Yes it really can do that. Many of us spend as much time in our car as we spend inside our homes each day. Having the outside of the car washed is great to keep it shiny. But does a shiny car make it a clean car? Think again. Failing to clean the interior can not only leave your car looking bad inside but the neglect could be making you sick. The build-up of germs, mold, pollen and dust can cause recurring illness. Germs can hitch a ride on the places drivers touch with their hands, such as the radio, gear shift, keys, and wheel. So let’s take a look at what can creep into your car and find out If you can combat illness from your car??
A study conducted in Queen Mary University in London showed that, on average 700 different kinds of bacteria can be found inside cars. Only 60 types are found in the average public toilet. That is a great deal of germs and should make you stop to consider whether steering your car is even safe to do with that number of germs possibly being on it. The interior of your car needs to be regularly cleaned with an anti-bacterial cleaner to remove germs from the surface areas. Also you should keep hand sanitizer handy in the car to use when you exit the car. A monthly professional cleaning and a bi-yearly detailing will keep germs at bay!
Dust mites can cause some problems with breathing ability in asthma or allergy sufferers. These tiny creatures can’t be seen but they can wreak havoc on your lungs. Dust mites make themselves comfortable in upholstered fabric. Take time to vacuum your carpet upholstery and floor mats one time per week. This will reduce the dust mites you probably have crawling around your car. Dust mites love spills so keep towels in your car to quickly wipe up spills. A monthly professional car or trucking cleaning and a bi-yearly detailing will remove a great deal of dust mites!
Pollen can build up inside card. Using a disinfectant wipe to wipe dust and germs form the dash and consoles can help cut down on allergy attacks from flower and plant pollen. If you are sensitive to pollen you may even want to clean the the heating and cooling ducts. A monthly professional cleaning and a bi-yearly detailing will keep pollen from infesting your car or truck!
All it takes for mold to grow is moisture and warm breeding ground. Mold does not just look bad, but can cause a bad odor in your car and can be dangerous to breathe in. It can grow in the carpet of the car and in the trunk as well as on the seats due to spillage. Mold can be extremely dangerous for people with mold allergies. Mold is extremely worrisome if you ever have to have your car shipped a long distance. The car will be closed up and kept inside a warm container. When you retrieve your car be sure and have it cleaned before you drive the car again. A monthly car wash will catch a mold problem before it begins and if you have a larger problem, a full detailing may be needed.
