How to Maintain Your Car and Protect It from UV Rays

Getting your first Tesla is an incredible experience. No internal combustion engine means a quiet ride and smoother acceleration as you press the throttle. The scent of a brand new electric car is superior to that of a new ICE vehicle for us EV lovers. When you first put yourself in the seat of a Tesla, it changes your entire conception of a car. Gone are the complicated instrument clusters and engine noise, and the smell of gasoline. Once you ride in a Tesla, you start to understand why the company took the automobile industry by storm and single-handedly propelled the EV industry to new heights.

On the other hand, looking at your brand-new vehicle can make you a bit anxious. Why? Because despite your cautious driving, it’s only a matter of time before your new Tesla begins to show evidence of contact with mother nature. So today, we’re going to discuss the steps you can take to preserve the showroom look of your Tesla.

The factory floor mats that come standard on all Tesla models can collect dirt, sand, snow, and other debris, so it’s essential to maintain them clean to increase the resale value of your vehicle. The All-Weather Floor Mats are a popular choice for Tesla owners who frequently go camping and engage in other activities that might leave a mess on the floor.

Dog Mode and other pet-friendly features make Teslas ideal vehicles for pet owners. For example, if your dog gets thrilled about riding in your Tesla, keeping the car clean may not be top of mind. With a Pet Cargo Cover, you won’t have to worry about your trunk cargo becoming scratched or stained. It’s quick and easy to install and remove, and it even folds up when not in use.

 

Ways To Protect A Tesla

Having a car for an extended period may cause damage such as dents, scratches, and interior fading.

You may think, how can the Tesla paint be safeguarded? And what are the best practices for maintaining a spotless interior?

 There are three essential things to ensure your Tesla lasts a long time.

With the help of quality window film, ceramic coating, and paint protection film (PPF), you can keep your car’s paint job looking fresh and shiny for a long time.

You have a vision of the electrical future, and that’s one of the reasons you purchased a Tesla. Your research told you that the cost of gas and maintenance makes owning an ICE car far more expensive in the long run. Therefore, you want to make sure the car preserves its beauty for the long haul.

 There are several advantages to window tinting, ceramic coating, and paint protection film. Of course, each of these procedures comes at a cost, but they greatly increase the future value of your Tesla. Protecting your Tesla is, therefore, absolutely worth the money.

Protect Your Tesla's Interior with Window Tinting

Isn’t it odd that nearly every automobile advertisement has a vehicle with darkened windows? That is because tinted windows give any car a sportier look.

 Tinting your Model 3 Tesla’s windows are more than just a fashion statement. Here are a few extra advantages of window tinting.

Increased Privacy with Tinted Windows

Our automobiles serve as an extension of our living spaces to some extent. We spend a lot of time in our cars, so you must feel comfortable when you’re driving.

The primary distinction is the lack of privacy provided by vehicles instead of living rooms. In contrast, we believe that you should be able to unwind in your automobile just as you would in your home. Thanks to the window tint, you’ll be able to!

VLT (visible light transmission) is a metric used to gauge how much light may flow through a window tinting cover. As a result, the smaller the proportion, the greater the degree of privacy you have.

 A window tint with a 5 percent VLT enables just 5 percent of the vehicle’s interior light to enter, giving you an entirely different driving experience.

Remember that several provinces limit the amount of darkness that may be applied to your windows. You may be stopped if you don’t follow your province’s tinting regulations.

 

Prevent Interior Sun Damage

Your Tesla, like any other car, is going to take a hammering. It’s inevitable.

Car upkeep, parking it in the garage, and good driving style make a big difference. But what if you have to leave your car parked outside in the sun while you go grocery shopping or attend an event?

Any daily driver will have to withstand the beating sun. However, with a high-quality window tint, you can protect the inside surfaces of your vehicle. Window tint prevents 98% of the sun’s heat from entering your Tesla’s cabin, ensuring that your car’s interior stays relaxed and comfortable.

Increase Tesla Miles Per Charge

As a Tesla owner, you care a lot about driving a safe vehicle and reducing the cost of owning your vehicle.

Did you know that Tesla cars include a Cabin Overheat Protection technology that automatically activates the A/C when the inside temperature reaches more than 110 degrees? Because of this, your miles per charge will drop, and you’re not going to be as efficient as you had previously assumed. Here, window film comes to the rescue!

To prevent your Tesla’s cabin from overheating, you need to install window tints. Your Tesla’s range is increased as a consequence!

Protect Your Skin and Eyes

Sunlight provides us with much needed vitamin D. However, as many people have learned the hard way, even light sunburn may turn lethal when exposed to excessive amounts of sunshine.

