Breathe Easy, Drive healthier
Matt Peacock, MD of Star Tech, Mercedes Benz and BMW Specialists in Poole, explains the importance of cabin health in our car.
Our cars have just experienced their first lockdown alongside us. There they have sat, in solitude on our driveways, perhaps washed a little more than usual, their fuel tanks full and their engines cold.
It’s easy to think that as long as your car didn’t succumb to a weak or flat battery, then everything else will be fine and dandy. However, cars are built to be driven and lengthy periods of standing can bring other problems, especially with your air conditioning & ventilation.
Whether you are using your vehicle’s heater or air conditioning system, condensation can build due to dark, damp and warm conditions. This can become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, mould and fungi. Furthermore, when the system is turned on, bacteria is drawn through the vehicle’s air vents into the car’s interior and straight in to your airways.
As a result, this can cause:
- Infections & sore throats
- Allergic reactions
- Eye irritation
- Unpleasant, musty odours
During these worrying times with Coronavirus, we all want to reduce risks to health, so what can you do to combat this?
Well, here at Star Tech, our latest technology has arrived and we can now offer the Forte Power-Clean AC Service. Firstly, we can service your car’s ventilation system and eliminate bacteria within your air con system. Secondly, it sanitises all surfaces within your vehicle’s cabin.

- Kill 99.9% of bacteria including Sars-Cov-2 (Covid-19)
