How To Tell If Your Car Is Teeming With Mold

Many people think mold is something that only grows in bathrooms or basements, but the reality is that almost anywhere can become a breeding ground for mold. And one such space is your car. 

When moisture gets into your vehicle it causes mold to grow quickly, and often in spaces you can’t see, like under seats or in the trunk. This can cause health issues and affect your experience driving your car, so consider keeping the following signs in mind and remember to call our car mold remediation services at Flood Pros if you notice anything is wrong. 

Musty Smells

Mold has a very unique smell that is easy to identify. If your car smells either stale, earthy, or musty, it’s a sign that there are mold spores in the air. These can cause issues when inhaled, so get on top of it and contact the mold remediation experts fast.

Visible Changes

When you can see mold growing, it’s really becoming a serious problem. This can look like black, white, or green spots that start growing on our upholstery in your vehicle. At first, the affected area will seem small, but it can quickly turn into a much bigger issue over time. Don’t be distracted by using cleaning products, as mold is tough to remove, it’s better to just call the people with the right tools from the beginning.

Persistent Allergies

If you realize you and your passengers are experiencing increased allergy symptoms such as itchy eyes or a runny nose while they’re in the car, it is definitely a problem. Mold is an allergen that can cause huge issues for people’s health. So if you notice yourself experiencing these issues, call the experts sooner rather than later. 

Increased Moisture

Another sign is an increase in moisture in the car. This may be harder for you to notice, but common when cars are parked in leaky garages or outside in the elements and manifests in ways such as foggy windows, damp floor mats, or even a sticky feeling in the vehicle. Airing your car out can help alleviate this issue, but you may also need to use a dehumidifier or other solutions such as parking your car in a different place or checking door seals.
