      What to Know About Intoxalock Mouthpiece and Device Hygiene

      how to clean an ignition interlock device

      Cold, flu, and the spread of COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) have many customers concerned about their Intoxalock mouthpiece's hygiene and device's continued servicing. 

      Steps for cleaning and sanitizing your IID

      To keep mouthpieces and devices sanitary, ignition interlock customers should use these best practices to avoid spreading a virus or other germs.

      Extra interlock mouthpieces

      Keep extra mouthpieces on hand to avoid sharing - extra mouthpieces are available at your local Intoxalock location or by sending a request to Help@Intoxalock.com.

      Clean your interlock mouthpiece

      Clean your mouthpiece regularly with warm water and soap and dry before use.

      Clean off your device

      Clean off the outside of your device by using a disinfectant to avoid surface germs.

      If someone else drives

      If someone else must drive your car, thoroughly clean the exterior of the device before and after, and use an extra interlock mouthpiece or freshly sanitized mouthpiece.  We would recommend allowing at least 20 minutes between disinfecting the device and providing a breath sample.

      Don't put liquid inside

      Reminder - DO NOT put any liquid down inside of the device. Customers are responsible for any damages to the device. 

      The health and well-being of Intoxalock customers, employees, and the general public remains top of mind and our highest priority. We will continue to act thoughtfully to aid customers and provide any information on state changes, should any occur. Any states announcing changes will be listed at the bottom of the page linked here.
