Your car’s heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system is a wet system as it has refrigerant and with the changing temperatures, it builds up a lot of moisture condensation over time. With this moisture buildup these are ideal places for mold, mildew, bacteria and other micro-organisms to grow. Spores from these micro-organisms are then blown into the passenger cabin and if left untreated will colonize inside the vehicle. If you’re searching online musty smell in car well, that’s what you’re smelling!

At AutoNiche, we have a product to address this buildup issue and it’s received great client feedback! We also like that the product is primarily aimed at the health of the driver and passengers, not the vehicle. We spend a lot of time in our cars, let’s take care of our health too.

Our technician uses a cleaning solution that gets drawn into the HVAC system and it mists out to the rest of the inside cabin. The solution is safe, and it targets and removes mold, pollen, and inanimate organic particulates to the source of the problem. The process allows the solution to cover the headliner and the vehicle’s seats as well. In order to complete this service, we need to remove the cabin air filter (if it’s directly in the vent system) and our clients often opt to have this maintenance done while during a cabin air filter replacement.

If you’re looking to get rid of musty smell in your car then we strongly recommend starting with the cabin air filter replacement and HVAC maintenance service. Completing this service every 1 to 2 years is a good guideline for preventative maintenance. Think of how much time you spend in your vehicle and the quality of air that you breath in. We want to make sure that everyone is healthy!
