PermaSafe Interior Vehicle Protection
PermaSafe Vehicle Disinfection and Long-Term Antimicrobial System
Our cars are like a second home, but let’s be honest – we don’t keep them quite as clean as our homes.
Whether you’re an Uber or taxi driver who transports hundreds of people throughout the year, or you are your vehicle’s lone occupant the majority of the time, your vehicle harbors tons of harmful bacteria. In fact, we’ve read that the average vehicle harbors NINE TIMES more bacteria than the average public toilet seat! It makes sense, when you think about it. Every time you get in and out of your vehicle, various germs and bacteria are introduced to the interior. No matter how much hand sanitizer you use when you’re out and about, chances are that some harmful microbes are going to make it into your vehicle and propagate on your steering wheel, dash buttons, cupholders, seats, and HVAC system. Every time you pick up a friend or family member, or cruise with your four-legged friend, the risks skyrocket.
Sounds pretty gross, right? We never really took the time to think about just how dirty our cars really are until the COVID-19 Pandemic. Now, the risks of transporting passengers (and pups!), grocery shopping, and eating in our cars, are more significant than ever!
That’s okay though. Here at Bustard’s Auto Detailing, we have a solution – PermaSafe SHIELD.
PermaSafe is a state-of-the-art Vehicle Disinfection and Long-Term Antimicrobial Protection System engineered specifically for automotive use. It’s effective on all interior surfaces, and provides continuous antimicrobial control, eliminating over 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, fungi, mould, mildew, and other harmful microbes which can be hazardous to passenger health.
How It Works
Most conventional disinfectants and antimicrobials kill microbes by poisoning them with toxic chemicals. They are designed to both act and dissipate quickly to avoid harming humans and animals. Unfortunately, this means the antimicrobial capabilities evaporate quickly.
Unlike conventional antimicrobials, PermaSafe SHIELD is a non-corrosive, non-hazardous, odour-free, environmentally-neutral product that can remain antimicrobially active for months. As the below video explains, once applied, the antimicrobial agent in PermaSafe SHIELD causes a chemical reaction that allows the product to molecularly bond to the surface to which it is applied – becoming a permanent part of that surface. Because the cell walls of harmful microorganisms are negatively charged, they are electrostatically drawn towards the positively charged spikes, which impale and electrostatically “shock” the microbes.
As the coating dries, millions of microscopic antimicrobial “spike-like” appliances form and extend from the surface. These “spikes” are long chains of positively charged atoms that represent a deadly dual threat to microbes.
….Sound a little too science-y for you? It did for us, too. In a nutshell, PermaSafe SHIELD provides short-term and long-term protection of your vehicle against harmful microbes by providing initial germ-killing power, then basically makes the interior of your vehicle a self-sanitizing machine that lasts for months.
Can’t go wrong with that kind of protection during a pandemic!
PermaSafe at Bustard’s Auto Detailing
PermaSafe’s EPA registered product is professionally applied with specialized “fogging” equipment that atomizes and propels the disinfectant throughout the vehicle’s passenger cabin, HVAC system, and storage spaces, enabling complete 360 DEGREE coverage for every surface.
PermaSafe must be applied to a relatively clean surface. If your vehicle is not clean, we would suggest bundling your PermaSafe treatment with a Wash & Vac Supreme (minimum, other packages are available depending how intensively you wish to have your vehicle detailed). If your vehicle’s interior is relatively clean, our team will wipe down all plastics in your vehicle with a disinfectant prior to applying the treatment. Our team is committed to both your health and safety, and the health and safety of our team, and we always wear proper PPE when we treat or detail your vehicle.
The starting price for Permasafe application is $99 + HST (additional charges may apply for SUVs and trucks), which includes a sanitizing wipe down of the interior of your vehicle prior to application. We offer a $10 discount for all Uber and taxi drivers (sedans starting at $89), so you can be sure that you and your passengers remain safe in your vehicle.
If your vehicle is a little messy (no judgement!), or you’re looking for a more thorough clean, PermaSafe application can be bundled with any of the detailing packages we offer. Our popular Wash & Vac Supreme service, which includes a full exterior wash, vacuum, and sanitization of high-touch surfaces, can be bundled with the PermaSafe product application starting at $159 + HST (additional charges may apply for SUVs and trucks). If you are looking for something more, please call us today at (519) 884-5868 and our team would be happy to put together a quote for you!