Prolonged unprotected exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes many cases of skin cancer in Canada each year. It can also damage our eyes by exposing them to damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation. As you know, driving in the sun for lengthy periods exposes your skin and eyes to the rays.

Reduces Sun Glare for Safer Driving

Studies reveal that when it’s bright and hazy, the risk of a major traffic accident rises by 16%. According to another research, there are up to 9000 sun glare-related accidents per year. That’s more than the snowy roads are responsible for.

Light sensitivity has also been linked to migraines, dry eyes, and swelling of the eyes. A dark window tint, often an illegal one, or one that was so opaque that it was impossible to see through, was required in the past to reduce glare from the sun.

 We’ve used ceramic technology in the window tint to compensate for this loss of clarity and colour saturation.

How Ceramic Coating Protects Tesla Paint

It is a ceramic coating that keeps the outside of a Tesla looking like new. Tint concentrates on interior protection.

Make Cleaning Your Tesla Easy

Dirty sports cars attract attention for the wrong reason. If you want to impress others and pique their interest in your vehicle, you must keep it immaculate. So it’s a good idea to wash and wax your Tesla regularly.

 However, you’re probably aware of how time- and energy-intensive it may be.

Was that the case? Wouldn’t waxing your automobile be a waste of time? (Please wait until you’ve finished reading this article before you begin your joyful dance.) You no longer have to worry about waxing your Tesla with a ceramic coating.

 The hydrophobic qualities of Ceramic Coating also make it simpler to clean surfaces. If you’re not convinced, see how easily dirt and water slide off this car after applying a ceramic coating!

Enhanced Paint Color

Using a ceramic coating protects the paint of a Tesla against minor blemishes and fading, ensuring that the vehicle’s exterior remains flawless for longer.

On the other hand, Ceramic coating does not require years of patience before seeing results. Applied ceramic coating immediately enhances the appearance of your Tesla. The colour becomes more pronounced, and the new car will glisten!

Take Precautions to Prevent External Damage

Our PPF uses molecular bonding to connect to seal and protect surfaces. Over time, you Tesla will get more than just scratches and stains. Insect acids, damaging UV radiation, and other environmental toxins will also damage a paint job.

With Tesla’s ceramic coating, you’ll be able to drive comfortably knowing that it won’t wash off like a wax or sealer, unlike wax or sealant.

Maintain Perfect Paint With PPF For Your Tesla

It looks like you’ve done an excellent job with the ceramic coating. Now, I’m going to outdo you. Tesla’s exterior protection has been taken to a new level thanks to painting protection film. Applying PPF is, in reality, like arming your Tesla with a thick layer of steel.

Looking at how paint protection film can improve your quality of life is in order.

 

Prevent Exterior Damage

This is the primary function of paint protection film, which is why we put it at the top of the list. The paint on your automobile can be severely damaged by road debris such as stones, sand, asphalt, and more. If acid rain isn’t enough, bugs and bird droppings will finish the job.

 Paint protection film, sometimes known as a clear bra, can prevent all of this. Protect your car’s paint against fading and damage with paint protection film, which is thin, lightweight, and virtually invisible.

 Because it is thick and difficult to penetrate, PPF is the perfect compliment to Ceramic Coating. 

Self-Heal Scratches

When it comes to our PPF, this is where things take off.

 As well as guarding against gravel and bugs, top-of-the-line paint protection films can also self-heal if it is scratched.

 Yes, you may use a wire brush (up to 6 mil) and warm water to remove scratches from paint protective coating.

 

Boost Vehicle Aesthetics

The options for safeguarding a vehicle are virtually limitless. There are several ways to protect your Tesla from animal damage, such as installing a massive steel bumper in front. That repair, on the other hand, would be aesthetically unappealing.

Paint protection film, on the other hand, immediately improves a vehicle’s appearance. Even though the film is invisible to the human eye, you can tell that it makes your car seem brand new!

Paint protection coatings that give your Tesla an appealing finish may also be purchased.

Save Money On Expensive Vehicle Repairs

Is this anything you’ve ever had to deal with? Otherwise, consider yourself quite fortunate. The cost of painting an automobile varies widely, but a high-quality paint job will run you around $5,000. It’s best if you avoid having to paint your automobile at all costs.

There’s a protective barrier that’s destroyed every time your paint is punctured, no matter how little the piece of gravel is. Rust and other damage can begin to form as soon as the barrier is broken.

When it comes to saving money in the long run, investing in paint protection film and automobile armor is essential.

Conclusion

Look for a professional installer of PPF and ceramic coatings if your new Tesla needs long-term protection. Before buying floor liners, be sure the brand you pick has a well-reviewed liner for your exact make and model and consider using a professional installer.
