Protect Your Vehicle From the Sun | Jacksonville, FL Collision Center

How to Protect Your Car from the Florida Sun

At Fields Collision Center Jacksonville, we love all the sunny days and natural beauty we get to enjoy near the Florida coast. Unfortunately, the sun is also capable of doing a lot of damage to your car, so it’s important to find Florida collision centers you can trust to remedy sun damage as well as take care of other auto body repairs. It’s better to take a preventative approach to sun damage, and we’d love to give you some tips to keep your car looking like new.

Protecting the Interior of Your Car

One of the most obvious ways to protect your car is to keep it out of the sun altogether, but you might not always have the opportunity to do that. When the sun is beating down on your interior, it causes it to fade and dull. You can use a sunshade to protect your car when it’s parked, or for an even simpler solution, you can apply UV-blocking window film, which allows sunshine into your car while also blocking harmful rays. You should also moisturize the interior of your car by applying a conditioner to your seats and dashboard in order to prevent them from becoming cracked and brittle from the sun.

Protecting the Exterior of Your Car

The exterior of your car also absorbs a lot of damage from the sun, but there are steps you can take to prevent it and keep your paint pristine. Washing and waxing your car can be easily performed at home and will add extra protection to your car by removing dirt and retaining your paint’s oils, but you’ll need to go farther if you want long-lasting protection. There are more heavy duty sealants available to protect your paint and even protective films that can keep all the elements out. If you want to know more, contact our Florida collision center and we’d be happy to answer your car protection questions.
