Automotive Industry

Every industry has faced challenges in recent years, with the automotive industry being no exception. Ensuring customer confidence is paramount, and maintaining a clean, pathogen-free environment is crucial. Dealerships should prioritize the safety and well-being of their customers through superior surface management and pathogen prevention.

Keeping Employees and Customers Safe

The auto industry has made several adjustments to ensure the safety and well-being of both employees and customers. Dealerships are prioritizing the disinfection of high-traffic areas such as showrooms, break rooms, waiting areas, elevators, stairways, and the cars themselves. High-touch surfaces in vehicles, including steering wheels, cupholders, and gear shifts, receive special attention. 

To maintain these high standards of cleanliness, dealerships must invest in advanced disinfection tools like electrostatic sprayers. These sprayers ensure comprehensive and efficient coverage, reaching every corner and surface with ease. By continuing rigorous disinfection practices, dealerships can provide a safer environment, instill customer confidence, and demonstrate their commitment to health and safety.

Ongoing use of electrostatic sprayers helps maintain a pathogen-free environment, essential for protecting both employees and customers. Investing in this technology is a proactive step towards sustaining high standards of cleanliness and safety in the automotive industry.


Spray and Wipe Statistics vs EMist

Automotive Statistics

The average person spends 17,600 minutes behind the wheel of a car each year, that’s 17,600 minutes sitting in a space that hosts over 700 different bacterium. The bacteria that live in cars can lead to illnesses like Staphylococcus and Propionibacterium that cause food poisoning, MRSA and other infections.

Steering wheels, cup holders and gear shifts are three of the most common places to find germs in a car. The steering wheel has more germs on it than a gas pump handle and a public toilet seat. The inside of a car is 2,144 times dirtier than the average phone screen. Rideshares are becoming more popular and are also 33% more infected than rental cars, making them a hotspot for spreading illnesses. These statistics alone prove why it is so important for car dealerships to disinfect cars before and after they are touched by anyone.

Preventing the spread of germs

With so many germs and the increased risk of infection, it’s easy to see why it is recommended that the inside of cars be cleaned every two weeks. The EMist™ Electrostatic Disinfectant System makes it easier to prevent the spread of infection inside cars. It allows you to quickly and effectively disinfect the inside of your car without using toxic chemicals.

TruElectrostatic for TruDisinfection.

Our EMist® system applies disinfectant solutions with its patented technology to surfaces using electrostatic induction charging. The liquid droplets are positively charged by the spray system which is then driven to the surface target area in a consistent manner allowing for comprehensive uniform coverage. Simply put, our technology applies more evenly, sticks to surfaces like a magnet, and reduces waste drastically.
