Are you really a car lover?
Then let’s drive back in time to those beautiful days when you saw a supercar zooming past the roads of famous hotspots of your city.
Just within 2 Seconds, all ears and eyes turned to the Growling Loud Shots of sound Made by those speedy road riders. You could easily spot a Porsche, Lamborghini or Maserati gliding on the curvy roads. Be it the Marine Drive in Mumbai, Riverfront in Ahmedabad or Busy streets of Bengaluru.
The excitement and surprise was the same everywhere. Life was all good until Covid-19 was reported and eventually we saw lockdown getting imposed all over our country.
Deserted Streets, Deserted Highways. Jam packed parking in the basements of residential societies. An unexpected long break on our journeys and commute.
But we have to agree, that Covid-19 made us realize the importance of hygiene.
Hygiene for all enclosed spaces like cars, homes and offices. So much, that now we even ensure cleanliness for all the high touch surfaces.
Things have Changed!
As per the recent study scientists decoded how airflow inside car may affect Covid-19 transmission risk
Well that’s how Permagard India comes up with this latest blog that helps you ensure best Car care and hygiene in COVID after everything resumes back to normal.
So, lets’ start with,
“Why you need Good Car Care and Hygiene in COVID?”
Today’s Cars have host of super rich features that go beyond the basic purpose of only driving and travelling.
- We charge our smartphones
- We talk to people by using smart speakers
- We install good music system
- We eat snacks bought from a drive-in
- We carry our pets in them
And the list keeps expanding.
All these points are mostly related to the car interiors. It’s because, enclosed spaces are more prone to germs build-up.
Whereas Car Exteriors will always catch your attention and they’ll anyways get a nice car wash every morning.
But, Germ Hotspots are found on both Car Exteriors and Car Interiors. And before going deeper, let’s pick up the reasons on the need of Good Car Care and hygiene in COVID.
4 Important Reasons to Maintain Car Hygiene
- Dust Formation: Even after you ensure that all surfaces are wiped with utmost care, dust will always find its’ way through the tiny pores found on the surfaces.
- Dirty Hands: You pick up things, you touch clothes and you work on so many other stuff by using co-ordination of both hands. And when your hands are not washed properly or missed sanitization, then the risk of bacteria and virus strains spreading from one surface to another increases beyond imagination.
- Food Stains: The Coffee you sip inside your car, the meals you eat and the little amount of oil leaking from your tiffin box, if leftover on interiors, will spoil the fabric and texture. These stinky stains will even spoil the air you breathe inside your car. So, that’s quite unhygienic and will demand good amounts spent on replacing the car interiors.
- Infrequent Cleaning: It’s pretty understandable that you are working hard and find less time to get your car washed or cleaned on a daily basis. It may even happen that you have to travel long distances for commuting to work.As a result, the exteriors and interiors of your car will go through build-up of germs, microbes and harmful contaminants that go unchecked and are not visible to our eyes.
