Your car contains billions of bacteria ready to get you sick

UNIGLASSPLUS / ZIEBART launches Germ Defender™: an exclusive product that eliminates 99% of the germs inside your vehicle and prevents new bacteria from developing.

  • According to a study done by the University of Birmingham, England, the interior of a car contains 9 times more bacteria than a toilet seat.
  • GERM DEFENDER™ is an ecological antimicrobial treatment. It is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and does not use any heavy metals.

LAVAL, QC, March 14, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - According to microbiology researchers at the Birmingham University, the interior of your car is a real nest of germs potentially dangerous for your health. This is certainly not surprising, since the inside of the vehicle is exposed to heat and moisture: two factors favoring the multiplication of fungi and bacteria.

The steering wheel alone contains over 700 types of bacteria per square inch. Keep in mind that the wheel is the first thing you touch when entering your vehicle. Many people also eat or apply makeup while driving, this greatly increases the spread of bacteria inside the vehicle as well.

The most alarming is that among these bacteria's we find staphylococcus; responsible food poisoning; Bacillus cereus and the E. Coli bacteria that can trigger symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Not to mention the type A influenza virus, mold, mildew and fungi. These bacteria's can cause serious illness if surfaces are not regularly cleaned and disinfected.
