If you’ve detected mold in your car’s ventilation system, follow these steps to effectively eliminate mold and musty odor:

  1. Dry Out the Entire Vehicle:
    • Mold thrives in damp environments, so start by ensuring your vehicle is dry and moisture-free.
    • Park your car in direct sunlight with the windows open to aid in drying.
  2. Protective Gear:
    • Wear eye goggles and gloves to safeguard your health during the cleaning process
  3. Spray Disinfectant Through Vents:
    • Locate the intake vents near the windshield.
    • Spray an antibacterial mold cleaning solution into the vents.
    • Turn on the car’s fan and let the cleaner circulate through the HVAC system for at least 10 minutes.
  4. Wipe Down Surfaces:
    • Use a clean cloth to wipe down surfaces within the air intake vent system.
    • Pay attention to hard-to-reach areas.
  5. Replace the Cabin Air Filter:
    • Install a new cabin air filter to maintain clean air circulation.

Remember, acting promptly is crucial to prevent mold regrowth. Avoid running your car’s AC until the mold has been eliminated.
