During the COVID-19 pandemic, the public has been more aware than ever of cross-contamination, which extends from the home to the office to the car, and beyond. An innovative product from a Dallas-based company has just received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an eco-friendly disinfectant designed to keep car interiors safer.
NuVinAir's ReKlenz-X kills 99.9 percent of germs, bacteria, and viruses in a vehicle's interior without compromising the integrity of the cabin, the company says. The product is on the EPA's "List N," which includes disinfectants for use to combat SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
"NuVinAir has proudly been at the forefront of helping ensure healthier commutes to drivers and passengers since launching in 2015. Adding this EPA-approved, oxygen-infused product that actually kills what's behind the coronavirus gives us an exciting extension to our 'Total Health' application," says Kyle Bailey, NuVinAir Global's chief executive officer and founder.
To clean, the proprietary product uses an oxygen-enriched formula to quickly kill bacteria and viruses by destroying their cell walls through a process called oxidation. According to NuVinAir, ReKlenz-X contains no harsh chemicals, sticky residue, or dangerous volatile organic compounds. The result is a disinfected vehicle with no chemical smell.
ReKlenz-X is available in 32-ounce spray bottles through automotive dealerships, detail shops, rental-car companies, service centers, and vehicle fleets.
"Until now, any possible solution for killing the coronavirus was wrought with harmful chemicals, expensive equipment, and residue-leaving application devices that destroy the vehicle's interior," says Troy Blackwell, Chief Operating Officer for NuVinAir Global. "As a disinfectant and sanitizer, it can be applied to all interior vehicle surfaces using a microfiber towel."
