Sanitization has become an additional service that more and more users of car wash services are looking for. Reinforcing vehicle cleaning measures to increase the safety of drivers and occupants has become particularly important with the emergence of COVID-19. If you have jet wash bays in your service station and you want to offer an additional exterior sanitization service, this post explains how 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 jet wash bays. It can be installed on new machines of the ISTOBAL n'joyavant, n'joypack30 and n'joypack40 models, as well can be adapted to the old equipment of these models with an upgrade kit.
This new sanitization program should be used as the final stage. A complete conventional wash with a final rinse must be performed before use. After this, a low-pressure spray program with diluted disinfectant chemical is used.
The product we recommend for use in this sanitization program is Mida Lufragerm+, a high-performance disinfectant with virucidal and bactericidal properties for the hygiene of contact surfaces. We have tested their compatibility with different surfaces on the outside of the vehicle, such as bodywork, tyres, wheels or windscreen wipers, so they are completely safe to use in your jet wash.
The ISTOBAL disinfectant product in jet wash facilities is applied at a very low concentration due to its high effectiveness, so it is not necessary to use PPE when applying it. However, and in view of the current pandemic situation, we recommend the use of gloves and mask during the manual wash process.
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.
As you know, offering this type of additional service in a jet wash will allow you to differentiate yourself from other businesses by offering added value to your customers and increase the average ticket. 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!
