Automotive Clean-Up: Misunderstood, Misdiagnosed & Often Mishandled

Damage Automobile Interiors Require a High Standard of Care

When a car interior is contaminated or soiled by an accident it is necessary to correctly fix the real problem and not cut corners. Automotive glass breaks can become lodged in the most intricate places only to resurface later and cause injury.  Incidents like flood, fire, pest infestation, or even bodily fluids can result in toxic contamination and lingering odors. The extent of this type of damage is often misunderstood, misdiagnosed and mishandled. Often they are masked over with harsh cleaners that do not address the underlying problem.

Toxic Conditions & Illness

Overlooking the proper cleaning of auto interiors can be the cause of recurring illness. The amount of time spent in such a small area populated by dust, fumes, and disease is a formula for illness.  The “smell test” is not enough and can be misleading.

Common Mistakes

 Use of Ozone Generators

One of the most common but dangerous methods of cleaning contaminated vehicles is the use of harsh chemicals followed by an Ozone treatment. This practice has been condemned by the EPA yet no laws prohibit its use. For this reason many still view it as an effective solution when in fact it is compounding the problem. This is another shortcut with significant consequences.

Surface Cleaning

Many stains or spills can be cleaned using shampoos but those that soak through to the underlying padding or permeate the cars ventilation require additional attention. If this padding cannot be cleaned it must be replaced to prevent the problem from resurfacing. 

Auto Detailing

Similar to your local car wash, auto detailing is designed for general cleaning of the vehicle. When a potentially toxic or deep rooted problem exists, it needs someone who can go to the heart of the matter and restore the vehicle to new condition.

Pennywise, Pound (Dollar) Foolish

Proper treatment may cost more but is often covered by insurance. If you have a serious problem it pays to explore proper remediation. Your car is generally your second largest investment and you need to protect this investment as you would your home. The cars longevity, value, and enjoyment are important considerations. You owe it to yourself to explore permanent remedies and not cut corners.
