In light of the Coronavirus affecting the whole world, it is more important than ever to ensure our cabin cleaning methods are at a high standard to protect heavy vehicle operators.

There are many recommendations to keep cabin and air conditioning systems clean as possible to help stop the spread of viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites.

Here are four highly recommended practices for light and heavy vehicles:

  • Air filters to be regularly replaced, cleaned or upgraded:
    1. Most AC systems will have a recirculation filter that require change or to be cleaned on a periodical basis.Sy-Klone FFX Re-circulation filter
    2. There are mining and construction cabin options for recirculation filter upgrades to higher filtration levels such as the Sy-Klone FFX2.

    1. There are credible evaporator cleaners such as Viper Clean. These products can be sprayed onto the evaporator every 3-6 months to keep it clean. They utilise slow release enzymes which keep your evap coils cleaner and less restrictive for longer.
