Homosassa is a lovely place to live with its close proximity to beaches and warm weather all year round. These wonderful characteristics of the area, though, can also do a lot of damage to your car – especially if you don’t happen to have a garage. To help combat unnecessary wear and tear on your vehicle, make sure you check out these tips for parking your car outdoors in Florida.
Protect your paint job. From the salty air from the ocean to the hot sun and torrential rainfall that occurs on occasion, your vehicle’s exterior can really take a beating in Homosassa. Keep your exterior in tiptop condition by washing it regularly and applying car wax – and a sun protection film – whenever you wash it. You should also consider parking your vehicle under a shady tree to keep it out of direct sunlight.
Consider a sun protector. Whether you have cloth or leather upholstery, the sun can cause it to become damaged over time. Getting a windshield sun protector can reduce the amount of direct sunlight that hits your upholstery – and it will also help reduce your car’s cabin temperature so that your car won’t be too hot every time you try to get into it.
Use a car cover. If you don’t have access to a garage, then consider purchasing a good-quality car cover. These covers will help keep your exterior clean and your car’s interior cool, which is the best of both worlds.
