Coronavirus: How to Disinfect Your Vehicle

By: Kris LeSueur   |   23 Apr 2020

Worried about your car during the coronavirus outbreak? LeSueur Car Company has you covered! Did you know that some research indicates that the Coronavirus stays in your car for about three days? If you are an essential employee and are worried about taking the virus home with you, follow these tips to disinfect your vehicle properly:

  • If you are an essential worker and must be outside around other people, you should disinfect your vehicle daily. If you have more than one vehicle per household, designate an “essential use” vehicle for the essential worker and have him or her use that vehicle only. Use the other vehicle for non-essential/not working family members, especially children and older adults, so they are not exposed as much.

  • Carry hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes in the vehicle with you. Use hand sanitizer on your hands and disinfect your keys each time you get into the car. 

  • Wipe down your steering wheel and controls, gear shift, all buttons and knobs on your dash, console and cup holders and your vehicle door handle inside and out each time you get out of your vehicle.

  • Carry gloves with you and use them at gas pumps. Throw them away before you get in the vehicle.

  • If you have the means at home: wash, vacuum, and wipe down your vehicle inside and out. Clean all surfaces. Clean and vacuum vehicle seats.
