Have you ever noticed a musty smell when you turn your A/C system on in your vehicle? This is a common problem people experience in the spring and summer months and usually only means you should bring your vehicle in for an A/C cleaning service. A quick clean of the system can leave the interior of your vehicle smelling fresh and free of any contaminants so you know you’re breathing in fresh air.
Why It’s Important To Clean Your Car’s A/C
As you’re driving down the road, the blower motor is distributing air into the vehicle. At the same time, it’s collecting all of the air contaminants, which can eventually build-up to the point where fungus and bacteria start to form on the plastic where the condensation develops. When this forms, the blower motor is blowing those contaminants into your face. This isn’t ideal for anyone, but particularly for people who deal with allergies. An A/C cleaning service can remove those contaminants so you will breathe in the freshest air possible.
Two Ways To Clean Your Car A/C
One thing you may be able to do on your own annually is to change your cabin air filter. This component filters the air before it gets into your vehicle and can collect a lot of dirt and debris throughout the year. Another effective way to completely clean your system is by using our kit to kill all the bacteria present within the system. One product of the kit is used to bathe the evaporator core in a solution designed to kill the bacteria that’s blowing into the vehicle. We allow it to soak for several minutes, wipe it down, and repeat the process 2-3 times to ensure all the bacteria are killed. The next thing we do is spray an aerosol into the recycling motor of the A/C system, which sucks it in and distributes it through the vent system. It’s designed to kill the bacteria that has formed on the wet plastic vents over time.
