As COVID-19 outbreak continue, government has implemented the lockdown to keep us all safe from the virus. But what about our cars? Since you are staying home, you won’t be using the car as much. The car wash guy won’t be cleaning cars due to the lockdown, so there’s a danger of any idle car becoming rats’ nest. Right now, rats can choose to live in any car as nobody will be there to disturb or stop them. If you don’t want it to be your car, try and follow the tips shared in this blog.
A car’s engine bay is the favourite hiding spot for rats as it gives them space to live and eat peacefully, plus a whole lot of wires to chew on and keep their teeth in shape. Rats love to hide in the areas behind the battery, under the engine cover, between the headlamps and the radiator, between the firewall and the engine block. These are important some components. Engine bay is heart of every car. If there’s any disturbance, it can be dangerous for the entire car, for you and your family.
Rats usually enter the engine bay jumping onto the axle or drive shafts and making their way deeper into the engine bay. Once inside a car, rat not only will urinate or defecate everywhere, it also leaves a foul smell in the interior. If unfortunately, a rat dies in the air-conditioning system, the only way to get rid of the smell is to professionally get your car cleaned (which is difficult because of the lockdown) and your whole air-conditioning system serviced thoroughly.
Practice these tips to stop rats from entering your car during coronavirus lockdown. When things get back to normal, get your car diesel washed and install an ultrasonic rat repellent in your car’s engine bay to keep rats away from your car for years.
