While COVID-19 has affected us in a thousand different ways, one of the many unforeseen outcomes is that because people are driving less, vehicle maintenance is being neglected. That neglect has costly implications.
According to Hankook Tire Gauge Index, almost half (48 percent) of Americans have either put off or cancelled car maintenance appointments. Over 70 percent of car owners did not even do routine maintenance such as topping off fluids.
Many people mistakenly believe that if they are driving less, they have fewer chances for experiencing car problems. Cars not used regularly have a higher probability of battery failure, corrosion buildup on cylinder walls and build-up on both brake pads and rotors. All of these conditions can lead to a breakdown or accident. And, with winter weather approaching, now is the perfect time to get your vehicle prepped for cold, snow, and ice. Schedule your maintenance and make sure you get an oil change, change spark plugs, and check the coolant level.
And did you know: The importance of keeping our vehicles clean and healthy has risen the past six months to now being a top priority. When you schedule your winter car maintenance, ask your dealership or auto shop for NuVinAir’s latest product, ReKlenz-X, which has received approval from the EPA as an eco-friendly disinfectant.
ReKlenz-X kills 99.9 percent of germs, bacteria, and viruses in a vehicle’s interior without compromising the integrity of the cabin. The product is on the EPA’s “List N,” which includes disinfectants for use to combat SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
To clean, the proprietary product uses an oxygen-enriched formula to quickly kills bacteria and viruses by destroying their cell walls through a process called oxidation. According to NuVinAir, ReKlenz-X contains no harsh chemicals, sticky residue, or dangerous volatile organic compounds. The result is a disinfected vehicle with no chemical smell.
ReKlenz-X is available in 32-ounce spray bottles through automotive dealerships, detail shops, rental-car companies, service centers, and vehicle fleets.
