Interior Detailing: Protection From Coronavirus – But is it Enough?

by

I’ve seen a lot of claims on social media in regards to interior detailing protecting consumers from SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 / CORONAVIRUS and I’d like to frame expectations of car owners so they better understand an interior detail is not a “silver bullet” for protecting themselves.

For medical professionals in all likelihood (obviously), there’s absolutely nothing I can offer you in this video. But there are many people being told that an interior detail protects owners from the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 disease facing the world right now. There is a measure of truth to that but as I completed my HAZMAT Tech certification (many years ago …but still, some things remained with me), I have a solid respect of the threats cross-contamination has and I want to stress how cleaning/disinfecting a vehicle’s interior is only a part of protecting oneself and that vigilance is needed to keep that space free of the virus.

Interior detailing is not the “silver bullet” to protect yourself from Coronavirus / COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 and in this video, I will explain exactly why that’s a reality with the most current data available. Meat and potatoes of the video starts (I’m long-winded) here: 7:04

    I worked in healthcare industry for 20+ years. I taught infection control to personnel how to decontaminate table tops, equipment, and other surgical areas. I recommend Sodium Hypochlorite (Corrosive) for the presence of organic matter reduces activity. Chlorine dioxide must be fresh (<14 Days old); kills vegetative organisms within 3 minutes of contact. A rinse with water or alcohol is required after solid surface disinfection. Gluteraldehyde rapidly disinfects surfaces (Note: Asthma and carcinogen risk). Toxic exposure limits have been set by OSHA. Not generally recommended except for surgical instruments and medical devices. The use of PPE is required with these chemicals but it will work.
