Did you know YOUR car could be filthier than a toilet seat? A recent study by insurer Ageas has revealed the average car is home to more than 3,826 units of bacteria per square inch. Yikes! How freaky is that?
But fear not. Since we are a professional disinfecting service provider, we have ideas on how to ensure your car is a safe environment for you and your family. Here are some tips:
The first step to cleaning and disinfecting your car interior is to choose the cleaning agents and materials you will use. Depending on whether you have leather, cloth, or imitation leather upholstery, steps and cleaning agents will differ.
Isopropyl alcohol is a proven disinfectant, and is also safe to use on most car interior surfaces. DON’T use it on leather.
Isopropyl alcohol will remove many stains, smudges, and residues, as well as kill bacteria and viruses.
Prioritise “high touch” areas of your car when disinfecting. Things like the ventilation grilles and knobs, as well as the rearview mirror are all common touch points in a vehicle.
For leather steering wheels, seating, and trim, a combination of soap and water is a safe and sufficient way to clean them. Do not scrub hard when cleaning your leather interior, and avoid excess suds and water
The best way to ensure that your car is germ and virus-free is to hire a professional disinfecting service in your area. They have the best equipment and disinfecting solutions to combat bacteria in different settings, including your car.
