in the material.
