Mildew and Mold in your car

Mold is a type of fungus that consist on small organisms found almost everywhere. Mold spores are usually harmless but if they land on a damp spot in your car it could make you experience health problems. Elderly, kids, infants, and those with weak immune systems are compromised.

There are several ways we have seen that cars get mold here in Orlando. Here are a few examples of serious cases of mold in cars we have gotten:

  • Leaving water bottles (including never opened ones) in a car with the windows closed inside a garage. 
  • Parking a car with sunroof under trees for several months. This causes the sunroof drains to clog leaving the water no alternative to find its way out through underneath your carpet. 
  • AC leaking water underneath the carpet. 
  • Leaving your car with one or several windows cracked open. Usually a vehicle that is not used often.
  • Water spills that were not cleaned properly.

 

To prevent mildew from your car we recommend cinnamon or clove oil to be spread on all the car surfaces every month. We also recommend reading above sample cases of mold in your car and try to evade those situations. Also, something that makes your seats and carpets waterproof like Nasiol Nano Seat Protect will most likely prevent this.
