Air Con & Bacteria Treatment

  • Barrowford MOT Centre

Car Air Conditioning

The main purpose of the air conditioning is to remove moisture within the interior of the car. When the air conditioning system is used it pulls this moisture out of the air and holds it in the evaporator in the form of liquid, this liquid (water) eventually drains away outside on the floor via a drain tube located in the base of the evaporator housing.

As this liquid drains away some moisture still remains on the evaporator. Over a period of time your air conditioning system including the ventilation air vents develop a build up of fungal deposits. If left untreated these fungal deposits release spores which could be harmful to you. Breathing in these spores could lead to flu type symptoms and also cause problems for asthma sufferers.

To eliminate this fungal problem Barrowford MOT advise you to use your air conditioning on a regular basis and to have the ventilation system treated every six months.

Pollen Filter

Ideally the pollen filter, which is sometimes located behind the glove box should be replaced. The pollen filter plays a very important role of keeping airborne particles out of your car, such as dust, pollen and leaves and by replacing this filter on an annual basis keeps the air coming in the cabin filtered and fresh. It will also help with Hay Fever when the pollen count is at an all time high!


If you would like your air conditioning to be treated, then call the Barrowford MOT garage on 01282 696351 and we will book you in straight away.
