Are you at risk? Hidden germs in your car you can’t see

It’s unfortunate, and not something car owners often think about, but your car is the perfect place for germs. But, do you know which parts or areas of your car have the most bacteria? You spend a lot of time in your car, going to work, driving the kids to school and sporting activities and so much more, because of this, it’s important to have your car regularly cleaned by professional mobile car detailing specialists.

Of course, there are parts in your car you touch regularly, and you’d *expect* could be a breeding ground for germs, but there are also areas you’d never even think of. You would automatically assume your steering wheel – which is one of the most touched areas in your car would be the most contaminated, but it’s not. Other areas such as the handbrake, seatbelt button, and drivers footwell are areas where bacteria breeds.

Studies have found that car owners who clean their cars themselves are putting their health and that of their passengers at risk. It comes down to car owners not knowing how to care for their car properly, and especially how to detail their vehicles the way professional car cleaning services do.

Other areas in your car where germs can breed include inside door handles, radio volume control buttons and cup holders, while surprisingly the three cleanest areas in your car are the steering wheel, gear stick and rear-view mirror, despite the fact these areas are the most touched parts of the car.

For your health, and that of your family, it’s important to have your car detailed regularly. Car owners who look after the maintenance of their cars personally on average only wash their car ten times a year, and clean inside their cars even less than that. When you consider a lot of people – and their passengers eat and drink inside a car, or have their pets as passengers, the vacuum cleaner and interior cleaning products should be used more often.

This is one very good reason to call on professional car cleaning services regularly, mobile car detailing isn’t just great for your car, it saves you time AND is good for your health, especially with winter fast approaching the last thing you want to do is put your health at risk. Germs inside your car can lower your resistance, making you more susceptible to colds and flu. Don’t take the chance.

You really should clean, or have your car cleaned more regularly than you think, eating and drinking in the car, carrying children around, all this also influences how clean and germ-free your vehicle can be. Little spills you didn’t know about, food dropped on the floor, it all impacts on your health and wellbeing.

To avoid germs, you need to have your car detailed professionally not only on the outside but on the inside as well. Many people put off washing their car but with mobile auto detailing they come to you, at a time that is convenient for you.
