How do I know if my vehicle has Mold?

The first indication of the presence of mold in cars is a Damp and Musty smell that you will be able to smell as soon as you open your vehicle. Even if the mold is not visible in the vehicle, the smell is an indication that there is mold in the vehicle. Visually, if you can see a Fuzzy-looking, moss-like substance growing, it’s a clear indication of Mold in your car.

What is the vehicle mold removal Process?

Science has proven that mold and most viruses including the coronavirus cannot survive at temperatures over 80°C. 
So instead of throwing in a bunch of chemicals, that may or may not work. our vehicle mold removal service makes the use of superheated steam at over 120°C, to ensure that all the mold viruses in vehicles are killed on contact.
Our mold removal & virus removal services include steaming the entire vehicle (including headliner seatbelts and trunk area) with superheated steam from our commercial-grade steamers.

What do you do for air-borne mold particles in vehicles including in the vents?

After doing full remediation for mold with our steamers, we will do an Ozone Treatment in your vehicles for 30 mins. Ozone gas has been proven to kill 99.999 percent of pathogens in the air, including SARS Coronavirus and influenzas such as H5N1.

How about the Mold Smell in my car?

The Ozone gas will kill the air-borne spores and take care of 90% of the smells. Once the car is Mold Free, we request that you drive with windows down so that the vehicle can be aired, and you let the moisture get out.

How does Mold Form in a car?

Most often mold forms in cars due to water leaking into a closed vehicle where air circulation is limited. This could also be due to condensation that naturally occurs during winters. As long as the vehicle is well ventilated and there is air circulation, the chance of mold forming in vehicles is minimal.

How do I make sure the mold does not come back in my car?

After we complete the service, we request our client to consider the following.
Drive for the first 30 minutes with windows down to let the Ozone gas go away (Ozone is NOT very healthy)
Roll down one window by an inch so that internal moisture has somewhere to escape (if the weather outside is not raining)
If the vehicle had excess water, please consider running a small space heater in the vehicle with a window rolled down by an inch. (please monitor the heater and make sure the heat is not excessive, please take care of electrical wiring)
