BOSTON — As a global pandemic is shuttering schools, businesses and major sports leagues, people stuck at home are looking to clean and disinfect everything they come into contact with.
Auto detailer Patrick Horrigan told Boston 25 News his business has been inundated with calls from people looking to get their car detailed or deep cleaned.
Horrigan says you should clean your car regularly beyond the periodic deep cleans you may get with a detailing. He said steering wheels can be extremely dirty and many people spend a lot of time in their cars commuting.
He adds there are a lot of different surfaces in your vehicle to take into account when selecting products to use and procedures on how to clean them. For example, most leather seats and trim are coated in vinyl or a clear coat which is a lot more resistant to stronger cleaning products and can stand up to a fair amount of light scrubbing.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers tips for disinfecting and cleaning your household surfaces. You should follow CDC guidelines when cleaning.
