Stripped out car Doing mold remediation in a car

Having a water damage in your house and the possibility of mold due to that is an upsetting thought. What about the possibility of mold within our vehicles?

The cars that are built and sold today are quality checked and inspected and interior problems are rare. 

However, how would you know if you had a problem? Well frankly, it is tough to determine. Our local climate is very wet in spring, we can have heavy rains in summer and fall, and winters are cold and we carry snow and ice into our cars from our shoes and boots.

The same rules apply to cars as with our homes, "you don't have a mold problem, you have a moisture problem."

Be aware of your car’s environment. Do a quick inspection, especially after heavy rains. Check for signs of wetness on carpeting, your dash, seats or headliner. Listen for signs of water accumulation in the duct work, (usually noticeable when you turn and you hear sloshing.) Finally, do you smell a musty odor in the car.

The mold damage professionals can handle any situation that you will encounter!
