Protecting Your Car During Hot Weather in Brisbane


The Australia sun can be scorching, and humans and cars need to be protected! The sun is responsible for many ailments and illnesses including skin ageing, headaches, heat stroke, and more. Cars also can take a beating during the hot weather with the sun’s UV rays beating down on cars. Damage occurs to different parts of the car without owners realising it is happening. Prestige Car Removal Brisbane offers the following tips to keep your car safe and protected during the hot weather.

  • Wash & Wax

Washing and waxing your car removes the dust, particles, and other elements stuck to the car’s paint. You don’t want these to become baked on during the hot months from the blaring sun. Removing the dust, particles and other elements and then providing your car with a good wax job is like sunblock for humans as it helps to lock in natural oils to help the paint from cracking. Washing and waxing your car regularly will help protect the car.

  • Paint Protection Systems

Paint protection systems include film coatings and sprays. The systems are invisible shields that help to protect your car from minor scratches, sand, substances, and small dents. Be sure that you choose one of good quality.

  • Park in Shaded Areas

When it is hot outside park the car in the garage, under a roof, or in a shaded area.

  • Check Your Tyres

Heat also affects tyres, tending to inflate the tyres. This is quite dangerous as when they come into contact with scorching road surfaces they can blowout. Be sure that your tyres are at the right level of pressure during the hot months.

  • Windshield Shades

When the car is parked outside, use a sun shade to protect the dashboard and steering wheel from the heat.

  • Tint the Windows

Tinting your windows not only provides a comfort to you and your passengers, but it also helps protect your car from UV rays.

  • Regularly Clean the Interiors

The inside of your cars should be regularly cleaned and vacuumed, applying interior protectants and conditioners.

  • Seat Covers

Seat covers may not sound appealing, but they do help protect seats from the hot UV rays of the sun.

It is also important that you protect your car’s engine being sure that the fluids of the car are at the proper levels, coolant, motor oil, transmission, brake fluids, and other fluids. Also be sure to check your battery as it can wear out quicker during the hot weather months. Your air conditioning should also be regularly checked for weak air flow, insufficient temperature, and refrigerate.
