Autoglass has introduced a new sanitisation service to help fleets protect their drivers and any passengers, by providing a cleaner and safer environment.
In order to help to protect drivers during the ongoing pandemic, Autoglass has introduced a new full interior sanitisation service to enhance its existing cleaning procedures carried out by technicians.
The new service, says Autolglass, is an additional service that treats the whole of the vehicle’s interior, including upholstery, carpets and hard-to-reach areas such as air vents.
Greg Stansfield, head of sales at Autoglass, said: “Protecting both drivers and technicians is always our top priority but is now more important than ever.
“Fleet services have a duty of care to ensure the vehicles are as safe and clean as possible to protect the driver. To support our fleet customers with this we have launched our enhanced sanitisation service, Full Interior, which is designed to reassure drivers and their passengers that all areas of their vehicle have been fully sanitised.”
The deep clean consists of professional anti-bacterial and anti-viral fogging which involves releasing a fine spray of disinfectant throughout the vehicle, plus vacuuming, and is aimed at restoring vehicle hygiene following repair work.
The disinfectant is designed to kill and protect against 99.99% of viruses and bacteria, giving drivers peace of mind that professional sanitisation measures have been put in place to ensure that the vehicle is thoroughly cleaned, it says.
Before and after tests completed by Autoglass have shown the effectiveness of full interior sanitisation on different areas of a vehicle, it added. For example, the bacteria levels on a steering wheel decreased by 98% after treatment.
Standard touchpoint cleaning is undertaken by technicians at all appointments as part of the Belron Way Of Fitting and is designed to protect the driver and technician during the transfer of the vehicle. All vehicle touchpoints that the technician will come into contact with during a repair or replacement are cleaned with a disinfectant both before and after the appointment.
