Car owners spend a lot of money to upgrade their seats to leather. Whether it is for comfort, the smell, or the look; leather is sometimes just worth forking over the extra cash. Many of those same car owners look to seat covers to protect their leather seats. However, seat covers don’t just protect leather. Just because you opted for the standard trim level seats made of some type of fabric, doesn’t mean a seat cover isn’t necessary.
The purpose of a seat cover is to protect what is under it. Different fabrics are just as susceptible to damage as leather is. For example, many people use a seat cover to protect their leather seats from the sun’s UV rays. These harmful rays can dry out leather, causing cracks in the material as well as fade the color of it. If you have a fabric seat, similar problems can occur with prolonged sun exposure. The color can fade from the UV rays, leaving your seats look old and worn down. In addition the sun can create micro tears, leaving your fabric weaker and more prone to tearing on a visible level.
Spilling on leather seats is an absolute atrocity. While wiping up a quick water spill is relatively easy, the key factor is quickness. Fortunately leather doesn’t absorb liquids too fast. So if you have clean up material on hand, you can prevent any damage. However, most leather car seat owners would rather prevent that situation from occurring at all. Therefore, seat covers are a great option for protection against spills. With fabric seats, spills begin to absorb almost instantaneously. This makes car seat covers extremely valuable for these types of seats. A car seat cover will help prevent a permanent stain if someone decides to spill juice in the back seat.
Leather car seat owners also understand the importance of preventing rips from sharp objects. An errant key or jewelry can easily cause irreversible damage to a leather seat. Again, this is why car seat covers are so useful for leather seats. They add an additional layer of thick, quality protection from sharp objects. The same holds true for cloth and fabric car seats. A key or other object can easily pierce the material on your car’s seats, leaving your car with an unsightly gash. Protecting cloth and fabric seats with a car seat cover can help prevent that situation from happening.
