Hygienic Car Interiors

Vehicles encounter contaminants daily, from drivers and young children to animals, food residues, and fluctuating temperatures. It's no wonder that car interiors can be dirtier than the average toilet seat.

According to research from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, over 700 distinct bacterial strains inhabit soft and hard surfaces within a typical vehicle. The study identified the steering wheel, cup holders, and seat belts as areas with the highest concentration of Colony Forming Units (CFUs).

Cleaning your car regularly will help to reduce the microbial load but it isn't enough to completely halt the growth of bacteria. This is where our Biomaster antimicrobial technology can help.
