What is the CV1 Shot and How Does it Neutralise Viruses?

What is the CV1 shot and how does it neutralise the coronavirus in white text over a car interior
Does your car need an MOT or service but you’re worried about taking it to the garage for fear of coming into contact with COVID-19? Well, don’t panic because we have a way to help you!
Car maintenance is vital to keeping the roads safe and, as there is no MOT extension like the 1st lockdown, you MUST keep your car in roadworthy condition. But Coronavirus particles can survive on hard surfaces for up to 72 hours – isn’t giving your car to a mechanic too much of a risk?
Not necessarily. Not only do mechanics wear protective equipment such as masks and gloves during the test, there’s also a brand-new product specifically launched to combat the Coronavirus.
Introducing the CV1 shot! A residue-free disinfectant neutraliser that’s 99.99% effective against COVID-19 and available to add onto any MOT or service booking for just £25!* (*subject to garages having access to the CV1 shot)

How does the CV1 shot solve this problem?

The ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) recommend the CV1 shot as a disinfectant to use against COVID-19! It’s predominantly made of Benzalkonium Chloride and contains 90% alcohol. It also completes its work in less than 7 minutes. What’s more, it gives you a completely disinfected vehicle, residue-free – unlike many conventional cleaning methods!

Once activated, the CV1 shot aerates your cabin, settling on and cleaning important touchpoints. These include the steering wheel, door handles and seats. The CV1 shot also covers 8 cubic metres of space, so it’s perfect for all vehicles, including vans and HGV’s.

Activating your vehicle’s heater or air-conditioning can circulate virus particles around your vehicle, increasing your chance of infection. Remove them with a CV1 shot today!

 

This all sounds great, but what if money’s a little tight? Aren’t there better, cheaper ways to clean your vehicle’s interior?

 

Are there not other ways to clean a vehicle’s interior?

You would be right, there are. However, none are as effective as the CV1 shot. Here’s why.

Disinfectant Spray is the common choice for cleaning surfaces. While it may work well on counter tops in the home, disinfectant spray can actually harm soft leather or fabric seats when used repeatedly. Disinfectant wipes can actually remove parts of the leather, leaving the interior of your vehicle looking worn. Not good for the resale value…

Most importantly, disinfectant spray is much more time-consuming than the CV1 shot! You have to do all the work yourself, and it leaves an unpleasant sticky residue on your seats and surfaces.

As well as this, you should never use bleach or ammonia products in your car. They’re destructive to leather and fabric surfaces, even more so than disinfectant.

A cloth, warm water and soap is a good way to remove COVID-19 particles, but it’s far more time-consuming than the CV1 shot!

 

You might think that good old fashioned soap and water is a great idea but, once again, it’s a time consuming process. Similarly, Isopropyl (a recommended form of cleaner for hard surfaces) is even more effective than soap and water – but is also destructive on leather. It removes the protective coating, leaving the seats vulnerable to future distress.

Plus, gentle wiping isn’t enough to eliminate the virus particles. However, vigorous, frequent scrubbing – while effective against eliminating virus particles – can damage interiors and leave your car looking worn beyond its years. The CV1 shot is a penetrative but non-destructive deep clean. It combines the benefits of conventional disinfectant spray and cleaning products without any of the hassle, residue or elbow grease of the other products. You can also use the CV1 shot regularly to keep your threat of allowing Coronavirus particles to settle in your vehicle at a minimum!

It’s the most effective form of cabin cleaning available on the market today! So, who benefits from this fantastic product the most?
