Find out how to properly disinfect your car during the Coronavirus outbreak through expert advice, recommended methods and the right equipment.
May 13, 2020
With the public preparing to go back to work this week, we thought we'd put together a detailed guide on how you can make sure your car is properly disinfected for your return to work. As one of the safest forms of transport against the risk of catching Coronavirus, we urge you to keep your private safe haven as clean as possible during the global pandemic.
As much as we do our best to socially distance and avoid direct contact with people, it's important not to let the virus find other ways of getting to you e.g through contact with surfaces.
Our cars are small enclosed spaces where the risk of contracting the virus can multiply rapidly. Just think about the number of times you make contact with various parts of your interior, or worse, somebody else does... To ensure a deep and proper clean, you should disinfect the following parts thoroughly:
Side note: any belongings you may have stored inside your car should also be disinfected - it's time to finally get to the bottom of your coin compartment.
And now you're wondering what to use to disinfect all of these parts, right? Whilst we may be tempted to give a quick wipe over with a simple cloth from under cupboard underneath the sink, as mentioned earlier, this guide is for a deeper clean and the recommended products for such a cleanse may contain stronger elements so it's important to dress for the occasion and slip into the shoes of a professional Car Detailer - here's how:
Protect your hands from chemical as well as reducing the spread of Coronavirus - we recommend latex, nitrile or vinyl gloves rather than polyethylene (which are normally found at the petrol station).
Wearing the right type of mask will protect you from contracting the virus through direct inhalation as well as protect you from any harmful chemicals from the cleaning products. To ensure you are best protected from inhaling contaminated droplet or aerosols, we suggest investing in high protection mask which are divided into three levels of FFP.
Rather than reach for a sheet of kitchen towel paper, you'll want to use a microfibre cloth which will provide a great finish to your car as well as maximise dust trapping. You may even want to invest in specific vehicle interior wipes with antibacterial treatments.
You'll want to use the correct products for a deep antibacterial clean. Below we have listed the things you'll want to consider when shopping for your products to ensure you are buying equipment that allows you to perform thorough disinfection without causing any damage to the materials inside your vehicle.
For any parts of your car that are made from plastic or metal, the most recommended products have at least 70% alcohol (preferably isopropyl). This is the type of cleaner used commonly in dealerships and workshops.
For seats and interior upholstery, you'll want to use a cleaning foam designed to remove stains and marks. Remember to use this on your carpets and doors too if applicable.
For leather upholstery, be sure to invest in a product that contains natural soaps for gentle yet effective cleaning. The last thing you want is dryness and cracking - products that contain lanolin are great for leather cleaning and hydration preservation.
A great spot for the virus to hide and be pushed into the air. Now imagine cleaning the entirety of your car and forgetting to disinfect your ventilators and air vents - one push of a button and all your hard work is void. Use a manufacturer advised air vents cleaning spray.
1. Approach this task methodically so you don't cancel out any of your hard work. For example, work left to right or front to back so you're not retracing your steps when cleaning your car.
2. Remove dust before using the cleaning products for a more effective clean.
3. Ensure all surfaces are dry after using your products to avoid any form of humidity. Don't forget, if you have a leather interior, you'll want to use a product that is moisturising to avoid dryness and cracking.
4. Once you have cleaned and sprayed your air vents, you may want to ventilate the entire cabin to get rid of any chemicals or aerosols.
5. Remain alert throughout the process - under no circumstance should you touch your face or make contact with someone else. It is advised to approach this task by yourself for a better guarantee.
6. Don't forget to wash the outside of your car as normal and disinfect your keys.
7. Once done, bin your personal protective equipment and throw your clothes in the washing machine. and thoroughly wash your hands and face with soap.
