The nose often picks up what the eye does not see.

Traffic pollution is an invisible enemy to which your nose, throat and lungs are the most sensitive. Little wonder then that most cars come with air conditioning, either as standard or a good value option to counteract the effects of this invisible assault on your senses.

The alarming truth is that your cars insulation material and within the deep recesses of its air conditioning system lies a hidden enemy: a colony of microscopic bacteria breeding and assaulting your senses with airborne particles.

Thousands of motorists suffer the symptoms each day; in worst cases, the effects of the bacteria aggravate allergic reactions causing runny noses, sore throats and asthma like symptoms.

Effectively, it is the automotive equivalent of sick building syndrome.

Have you noticed musty or foul odours entering your car or switching on the heating or air conditioning?

The bacteria along with mould and fungi flourish

The bacteria along with mould and fungi flourish in the build-up of condensation produced by a car’s air conditioning system.

That means more motorists than ever are at risk, as the number of new vehicles in the UK fitted with air conditioning reaches record levels of almost 750,000 per year.

Air conditioning can counteract urban pollution seeping into a car’s interior, however, that could make matters worse.

The findings arose from research into unexplained odours in vehicles, which are often put down to something in the carpet and upholstery or perhaps the family dog.

air conditioning units should be cleaned professionally at least once a year

The AA has been conducting its own investigation and their Head of Technical Policy, John Stubbs has said,

“Air conditioning needs regular servicing by technicians who know what they are doing and who use manufacturers’ recommended biocides to clean out the system properly”.

When a bad smell occurs, the car’s owner needs to be certain that the air conditioning system is purged properly or the problem can return.

The majority of car manufacturers recommend that air conditioning units be cleaned professionally at least once a year with a special disinfectant treatment.

This should be applied to the heater matrix and ventilation ducting to penetrate the build-up of dirt inside and to remove any germs, mildew or unpleasant smells.

A full treatment takes up to an hour.
