Vehicle disinfection

Economic efficiency relies on transport. The effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on transportation have resulted in reductions in economic activity.

With lockdown easing in many countries around the world, measures are being implemented to get economies moving again. Ensuring vehicles are safe, clean and hygienic with Rentokil's vehicle disinfection services should be a priority.

The importance of vehicle disinfection

Any business that requires the use of vehicles will need to ensure their people and those that depend on their services are protected. Businesses will have to establish valuable social distancing and hygiene measures to prevent further COVID-19 outbreaks.

It is, therefore, important to understand that the virus can remain stable on different surfaces from a few hours up to three days. For example, vehicles touched by drivers, passengers and employees loading and unloading goods can be contaminated by touch or by air-to-surface transmission, such as coughing or sneezing.

Our vehicle disinfection services will help maintain high levels of hygiene for commercial vehicles to reduce the spread of infections.


Our vehicle disinfection includes

Our transport disinfection services have been designed to reduce cross-contamination and reassure staff, customers and visitors that your vehicles are safe and that high standards of hygiene are in place. 


Touchpoint cleaning

Touchpoint cleaning – internal and external – helps to prevent cross-contamination of viruses, targeting key surfaces such as door handles, steering wheels, display screens, seat belts, flooring and gear sticks. 

Internal fogging

Fogging is the quickest way to disinfect larger areas that require rapid re-entry with minimum disruption and can cover a wide range of vehicle surfaces including textiles and those that are difficult to reach using conventional cleaning methods.

Spray and wipe down

The spraying of internal cabs using a high-level disinfectant that kills pathogens with a full internal wipe down will help protect staff so they can continue to provide their vital services.
