The Best Products to Disinfect and Sanitize Your Car
Fort Lauderdale, Florida is home to more than 187,000 people and is one of the most sought-after locations to live in the state. With its large population, it is a strange occurrence to see so many empty roadways during the COVID-19 quarantine lockdown. Though many stores and restaurants are currently closed or only serving curbside, residents still need to leave their homes for basic necessities and essential workers still need to commute. Before the pandemic, people hardly thought about disinfecting their vehicles, but the mindset these days is to sanitize everything. We spend less time in our cars now than we used to, but with the rapid spread of the coronavirus, it is important to make sure that high-touch surfaces are getting cleaned. Our Fort Lauderdale movers want to help keep you safe during COVID-19.
EPA Approved Disinfecting Products
COVID-19 has made the world more aware and cautious of the surfaces we come in contact with once we leave the comfort of our homes. Every day, we open doors to our offices, press buttons on elevators, pick up packages and mail, but now we are more cautious about what we touch and how and are more vigilant about hand-washing. Everything has changed in a few months’ time with new knowledge of COVID-19, but the need for essential items has not.
There are a number of ways to stay safe in public while completing essential tasks like grocery shopping, but once we are back in our cars, it is just as important to make sure that we are keeping it as sanitized as any part of our home. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has created a list of products that are effective in killing the coronavirus, including Clorox, Lysol, Microban, hydrogen peroxide, and Maquat, among others.
When it comes to disinfecting your car, you will want to use sanitizing sprays and wipes such as Lysol or Clorox. Be sure to clean surfaces that are frequently touched such as the door handles, steering wheel, gear shift, keyless ignition, seats, dashboard buttons and knobs, the center console, sun visors, and even the keys.
It is not recommended to use Lysol or Clorox wipes on leather upholstery, but there are special leather disinfecting wipes and sprays designed for leather car seats. The most important part about disinfecting your car is the dry time. You will want to allow upwards of 10 minutes for the disinfectant to dry before touching any surfaces.
Our Fort Lauderdale residential movers work tirelessly to disinfect the moving trucks as a precautionary measure before and after a move in order to prevent the spread of the virus. If you disinfect your car after every outing, you are more likely to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as prevent germs from living on the surface of your car.
