Is your car really germ-free?

For many of us, our car is like our second home. We use our cars as essential transportation for work, dropping the kids off at school or a set of wheels for a trip. Despite spending so much time in the car, very few of us actually keep our vehicles clean and by clean we are not just referring to an external car wash. The sanitization of your car from inside is more important than many people realize.

If you believe that touching a public elevator button or sitting on a public toilet is bad and can spread diseases, the germs found at a gas pump might send shivers up your spine. Compared to other public locations where the germ count was in the hundreds, the average gas pumps measure in the millions. Some bacteria, like E-Coli & Staphylococcus, which are found in our surroundings, are responsible for a multitude of complications like skin infections, food poisoning and toxic shock syndrome.

According to a study conducted by Queen Mary University, London, it was found that a car’s steering wheel has four times more bacteria on it than on a public toilet seat.

Most of us have no idea how harmful it is to not disinfect our cars. Surface cleaning just helps in cleaning the stains and some contaminants on the outside and leads to a shiny looking car. But the microorganisms present inside the car cannot be seen. With automobiles being a confined space, it is very easy for bacteria and viruses to grow and spread. This is why a thorough disinfection of the car is very important.

As many people don’t tend to sanitize their cars, layers start to build up, and when the sun rays fall directly on the car, it warms up making the vehicle a reproducing ground for the germs and viruses. It just takes around 30 minutes at high temperature for microorganisms to multiply.

According to experts, it is stated that more than 800 types of microorganisms which include various types of deadly viruses and bacteria can grow in your car if not cleaned regularly. The air conditioner of the car acts as the breeding ground for microbes. Also the high contact zones of the car such as the steering wheel, doorknobs, gear stick and seat belts have germs and bacteria on them.
