With the emergence of COVID-19, it has become clear that car cleaning measures need to be strengthened to ensure the safety of drivers and occupants, as well as to prevent the spread of the pandemic. If you have a rollover at your service station and you want to offer an additional exterior sanitization service, this post explains everything you need to know to do it correctly, according to the regulations and with all the guarantees of safety and effectiveness.
At ISTOBAL we are at the forefront in the development of advanced technologies in the field of sanitization and we have created an external sanitization program with disinfectant for rollovers. It can be installed in the majority of our rollovers in the ISTOBAL M'NEX range, as well as in the ISTOBAL FLEX5 and ISTOBAL M'START models.
This new sanitization program can be configured at the end of the wash process without rinsing or drying, but achieving maximum sanitization, or in the middle of the wash process, so that the level of sanitization is lower, but the finish of the car is optimal.
The product we recommend for use in this sanitization program is Mida Lufragerm+, a disinfectant with biocidal and virucidal registration, and suitable for disinfection of TP2 and TP4 surfaces. We have tested both its effectiveness in concentrations and application times, as well as its compatibility with different surfaces on the outside of the vehicle, such as bodywork, tyres, wheels or windscreen wipers, so it is completely safe to use in your rollover.
As this is a business open to the general public, you should have an information poster stating that you are using a biocidal product and the product data sheets should be available to users.
For added safety, we have also developed a brush care shampoo that we recommend to avoid the transfer of contamination from one vehicle to another.
As you know, offering this type of additional service in your rollover will allow you to differentiate yourself from other businesses and increase the average ticket by offering added value to your customers. In addition, if your facility is close to public services such as hospitals, medical centres, municipal transportation companies, taxi cooperatives or any private business with a fleet of vehicles, you can take advantage of this new exterior sanitization service to increase your customers.
All this, with the assurance that we are complying with the sanitization and disinfection regulations, and with the technical-commercial advice of our network. Find out now!
