Coronavirus the global pandemic that is shuttering all public places and people are looking to clean and disinfect everything to avoid spread the virus. Patrick Horrigan from We Care Car Care Car Detailing share the following tips.

According the CDC, Coronavirus can live on a solid surface up to 4 days. Some medical experts through published reports have been suggesting that some viruses can live up to 9 days on a solid surface. This does not factor in the sun. Sunlight, or UV radiation can actually kill viruses in minutes under direct full sunlight exposure. Most newer vehicles have some form of UV protection in their glass, even on clear glass, there is still UV rays hitting the inside of your vehicle killing virus. Factor in the minimum of 14 days quarantine time, when you are cleared to leave your house there is no virus left alive in your car. While we strongly believe in having a nice clean germ free car all the time, Its important to have the car disinfected from an actual or suspected exposure is when that vehicle needs to be put in service right away such as in the case of a company-owned vehicle or a vehicle shared by multiple drivers.

By Patrick Horrigan

What should I use to clean or desinfect my car?

1.- Centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) has in they website has a complete list of household cleaners available can kill Coronavirus. Important not all products are not safe to use on all surfaces in your car.

2.- Cleaners to be effective you need to leave the product on the surface for three minutes or more to allow it to air dry.

3.- Leather seats and trim are coated in vinyl, clear coat or soft-touch buttons and many surfaces around the car has a rubber based material.
Anything containing alcohols can break down, weaken or destroy these surfaces. When using CDC certified products on your car you should test it in an inconspicuous spot first and make sure its a pH balanced cleaner.

4.- Important not to spray product directly on the surface. You could overspray onto surfaces that do not like cleaners like touchscreens, glass or electronics. You should spray into a towel first then wipe. It’s best to use quality microfiber towels or a lint free paper towel.

Cleaning and desinfecting

5.- Use Vacuum to start cleaning your car.

6.- When finished vacuuming, Clean and wipe all surfaces of your car not just the obvious things like door handles and steering wheel, you should really clean and wipe down every last inch of your interior.

7.- You will want to avoid anything containing silicone (Like traditional Armour-All). Silicone may make it look nice and shiny but that will be a dirt and dust magnet after. Silicone can also damage some surfaces after repeated use. You will want to use a natural finish “Interior Detailer” . A good Interior detailer will offer some UV protection and help with dirt and dust buildup.

8.- Do not use an ammonia based glass cleaner like you may use around your house. You want a alcohol based glass cleaner, and something that is safe to use on your touchscreens of your infotainment system and screens in your dash. Another item always overlooked is your key fob.

9.- Cleaning your car more often makes the job go quicker.

10.- Get a Professional base Interior detail Cleaning: as they attack the germs with a few different methods. The most safe and proven method is an ozone machine that converts oxygen molecules into ozone or O3.

We are describing the difference between auto glass categories, Aftermarket, OEE and OEM

Lets start by what is Genuine or OE? this Glass was installed when your vehicle was manufactured and they carry company logo it doesn’t have necesary different quality than OEM.

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Made by glass manufacturers for placement in vehicles as they produced can usually be identified by the auto manufacturer’s logo near the bug information.

OEE, Made by glass manufacturers who also produce OEM glass. Made to the same quality & manufacturing standards as OEM with one main difference: the logo. You will not see an auto manufacturer’s logo on a piece instead you might see a glass manufacturer logo (such as Pilkington) or no logo at all.

Aftermarket, Glass made by a company that does not manufacture OEM glass, Made to a wider quality & manufacturing standard than OEM These glass parts will also not feature a logo from the automotive manufacturer, and will usually be sold at a lower price and often are the consumers favorite looking for a simple windshield at a more budget friendly price

Historic: No children died in traffic accidents in Norway in 2019 following this recommendations.

According to Norway Safe Traffic,

  • This is the best way to insure children in the car.
  • Tighten the seat belt over the shoulder and hip, up to the thighs.
  • Make sure the seat belt is not above the belly, under the arm, behind the back or worn in other ingenious ways.
  • Check regularly that the seat belt is properly seated.
  • Take off the thick jackets and outer suits.
  • Verify that the phone, tablet and other items are not loose in the car.

As the authorities comment, although the children are well insured in the car, it should be for adults, since people who have died 33% did not wear seat belts.

  Therefore, they will continue to significantly strengthen efforts in road safety work, said the Director of Safe Traffic.
