As we slowly emerge from the pandemic, the ways we think about cleanliness have been forever changed. Hygiene and sanitation are now top-of-mind, especially as we get into our vehicles and drive each day. Below are three important steps you can take now to ensure you keep you and your loved ones contaminant-free while traveling.
Get the Vacuum Out
If you are like most people, vacuuming your car is not a cherished activity. However, it is the first step to make in ensuring your safety. A thorough vacuuming helps eliminate all visible debris that may attract microbes. When you vacuum, use extension nozzles to reach hard-to-access areas such as seat crevices, mats, dashboard, door panels and under-pedal areas.
Clean High-Touch Areas
Until scientists discover a vaccine for COVID-19, this highly contagious virus will continue to threaten our health. That’s why it remains important to sanitize and clean all high-touch areas, such as steering wheels, air conditioning controls, radio system buttons and screens. When you clean, use disinfecting wipes that are multi-surface friendly. Clean such areas as door pockets, cup holders and consoles.
The best overall versatile product that can be used on upholstery, plastic, vinyl and glass is ReNuSurface. Not only does ReNuSurface clean a variety of surfaces, it does double duty by extracting, cleaning and removing any unpleasant odors that are far below the surface.
Treat Your HVAC System to a Deep Cleaning
While your engine is the most used component of your vehicle, the HVAC system is a close second. While you can use a spray cleaner with a hose to try and disinfect through the air vents, that method is limiting and won’t eradicate contaminants that lurk inside your system.
The other solution is to get a NuVinAir ReStore treatment at your participating dealership or detail shop. This fifteen-minute treatment will reduce HVAC pollutants, eradicate odor and thoroughly clean the vehicle’s air, bringing the cabin-space back to pinnacle cleanliness. Powered by chlorine dioxide, each treatment generates a dry, hygienic gas which fills the vehicle’s interior and penetrates deeply into all surfaces. The gas rapidly dissipates after dispersion and, when use directions are followed, allows for the safe and rapid re-entry into a clean, contaminant-free vehicle.
