Tips to deal with moldy smells inside your Toyota cars' vents


Recommended Posts

There are times when you get a surprise when you turn on your air conditioning and there is that strange, almost moldy smell invading your car. Most likely, there has been a build-up without your notice, and mold and mildew have chosen to settle in as a result of the moisture released by your air conditioning system.

So today I got some recommendations to get that moldy smell off your Toyota car 🤪

First, make sure to clean a possible source of food. It is best practice to avoid any possible food source for this bacteria, which includes dead leaves that are usually close or trapped on the air intakes. These air intakes are usually located near the windshield cowling.

Second, make sure to set and maintain all drain tubes of your air conditioning unit. You could use an anti-bacterial treatment to kill the bacteria that has grown behind your dash frame. This solution should also be injected into the AC case.

Third, make your own DIY spray for molds and all other disagreeable smells with vinegar and water. While vinegar does not have the most pleasant odor, it will naturally combat mildew and will eventually fade away without the use of harmful chemicals. You should add half a lemon to make it smell better.

Great tips,

I can add one more,.- Kill the bacteria with heat., after all above has been done correctly turn off heating and start the engine, let it run for 15 min on idle then turn on heating at max temperature and speed fun 2-3, air flow from outside and let it blow through all vents for around 10 min, you can keep all doors shut and all windows half an inch open, this way you kill the bacteria in your aircon - heating ducts plus completely drying your interior, after the procedure clean all windows inside and keep all doors open for 5-10 min to air your car. 👍
