There are so many legal and sanitary reasons for you to keep your company vehicles clean, but many don’t realize just how much of an impact it can have on the environment. When we think about things we can do to make the earth a little better, it often involves tasks such as recycling and carpooling to cut down on emissions. While these small things are great to do at home, making sure that your fleet of trucks stays clean is a way to employ some social responsibility, which—by the way—positions your company in a positive light to the public.
There are multiple reasons to make sure that your vehicles are constantly sanitized, and it isn’t always only about microscopic contaminants. Invasive species, for example, are animals and plants that are not native to an area, but find their way there and thrive , causing devastation. These species can travel in a number of ways, but it is often caused by some kind of human transport. Bugs and other animals can find their way onto things like planes and cars, and can end up hundreds or even thousands of miles away from their natural habitat. If there is a method for them to mate, an infestation is always possible. So what does this have to do with your trucks?
Even if you don’t see or hear bugs inside your vehicles, you may still be transporting them. Many bugs lay eggs, and there are often dozens in a clutch. If your truck was chosen as the haven for a bug to put those eggs, and you then drive a long distance without sanitizing your vehicle, there is a good chance that they will survive and grow in another area.
