Provides a long lasting clean, for $99
Returning sparkling clean vehicles to their owners has always been part of the service at MB Autoworks. Now Calgary’s only Mercedes-Benz Collision Repair Centre has teamed up with Viral Defense Solutions’ DrivePur sanitization treatment to take cleanliness to a new, microscopic level.
Joining a growing group of North American bodyshops, MB Autoworks was the first auto body repair shops in Calgary to offer the DrivePur treatment.
Fresch kill rate of 99.99% for viruses and bacteria
The two-stage application begins with DrivePur’s Fresch™ antiseptic – 100% natural eucalyptus oil that has a kill rate of 99.99% for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) and other viruses, as well as other pathogens including Staph, MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus), mold and bacteria. That application is followed by a water-based, non-toxic spray with a titanium dioxide formula widely used in hospital operating rooms and ICUs. It creates a nano-thin antimicrobial coating that helps prevent viruses, bacteria, mold and allergens from attaching to the vehicle’s interior surfaces for up to six months. All vehicle contact surfaces are treated, including steering wheel, dashboard, consoles, door handles, trunk interior and latch.
In nano-sized particle form, titanium dioxide exhibits photocatalytic activity when exposed to natural light, sterilizing and deodorizing microbes that contact it for up to six months. Vehicle owners receiving the treatment are advised not to use disinfecting chemicals or products containing more than 70% alcohol to clean their vehicle’s surfaces, because doing so could weaken or cancel the formula’s pathogen-killing properties.
DrivePur is a non-toxic sanitization and sterilizing treatment
DrivePur started in the U.S. in 2008 as a non-toxic cleaning and sterilizing treatment for hospitals, offices, vehicle interiors and other environments where harsh chemicals are not welcome. Customer and staff safety is always top of mind at MB Autoworks, so we have applied the DrivePur Treatment to our replacement vehicles at no extra charge to the customer, as well as offered DrivePur to our staff to sanitize their vehicles free of charge.
“We’re very excited to be able to offer this service, especially in light of the pandemic,” says Manager Ed Rackham. “With everyone so concerned about sanitization, I think many, if not most, of our customers will opt for it. I wish we could offer it to everyone who wants it, but for now only MB Autoworks customers getting their vehicles repaired are eligible for this optional service.”
The DrivePur treatment is available for $99 – ask for it with your next repair!
