How to Clean and Disinfect Your Car and House, Business office building ?
It is impossible to turn on the television, radio or see a newspaper without hearing about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). What is it and can it make your vehicle sick?
Below is information that will help you make informed decisions on what the best practices are to keep your vehicle as clean as possible while reducing the spread of the virus.
Of course, vehicle cleanliness is only one concern during the outbreak, which is why we’re maintaining a daily update of new incentives, programs and staying safe.
Can my vehicle get sick from the coronavirus?
Nothing will happen to your car, truck or SUV should the coronavirus get onboard. But if not properly cleaned, your vehicle can become a harbor of all manner of unpleasantness. So we suggest taking bottles of hand sanitizer and packets of disinfecting wipes to wipe down the interior of your car and any other area that could be considered a high-touch area.
This applies doubly in the case of rental vehicles, ride-sharing vehicles like Uber and Lyft, share cars, share bikes, and taxis. Be sure to wipe any areas that human hands typically touch. These include door handles, door latches, lock buttons, seat belts and buckles, window buttons, mirrors, radio and climate control buttons and more.
One more bit of advice: We don’t recommend storing a large pump bottle of hand sanitizer in your car. The heat buildup may cause the alcohol in the sanitizer to “boil,” resulting in an expansion of the sanitizer’s bottle. This, in turn, might result in leakage and a mess that will require an extensive cleaning effort. It is a better idea to carry a more manageable-sized bottle, that can be on or near your personal effects, whether in the home, office or on the road.
