We are are now offering Ozone Sanitisation for all car interiors. Since ozone is a gas, it can deodorise and sanitise those hard to reach places on your cars interior, making sure you get a greater than 99.9% kill rate of bacteria, viruses and molds.

We now provide this service free of charge on every car we sell and service effective May 18th 2020 onwards.

We are also offering this service to the public for a special introductory price of €35.00 including VAT, including a complimentary 125ml MICIL Distillery Hand Sanitiser.

The service takes approximately one hour and can be completed while you wait. To book please call 091 383000 or fill in a callback request form.

Why use Ozone to sanitise your car?

  • Ozone is among the most powerful oxidizing agents known. In fact many hospitals around the world use large ozone generators to decontaminate operating rooms between surgeries.
  • It greatly reduces the occurrence and growth of bacteria, moulds, mites, fungus, yeasts, pollens and also inactivates viruses. 
  • One of the fastest, most effective, and safest ways to tackle persistent odors is with an ozone generator. Ozone removes offending odors by breaking down molecules, spores and bacteria. Ozone (03) is a very reactive molecule which reacts with particles in the air and on surfaces. It attaches itself to other molecules and changes the chemical structure that creates neutral smelling molecules, thereby cleaning the air.​

Can Ozone's Effectiveness in Killing SARS Coronavirus Combat COVID-19?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).

Since ozone has been proven to kill 99.999 percent of pathogens in the air, including SARS Coronavirus and influenzas such as H5N1, researchers believe that ozone may be an important and effective tool in combatting and neutralizing the new stronger strand Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), which has a similar makeup to SARS.

Ozone is nature’s cleanser. It is naturally formed by lightning through a process called "Corona Discharge" as well as by "UV Light" from the sun and can be found within the stratospheric layer of our atmosphere known as the “Ozone Layer." Generated, "High Energy", UltraViolet or Electricity strikes Oxygen (O2) molecules forcing the two atoms to split and collect a third, creating Ozone (O3). When ozone, encounters a pathogen, one of the oxygen atoms separates, pierces the cell wall of the pathogen and destroys it.

Ozone destroys viruses (which are composed of small particles made up of crystals) by attacking the nucleic acid core, thus damaging the viral RNA. After the ozone destroys and purifies these particles, the ozone dissipates and reverts back to healthy breathable oxygen with zero harmful by-products. In past studies, 99 percent of viruses have been destroyed and showed damage to their envelope proteins after 30 seconds of exposure to ozone. Since COVID-19 is an enveloped virus, exposure to ozone may result in the virus's failure to attach to normal, healthy cells, and the breakdown of the single-stranded RNA can lead to the destruction of the virus.

For decades, ozone has been the safest and most cost-effective option for protecting people by killing dangerous viruses, bacteria and other threats in homes, businesses and vehicles. It is the strongest disinfectant available to the public. The FDA, USDA and EPA have approved ozone as an antimicrobial disinfectant. Ozone is 3,000 times faster and 50% more powerful than bleach, kills Staph, Salmonella, E.coli, Listeria, Strep, MRSA, mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses on impact without any chemical residue left behind
