English term or phrase: Covers use in a one car garage under typical ventilation
Hello, I need an explanation what does "covers use" mean? Is it about some covers (for cars or something) or something else.
Thank you very much

Explanation:
More context is needed. What sort of a document contains these words?
I am thinking of it as maybe a clause in an insurance policy or guarantee, which "covers", i.e. is valid for, use of something (maybe an engine pre-heater?) used in garages, provided the garage is ventilated.
