How to Sanitize: Car Coronavirus Protection

Consistency is key when you sanitize a car for coronavirus prevention. Develop a sanitation routine to follow each time you get behind the wheel for essential errands in Woodinville. This should involve disinfecting the surfaces you touch most often while driving. Perform a deep cleaning of your Honda interior once or twice per week. Follow a sanitation checklist to make sure you don’t miss a spot:

Sanitize Your Car: Routine Checklist

Before cleaning your car interior, thoroughly wash your hand and put on a pair of nitrile gloves. Clean with disinfectant wipes or sprays, focusing on non-porous surfaces:

  • Key fob
  • Door handles
  • Steering wheel
  • Interior controls
  • Touchscreens
  • Gear selector
  • Dashboard
  • Seatbelts
  • Mirrors
  • Fuel cap

Sanitize Your Car: Deep-Clean Checklist

As noted above, effective coronavirus preventative measures must include periodic deep cleaning. Thoroughly disinfect the following additional surfaces:

  • Radio control settings
  • Voice control settings
  • Cruise control settings
  • Air conditioner vents
  • Navigation settings
  • Paddle shift levers
  • Gear selector lever
  • Turn indicator stalks
  • Console armrests
  • Display screens
  • Cupholders
  • Cubbyholes

Keeping You and Your Passengers Safe

When it comes to reducing virus transmission, preventative measures are a must. Be prepared to sanitize your car for coronavirus protection each and every time you leave home in Kirkland. Keep these tips in mind before you head out the door:

  • Disinfect high-touch surfaces and objects in your home on a daily basis.
  • Wear a cloth mask that covers your mouth and nose anytime you leave home. Even though only a snug-fitting, N-95 respirator mask can significantly reduce your chances of contracting the virus yourself, a cloth mask reduces the likelihood that you’ll transmit the virus unknowingly to others.
  • When running necessary errands, wear nitrile gloves. Remember to dispose of the gloves after a single use (for example, a trip to the grocery store) so that you don’t inadvertently transport the virus between locations.

Before leaving and after returning home, wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. Remember to lather between your fingers, under your fingernails, and above your wrists.

Cabin Air Filter Replacement
$10 Off

Your vehicle’s cabin air filter helps remove allergens, particulates, and odors from the interior of your vehicle, keeping things nice and fresh. The cabin air filter also helps keep your interior clean, by removing dust from the air. Like all filters, your Honda’s cabin air filter will become clogged over time. As the filter becomes clogged, it will work less efficiently…you’ll get less airflow, more dust, more odors, etc.

If you suffer from allergies, asthma, or a great sense of smell, you NEED to replace your Honda’s Cabin Air Filter on a regular basis. And an OEM replacement is best, as Honda specifies the amount of filtration for each specific system. Some after-market filters are too light, meaning they won’t filter enough air. Other filters are too heavy, which will strain your vehicle’s HVAC system.
