CA Body Shop Offers Service to Keep Cars Clean During Pandemic

Written by Erin Roney, Bakersfield Now

The pandemic has hit a lot of businesses hard, but Color Coat Restoration found a way to keep customers coming in while helping the Bakersfield, CA, area.

The auto body shop started offering the option to disinfect cars back in March. They are using an E-FECTicide, saying it’s EPA approved and used to disinfect high touch areas.


CCR says it’s the same product used to clean hospitals, nursing homes and patient rooms.


The service is drawing more people into their shop, seeing about 35 to 40 cars a day.


"I think just more concerned citizens coming in, looking out for their family, making sure they are safe, making sure the virus is kept down to a minimum," said Gilbert Pacheco with Color Coat Restoration.


CCR says the it’s about $15 dollars to have them disinfect a customer's car, but it's free with another service. It takes about half an hour to an hour to do.
