How to Disinfect Your Jaguar and Minimize the Spread of Coronavirus

With a lot of information about the Coronaviruses going around online, many people are wondering about the Coronavirus preventative measures they can take to help stop the spread of it. At Rusnak/Pasadena Jaguar, we want to help our neighbors in the community stay safe and healthy – that’s our priority. One way to do this is by disinfecting your vehicle’s interior. Whether you are working on the front lines in a hospital near Los Angeles, working long hours in a Burbank grocery store, or helping your elderly parents, there’s a chance your vehicle is a high-touch area. This is why Rusnak/Pasadena Jaguar has your service tips on how to disinfect your vehicle’s interior.

What is Coronavirus? 

The Coronavirus can cause moderate to severe symptoms similar to the flu or a terrible cold. The new COVID-19 strain is quickly spreading, and it can lead to serious or life-threatening symptoms for many people who contract the virus. That’s why our team is working to provide the Pasadena community with helpful information about the Coronavirus and what we can do to stop it from spreading. 

First, wash your hands! Wash them frequently, and be sure to wipe down any high-touch surfaces with a disinfectant wipe. If you have to leave your house for groceries or to take care of your elderly family members, be sure to always wear a mask and gloves.

Coronavirus Preventative Measures: Disinfecting Your Car’s Interior

Many people are spending lots of time making sure their home is clean and sanitized, but they have neglected to wipe down their vehicle’s interior. You do not need to clean the entire interior, you only need to focus on these areas:

  • Interior and exterior door handles
  • Cupholders
  • Display screens
  • Seats
  • Air conditioner vents
  • Door and center console armrests
  • Steering wheel

Don’t scrub the surfaces too hard – you can damage the interior. We recommend using a soft, non-abrasive wiping material.

Avoid These Products

Because newer vehicles have vinyl and plastic surfaces, you need to avoid using hydrogen peroxide and bleach. Yes, they’re excellent to use as cleaning products because they kill germs, but they will damage the interior. Be sure none of the products contain ammonia, which is a common ingredient in glass cleaners.
