Reasons You Should Get a Car Cover

Protecting your car is an excellent idea, and many people do not realize the importance of a good, quality cover. Without a cover, your car faces many “dangers” every day, so why not ensure that your investment is protected and save yourself some unwanted repairs down the road? Below are four of the most important reasons you need to invest in this essential car accessory.


The sun’s ultraviolet rays can wreak havoc your car’s paint and cause the rubber trim to crack, as well as jeopardize the interior. If sun protection is your concern, we recommend using a UV-resistant material. Also, excessive moisture, such as snow and rain, can also damage the finish of your car. In this case, you can look out for a material that is highly water-repellent, but also breathable so no moisture can get trapped between your car’s exterior and the cover.

Environmental Nuisances

Let’s just name a few: bird droppings on your newly washed car, the sap has covered your vehicle in the parking space, or your sleek, black car is now greenish-yellow from pollen! You can avoid all these hassles with a car cover.


Kids can scratch your car’s body and bumpers with their bikes and scooters. Adults are not perfect either. There is just something about a shiny vehicle that makes people want to touch it. Keep those fingerprints off your precious possession by covering it up. Out of sight, out of mind.

Car Cover


Cats, mice, chipmunks, and squirrels love to hang out on and inside cars. This can result in scratches and cause dirt & hair to accumulate on the car. By putting a cover on your vehicle, you can impede these animals from making themselves at home in your car, and it will protect your paint if they do. We recommend using a cover that has some thickness to it.

If you have bird drops, animals hair, or any other removable dirt that you might want to remove, bring your car to Mike’s Auto Spa. We have the best car washing deals in Westminster. Check our car washing packages here.
