Health Check – Clean Air Starts Here

March 31, 2020

Clean Air starts here with a AC health check.

Did you know that air-conditioning (AC) systems are the perfect breeding ground for odours, harmful bacteria and fungi? This is due to the units constant exposure to dust, dirt and changing internal climatic conditions.

Mould and mildew are the most common causes of bacteria in your vehicle’s AC that grows as a result of excess moisture, restricted airflow and humidity, which you and your family are inhaling through the air, which is particularly harmful for sufferers of asthma or allergies.The team at John Cole Toyota have come up with some tips to help you get cleaner air by getting rid of the common causes of bacteria and mould, mildew, and dirt.

Things you can do to reduce the growth

  • Clean the Vents: Regularly clean your vehicles air vents. Use a clean cloth and soak it with vinegar. Wipe over your AC vents to remove any dirt & bacteria sitting on the surface.
  • Changing the Air Filter: Air filters should be changed every 12-18 months or 15,000km (which ever comes first).  We recommend that if you drive in dusty or high pollen environments, you should have AC filters replaced more often.
  • Get regular AC Health Checks: Book your vehicle in for a AC health check.  Our technicians have the equipment and skills to review your vehicles systems and provide you with the right advice.
  • Professional Sanitising Air-Conditioner Treatment: If you think your car’s AC unit has accumulated dirt and bacteria, and smells stale, it’s time to have your AC booked in for a thorough cleaning treatment.  At John Cole Toyota, our technicians have the equipment to effectively sanitise and eradicate bacteria & fungi from your AC system, making your vehicles air, cleaner and safer to breathe.
