Do you ever get musky odors coming from your car’s air vents? It’s a fairly common experience for Denver drivers. Moisture can accumulate in the air conditioning/heating ventilation system allowing mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria to grow.
Disinfecting and deodorizing is a process. Depending on how serious the problem, there are a couple of approaches Express Car Care may take to get rid of the unwanted smells. For mild situations (especially on newer vehicles) a special deodorizing disinfectant is introduced into the ventilation system. This may be an aerosol or a mist application.
The treatment kills the offending organisms and deodorizes the system. Sometimes in older vehicles, a good deal of mildew or other microorganisms can grow on the air conditioning evaporator, which is housed in the heating/air conditioning air blend box behind the dashboard. In this situation, the blend box is filled with disinfecting foam that can eliminate stubborn organisms and return a fresh, clean scent. In all of this, don’t forget your cabin air filter. This is the filter that cleans the air coming into the passenger compartment of your vehicle.
Denver residents can have the cabin air filter replaced to eliminate unpleasant odors. This is the first line of defense. Changing the cabin air filter as needed can actually prevent further contamination problems down the road. If you are experiencing any unusual odors, sounds, or vibrations, talk to your knowledgeable Express Car Care service adviser. He can recommend the needed steps to discover the problem and what it will take to set it right.
