We’ve all become much more conscious of personal hygiene over the last few weeks, to try to protect ourselves from infection from the COVID-19 virus. As you wash your hands and clean your home it’s a good time to also think about a little-known source of germs and potential illness in your life – your car.

Not surprisingly your car is a storehouse of bacteria brought in through your shoes, hands, clothing, pets, food and drink spills and air flows. Some microbes can persist in that environment for a period of time. While you might wash yourself every day and the outside of your car every couple of weeks, you’re probably not cleaning the inside of your car well enough to properly protect your health and those of your passengers.

Let’s have a look at the danger spots.

The carpets.

Our car is one of the few indoor spaces we don’t think twice about entering without wiping our feet. That means we’re transferring all the gathered muck and microbes of the outdoors and public spaces onto our car carpets and mats. This is topped up with all the food and drink we spill onto those surfaces and any skin or hair shed by us or our pets.

Air conditioning systems.

Many microbes are small enough to be transmitted by air or in small droplets of liquid. Car air conditioning systems can store these threats if they are not cleaned regularly.

The steering wheel and handles.

A steering wheel is a storehouse of germs and we’ve devoted a separate blog to explaining the risks and how we can help.

At Zoom Carwash, we understand the risk posed by car-bound germs to your health. Our detailing team uses highly effective, eco-friendly products to thoroughly clean the interior of your vehicle.

Our advanced car shampoos penetrate deep into the fibres of your car carpet and mats to ensure they don’t just look clean, they are clean. We follow this up with an effective vacuuming treatment to ensure we remove any causes of new germ outbreaks.

Currently, every detail also includes a complimentary anti-bacterial clean of your steering wheel, handles and car air conditioning system.

Let us help you and your family to enjoy a cleaner, safer environment and reduce your risk of picking up infections. We have a wide range of detailing packages and you can choose the option that’s right for you at:
