An ATV cover keeps your quad clean and dry during storage and trailering. To make your ATV cover last as long as possible and provide the best protection, you need to keep your cover clean and free of debris or snow buildup.
Washing Your ATV Cover
The easiest way to clean an ATV cover is to wash it while it’s on your ATV. Use a soft brush to remove debris and hose the cover down with a low-pressure garden hose. Do not throw your ATV cover in the washing machine, and avoid the use of harsh chemicals. Your ATV cover is designed with special coatings that can be compromised by harsh soaps, chemicals, or bleach.
Do not place a tarp on top of your ATV cover. A tarp will trap moisture underneath the cover and keep the fabric from breathing.
Storing Your ATV Cover
Make sure your ATV cover is clean and completely dry before storage. A wet, dirty ATV cover encourages the growth of mold and mildew. Store the cover in a dry storage area, preferably in a temperature-controlled climate.
Replacing Your ATV Cover
For the best protection, your ATV cover should be free of rips and tears. If the fabric wears through or you get a hole in the cover, it’s time to replace it or take it to an upholstery shop for professional repair.
