Cleaning or sanitizing a vehicle will not kill viral pathogens like those found during the Covid-19 outbreak. The best method to fight off these pathogens is through disinfection – which only takes place after cleaning and sanitizing. This process can be labor intensive without the right equipment and disinfectants. Carology already has the equipment, products, and experience required to fight the spread of germs inside and outside of vehicles.
Expedia conducted a “Driving with Germs” study and the results are eye-opening…
ACCORDING TO THE STUDY:
“We pulled the numbers for the average amount of bacteria per square centimeter, or colony-forming units (CFU), to see which commonly touched surfaces of an average vehicle harbor the most bacteria, then compared them to public surfaces many of us touch on a daily basis.”
“The average steering wheel, which was found to have 629 CFU per square centimeter, was far dirtier than some of the most frequently touched spaces, including…”
The steering wheel easily has the most germs, the next “Top 5” germ-infested areas of a vehicle are…
How can Carology protect the health of your passengers?
Before the outbreak, Carology was already disinfecting vehicles to fight all types of viruses and it only made sense to offer it on a larger scale. To preserve our quality detail work, we began searching for a bleach and alcohol-free product in higher quantities - ultimately choosing Apter Disinfecting Cleaner. This product has been “pre-approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use against emerging enveloped viral pathogens and can be used during the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.”
Our Covid-19 “Hot Spot” Disinfecting service is being offered to companies in the Tyler Area in conjunction with our onsite detailing. Our goal is to prevent an office outbreak when employees return to work.

"In a quest to find out how germy the inside of an average car is, We surveyed 1,000 drivers to see how often people actually vacuum and sanitize the inside of their vehicles.
A shocking 32 percent of drivers rarely clean out the inside of their vehicle — doing so only once a year. Another 12 percent responded that they never even clean the inside of their car. "
