How Many Kinds of Bacteria Lurk in Your Backseat?

By Ziebart International Corporation, Special for  USDR

School has started, after-school activities have started and that means an increase in bacteria and germs starting formation inside your vehicle. A study conducted by Queen Mary University showed that an average of 700 different kinds of bacteria lurk within the interior of your car. In comparison, the average public toilet harbors only 60. Ziebart Corporation (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ziebart International Corporation) recognizes the importance of maintaining a clean and healthy vehicle for your family, and as the vehicle protection experts, they also know how to protect your family against the harmful germs inside your vehicle that can cause a variety of  illnesses.

Bacteria can form from your typical coffee stains, crumbs from your breakfast on-the-go, dirt from extracurricular activities, after school snacks and drinks, and the germs that your family is exposed to when coming in contact with others that don’t wash their hands. Ziebart’s anti-bacterial interior detailing removes 99% of bacteria found inside your vehicle. And, when you addZiebart Germ Defender® to an interior detailing, you create a germ free environment inside your vehicle for an EPA approved minimum of 90  days.

Ziebart Germ Defender protects your family against the harmful germs inside your vehicle that can cause a variety of illnesses such as MRSA, Staph, Type A Influenza, E. coli, Ringworm, Mold, Mildew and H1N1 (Swine  Flu).
