USE A CLEANING PRODUCT THAT CONTAINS ENZYMES TO CLEAN CAR INTERIOR SMELL:
Odor problems in your cars ac system are easy to remove with ac car interior cleaners. The best way to remove your cars interior ac odor is to use a cleaner that uses enzymes. Enzymes in cleaners kill odors at the source and completely kill the smelly substance material and therefore stopping the a bad smell. Do not use common household cleaners as most do not have enzymes and the majority are just heavily perfumed which only masks the smell.

How To Remove Smells From Your Cars A/C Vent System

REMOVING CIGARETTE SMOKE FROM A CARS INTERIOR:
Cigarette smoke is probably the hardest of the smells to remove from your cars ac vents. The smoke from cigarettes gets into everything within your cars interior. You can remove the tobacco stench by shampooing the carpets, the upholstery and the headliner using an enzyme based cleaning product. After cleaning these areas of your car it is best to use an Odor Neutralizer with enzymes to finish the job and remove smoke smell for good.

WHY YOUR CARS AC VENTS MAY SMELL BAD:
If the bad smell is coming directly out of the cars air conditioning (A/C) system then there are a few methods to try. The air that comes into your car through the interior ac vents goes past the cars evaporator. Water condenses around the coils on the evaporator and the moisture on the evaporator makes it easy for harmful air particles, dust, dirt, pollen, spores and germs to enter your cars interior. These air particles form harmful and smelly substances such as bacteria, mites, and fungus.

Dirty Cabin Air Filter

Removing and replacing a dirty cabin air filter on your car can stop that bad smell

CHECK YOUR CARS REPLACEABLE CABIN AIR FILTER:
Newer cars have an air filter inside the cabin of the car that removes bad smells from the air that comes into the car. You can look in your owners manual to find out if your car had a removable air filter installed. If your car has an air filter, then remove and replace it with one that your car manufacturer recommends. Sometimes after replacing the dirty air filter that horrible smell can still be present. If the smell remains you can get your car an A/C and heating system cleaning. These A/C System Cleaners are sprayed into the exterior air intake vents (located just underneath the windshield wipers) and the inside the cars vents. These cleaners kill odors that are actually inside your cars ac vent system.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CARS AC VENT SYSTEM:
First turn on the ac to full, make sure the “recirculate” button is not on, spray a large amount of cleaner with odor killing enzymes into the EXTERIOR air intakes that are located just below the windshield wipers, let the car run for about 10 minutes with the ac on, after 10 minutes turn off ac and spray the cleaner into the ac vents on the INSIDE of your car. After doing all this, let the car sit for 20 minutes turned off and windows rolled up. Then repeat if the smell is still in the car. By doing this you are killing the bacteria or mold in the car ac vent ducts and also the evaporator mold that may be present.
