DOES YOUR AIR CONDITIONING PRODUCE A SMELL?
Sometimes, when your car air conditioning system is on, and the windows are down, you can smell something odd. A musty smell. That smell is caused by a build up of mould and bacteria on the evaporator and needs treating. We therefore offer our air conditioning odour removal service which does precisely that.
The evaporator sits behind your dashboard and is almost impossible to get at without removing the dashboard itself. We have information on how your A/C system works and what the evaporator does, but needless to say if you have a musty smell when using the air con you need to get it fixed. Basically, the evaporator gets damp, and with damp, like your shower and bathroom, it collects mould unless cleaned, and mould breeds bacteria, hence the smell. But there is a way to clean it and kill the mould, thus no more smell.
We have 2 methods of treating the problem: Either, with a chemical spray that is injected directly onto the evaporator through the air vents via some very long straws (this tends to be the more thorough solution); Or, we use what’s known as a ‘bomb type’, which means letting off an aerosol within the car whilst the air con is on recycle mode, windows down so the chemicals can circulate throughout the car, coating the evaporator. Both methods work and both leave a pleasant smell afterwards.
This odour removal and bacteria service costs £35.00 if done as part of a full car air conditioning service. Or £55.00 if done on it’s own.
Re-Odourising treatments are £25.00 for a one hour treatment and can be added for that finishing touch to acheive your desired interior fragrance.
