At Scottsdale Maserati, it’s important to us that our Scottsdale customers stay safe — whether you’re grabbing groceries, picking up prescriptions, or topping off your gas tank. Preventing the spread of viruses and other harmful germs starts with knowledge, including how to sanitize your car — and how to sanitize a car for coronavirus without damaging the upholstery.

Read the guide below from your local auto exports at Scottsdale Maserati to make sure you’re doing everything possible when it comes to coronavirus preventative measures in your Maserati.



Keeping You and Your Passengers Safe

To effectively reduce transmission of the coronavirus, preventative measures are a must. Be prepared every time you step out your front door in Scottsdale with the following tips:

  • Regularly disinfect high-touch surfaces and objects in your home.
  • Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose. Keep in mind that only a snug-fitting, N95 respirator mask can reduce your chances of contracting a virus yourself, but even a cloth mask will greatly reduce the likelihood that you transmit the virus unknowingly to others.
  • Wear nitrile gloves when making necessary trips outside your home. Remember to dispose of the gloves after one use (such as a trip to the grocery store) so that you don’t inadvertently transport viruses between locations.
  • Before leaving and after returning home, wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. Remember to lather between your fingers, under your fingernails, and above your wrists.

If you haven’t been spending much time out on the roads, you might want to know how to keep an unused car healthy!

Sanitation Supplies to Keep in Your Car

  • Package of disinfectant wipes for wiping down car surfaces.
  • Pocket-sized bottle of alcohol-based hand sanitizer to use before and after errands.
  • A box each of small, medium, and large nitrile gloves.

What Are the Best Car Sanitizing Materials?

Now that you know how to sanitize your car effectively with alcohol-based disinfectant wipes or sprays, you may be wondering how to clean leather car seats. Alcohol- or bleach-based cleaners may discolor leather, so you should use your usual leather cleaner designed specifically for Maserati seat materials. Hot water and soap will also work as a disinfectant. You might also invest in seat covers that are easier to clean. Accessories like seat covers and leather cleaner are available in our online parts catalog.
