A Guide to Car Interior Waterproofing
If you have just bought a new car or are prone to spilling then interior waterproofing is a great idea for you. Here is a little information to help you decide what types of waterproofing you need in your car.
Waterproof Seat Covers
Seat covers are a great investment for many reasons. Not only can you protect the seat from spills, you can keep mud, animal hair and so many other things off. A car is such a huge investment and whether you have leather or carpet seats, having them cleaned after a water or other kind of spill can be costly. You can find waterproof seat covers at almost any auto shop as well as online and in many general stores.
You will want to focus on the type of seats you have when you are buying them as well as whether or not you want to be able to see the seat through. There are many different materials when it comes to seat covers and waterproof generally allows you to have a cover on and at the same time keep the design of the car in tact without looking tacky. Once you find them online or in a store you can easily put them on. They will either tie on around which usually happens when you buy cloth seat covers or for most waterproof covers you can use the elastic to stretch over and then secure around.
If you are worried about the mirrors of your car or the interior sides of the windows then you can get a film to protect them. You can find them either pre-cut and you will need to know the make and model of the car or the dimensions as many times they are similar to others. Or you can buy sheets of the film cover and cut them on your own. While it can be a few dollars to buy them pre-cut as well as a small hassle to have to measure and look up a model number at the store, it can end up giving you a more secure waterproof protection than if you were to cut them yourself.
Stereo and Speakers
Depending on the model of your car as well as the type of system you have, you can easily find stereo and speaker covers that are waterproof and protect them from spills. You will want to either begin at an auto store and let them know the make and model of your car so they can match you up with the right marine cover. If you installed the system yourself, you can use the make and model number of the actual stereo and speaker system to find a cover that fits over each one of the components. You can find them online too, usually for much cheaper.
The bottom line is that using 1 or all 3 of these waterproofing techniques can help to save your car as well as save you money in the long run.
