Cabin Sanitization and why it is important

Deodorizing and Sanitizing are different. One involved removing odor while the other is the process to remove viruses and bacteria from the car. Cabin Sanitization no only sanitizes but also remove bad odor and leaves the long lasting fragrance.

Leaving the pandemic behind sanitization is something all car owners should consider seriously. The long term health benefits completely outweigh any possible challenges that one can think off.

This process should be undertaken every four months to really get the most out of your car’s interior. This is because your car’s interior can be home to some nasty germs. All of us know that high touch points in a car’s interiors are carriers for all types to viruses and ensuring they are clean and sanitized is extremely important to provide a safe environment for you and your family.

Car sanitation also removes all foreign chemicals and other contaminants that may cause odors and adverse health effects. And sanitizing isn’t just for older cars it can be a good step for newer ones as well. For instance, the new car smell is a very prized scent even though it’s essentially a mix of chemicals which may contain harmful volatile organic compounds.

How can I do Cabin Sanitization?

 If you’re not sure how to even go about sanitizing your car in a manner that’ll limit your exposure, we’ve got some helpful information below.

Detailed Vacuuming:

  • Vacuuming your car is the fastest way to get rid of tiny dust particles along with any unwanted elements.
  • But before you start vacuuming, make sure that you take all the floor mats and other material out of your car. Keep them safe for sanitization at a later stage.
  • Once you’ve emptied the cabin, start vacuuming the interior, If you are allergic to dust make sure that your mask adequately covers your face.
  • Thoroughly vacuum the carpet area, the under-seat sections, bottle/cup holders, glove-box, and other storage spaces.  

Clean the upholstery:

  • The next thing you need to do is clean the upholstery properly. Isopropyl alcohol serves as an excellent disinfectant on most interior surfaces, such as fabric or leatherette material.
  • But it is not recommended for pure leather seats. Instead, switch to a soap and water solution to clean pure leather upholstery.
  • Use a microfibre towel for the best results.

    However alcohol/soap solutions are known to damage the surface. Instead look for Eco-friendly Upholstery cleaners, One UC is one such option that is very popular.         

Clean high touch point areas:

Areas which are most commonly used or touches are known as high touch point areas and these are also infamous for being carriers of germs and viruses. Focus on the following areas

  • Inner door handles

  • The seatbelts
  • Lock and unlock buttons
  • Interior door release
  • Ignition area
  • Indicator knobs
  • Headlight knobs
  • Gear selector
  • Window buttons

Clean steering wheel and dashboard:

There is no doubt that the steering wheel is the most touched part in a car, not only touched by the driver but by many others who come in contact with the car. Dashboard is another such area which is touched by all including kids who like to keep their hands on the dashboard. Ensuring these are clean and sanitized is important.

Clean the AC Vent:

A clean air-conditioner means clean air. Hence, the entire AC unit also requires to be sanitized regularly. Vents may attract the germs/bacteria from outside, which can later be transmitted to the passengers. Traditional methods include using high pressure air and or brushes, however these just clean the dust and do not have any effect on the germs/bacteria.
