Keep Your Car Parked in the Shade
Ideally, you want to keep your vehicle in a temperature controlled garage to protect it from the elements whenever possible, but we know that not everyone has access to a garage. A carport is the next best thing, followed by a shaded parking spot and a car cover. The idea is to keep your vehicle cool when storing it.
Invest in a Sunshade
Sunshades are an incredibly affordable solution for keeping the interior of your vehicle cool when you have no other option but to park in the sun. These small and convenient portable devices are really easy to place in your windshield when you part to reflect those hot rays away from the dark interior of your vehicle.
Don’t Go for Long Drives on Hot Days
If you can at all help it, avoid taking long drives on the hottest days or driving at all during the hottest part of the day (usually around 1 or 2pm). The hot asphalt combined with the hot temperature is just asking for trouble if you throw your hot engine into the mix. Long drives in the heat can cause unnecessary wear on your car and increases the risk of your engine overheating.
Avoid Washing Your Vehicle on Hot Days
One of the dangers in washing your car in the heat is having the soap bake on or the water drying before you’re ready, creating streaks. The hot sun can cause the liquids to dry too soon which ruins all the hard work you’ve put in.
Keep Your Car Detailed
The hot sun can really bake on the debris, dirt, and bugs that can collect over time, making them all the more difficult to remove. If you make sure to detail your vehicle regularly, you won’t have to worry about this problem. Mobile Detailing Detailing Pros San Antonio can help.
