There’s nothing like a fresh, clean car to make your time behind the wheel enjoyable. Gleaming paint and spotless glass make your vehicle look great – but how does it smell? Mold and mildew, cigarette smoke, and pet odors can seep into your vehicle’s interior, making it less than inviting to ride in.
DC Clear Auto Bra offers professional car deodorizing services for your vehicle. Maybe something spilled in your car and you’re having trouble locating the source of the smell. Or perhaps you purchased your vehicle pre-owned, and it’s always had a musty odor. Whatever your situation, we can help!
Common Car Odors
Food Odor. The smell of rotten food can be nauseating, especially when it’s left to sit in a hot car. The problem is that there are so many places in a car for smelly things to hide. A forgotten bag of groceries or a baby bottle that rolled under the seat can become quite ripe in a short amount of time. If there’s a hidden stench in your car, we will search every pocket, crack and crevice until we locate and neutralize it.
Car Sickness. Sometimes children and pets suffer from motion sickness during a drive. They can’t help it, but even after you’ve cleaned up after them, a sour smell can linger. Our professionals use enzyme-busting cleaning supplies that break down stubborn odors on a chemical level, ridding your car of any sign of sickness.
Mildew. Too much moisture can lead to mold and mildew. Not only do these substances smell bad, they are also common allergens for many drivers – and it’s hard to be safe behind the wheel when you’re constantly sneezing and coughing. DC Clear Auto Bra will remove the source of the mold and mildew, thoroughly clean them from your car’s interior, and apply odor-absorbing cleaners to make your car smell fresh again.
Cigarette Smoke. Smoke can be a tough odor to remove. As an allergen, it can cause headaches, nausea, and even flare-ups of bronchitis and asthma in some individuals. We will keep you and your passengers safe and happy by using a multi-step deep-cleaning process to eliminate smoke odor in your vehicle.
Air Conditioner. Have you noticed a foul smell coming from your air conditioner vents? Is there moisture on the floor mats near your air conditioner? If so, you could have a mold problem in your air filter. Our team will investigate the odor, check for mold and mildew in the filter, and clean and replace everything as needed to eliminate the smell.
Most car smells are fairly harmless, but there are some you should be aware of that could be hinting at bigger problems. If you smell gasoline inside your car, you could have a gas leak. This should be quickly addressed by a professional, as gas fumes are volatile and could pose a fire risk.
Exhaust fumes are another cause for alarm. An exhaust leak can start in the muffler, exhaust pipes, or your vehicle’s manifold. When the fumes back up into the engine compartment, they enter the car’s cabin through the ventilation system. These fumes can be toxic, so you should get the underlying leak fixed immediately.
A strong, sulfurous smell, like that of rotten eggs, could indicate a failing catalytic converter. This occurs when the catalytic converter can no longer break down sulfur from the engine. They cannot be repaired, so this odor is an indication that yours should be replaced.
Finally, be alert to any burning smells inside your car. They could be an indication of a serious issue like overheating, or a sign of a failing heating coil.
