EPA says Mitsubishi cleaning service kills COVID
The Environmental Protection Agency now says that a cleaning service provided at Mitsubishi dealerships kills COVID-19.
The cleaning service involves pumping an antimicrobial spray through a car’s air conditioning system, and spraying surfaces directly. The company says this allows the spare to permeate the air conditioning system and the interior of the car.
The service is now available to everyone, regardless of vehicle make or model. The service costs about $20. Locally, it’s available at the Mitsubishi dealerships in Madison and Clarksville.
