Cleaning our Dealership

Each day Sherwood Ford has many guests visit, our staff safely assisting them with test drives, service of vehicles and getting parts. We ensure the highest standards and proactively strive to create an environment as clean as realistically possible.  Read below how we are taking preventative action. 

Dealership Cleaning and Sanitization

The dealership facilities are given a light disinfecting clean throughout the day, a full clean and interior detail daily. In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)  Sherwood Ford has taken precautionary measures to expand and increase the frequency of our dealership sanitization. We are continuing to clean with our approved products, including disinfectant for lavatories, along with all-purpose cleaning products. In addition to these cleaners, we have added  disinfecting wipes and spray.

How can you protect yourself?

Human Coronaviruses cause infections of the nose, throat and lungs. They are  most commonly spread from an infected person through:

  • respiratory droplets generated when you cough or sneeze
  • close, prolonged personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
  • touching something with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands

We encourage all guests and staff to engage in  preventative measures.
