How to Sanitize Your Kia of Coronavirus

Cleaning a car dashboard

When you upgrade to a new or used Kia with us, we become your automotive partner for life. That means we have your back when it comes to keeping your vehicle in top condition. Now more than ever, it is important to routinely clean your vehicle to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Learning how to sanitize your car of Coronavirus will ensure you are doing your part to flatten the curve. Learn more about how to sanitize your car for Coronavirus as well as other germs and infectious diseases with the experts at Ray Brandt Kia below!


Keep You and Your Passengers Safe 

Preventing infectious diseases from spreading depends upon strong individual habits. Every time you leave the house, keep the following in mind:

  • Ensure that every trip out is a safe one. Wear a face mask, gloves, and be sure to follow all local guidelines for social distancing. 
  • Wash your hands thoroughly when you return home, even if you wore personal protective equipment. 
  • Travel with a small bottle of hand sanitizer to add extra protection.

Protip: Avoid leaving a large pump bottle of hand sanitizer in your car, as the warm summer temperatures can cause the bottle to explode, creating a mess.


Proper Car Sanitizing Materials

When you want to learn how to sanitize your car of Coronavirus, you must start with the proper supplies. Disinfectant wipes are your best bet for sanitizing the interior and exterior of your vehicle. Viruses and germs can latch on to your vehicle, so any high-contact areas should be properly wiped. 

Soap and water can also be used to wipe down your car. However, you don’t want to be overzealous in your scrubbing as too much elbow grease can actually damage your vehicle’s surfaces. A gentle yet thorough approach is best. Additionally, you want to avoid bleach, hydrogen peroxide, and ammonia-based cleaners when sanitizing your vehicle of Coronavirus, as harsh cleaners can damage the pristine finish of your Kia. 


Giving Your Kia a Deep Clean  

When you have assembled the proper cleaning gear, you want to focus on the areas that are prone to be exposed to bacteria, viruses, and other germs. Wipe down your seats and pay special attention to the following areas:

  • Steering wheel 
  • Control buttons for navigation, air conditioning, etc. 
  • Paddle shift levers
  • Gear selector lever 
  • Turn indicator stalks
  • Console armrests
  • Display screens
  • Cupholders
  • Cubbyholes
  • Air conditioner vents
  • Door handles
