The Unique Benefits Of Automotive Seat Covers

By Carey J. Underwood

One of the great on-the-road ironies is that while you are sitting nicely in your car seat, the seat itself is having to stand up to an incredible tremendous amount of abuse. Dirty garments, wet swimsuits, spilt drinks, children snacking in the backseat, slobbering pets, seat friction and harsh daylight all have the potentiality to ruin and wear out your great looking seats. And if something terrible has befallen your interior, a complete reupholster will cost dearly. This is where automotive seat covers come in.

Moisture is especially cryptic for residents of the drizzly Pacific Northwest and other wet areas. Leather's worst enemy is water. Fabric seating is also susceptible to damage from moisture.

No one plans on fumbling a 40 ounce drink right into their lap while barreling down the freeway, but it occurs. As drinks keep getting bigger and bigger, the potential damage keeps growing and growing. Besides sticky sodas and scalding coffees, on-the-go meals are an auto seat's worst nightmare. Not to mention soiled clothing, tracked-in mud and salty back sweat. While getting out and in of your vehicle could seem like a safe operation, it is, actually, putting a large amount of stress on your seats. Like sandpaper on a jagged block of wood, the feel of your clothing grates against the feel of the upholstery (leather and fabric alike ).

If the interior of your automobile has suffered from some cruel twist of destiny (a leaky pen left lying in the backseat, or a torn seam that is promising to unravel totally), you've got the capability to rejuvenate your vehicles seats without needing to go through the trouble of a complete reupholster job. Instead of calling up your dealer and shelling out an arm and a leg for new seats, you can simply slide a replacement set of automotive seat covers directly over the old ones.

There are 2 different kinds automotive seat covers, a custom fit and universal fit.

Just as an Armani suit is properly measured, cut and stitched to fit the unique shapes and contours of the wearer, so too is a custom fit seat cover scrupulously designed for an actual fit over your seats. Everything is considered, and these made-to-measure seat covers will fit like they were factory-installed. Likewise, custom fit seat covers will not obstruct your seat's side-impact airbags, so you'll be just as secure as before, only with better looking and better protected upholstery.
